Here is the website for the Ann Arbor skate park art show/auction.  You can see past entries, event info, and, if you are sagacious enough an internet wanderer, you might even find my name listed as a participant. :-D

Saturday, May 15th!!!  Be there, or be laaaaaaaaaaaame.  (full disclosure: I'll be lame)


I have it from two reliable sources that my deck sold for $150 on Saturday!  :-D!

Cats fish with Cattails

These are the three cats featured in a commissioned by my friend Joe as a birthday gift for his girlfriend, Gina. The painting was in watercolor with a little acrylic pen used to accent particular areas.

I am always hesitant to create art from life or photographs, much preferring to draw from my own imagination for inspiration.  So I found myself a bit out of the comfort zone when Joe first asked me if I'd be interested in making something for him.  With sketching and practice, however, the subject matter got less and less intimidating.  Eventually, I was ready to start on the final piece and, I must say, I am surprised how it turned-out.  Images of the full work to follow.
