My very talented friend, John, :iconwhizziewhizzer: did me the honor of drawing my portrait from my original deviantID. I :love: it so much, I made it my new deviantID. Take a look at it full size John, there are no words for how much I love this. 1000 thanks, my friend!!! :hug::kiss:

I'm a self-taught portrait/figure artist who used to work in graphite. But, I'm finding I need a change of pace, so I'm switching to a combination of soft pastel and pastel pencil. I still have a :love: for graphite work, so I'll probably still do some every now and then, but for the most part, it's pastels for me from here on out.

A Fresh Start...

Journal Entry: Sun May 5, 2013, 10:35 PM
It's time for a fresh start, with a new commitment and new media. I've been experimenting with both pastel and watercolor techniques, and while I haven't settled on one technique in particular, I'm pretty sure that whatever I settle on is gonna include a mix of both.

I also realize it's been wayyyyyy too long since I posted new art, but I didn't want to just post for the sake of posting...I really need to feel inspired. It took a good friend introducing me to his 8-yr-old son (who loves to draw) to kickstart the inspiration/motivation. Kids ALWAYS remind me that above all else, art should be fun, and that the process has to be enjoyed as much as the finished product...MY JOY IS BACK!!!
