New Shots and Changes

Take two on the heron in flight. I've modified the ripples in the water some. I thought that the other was just too much white for the background.

And a new shot of the wading heron. Just a bit better color, nothing in the artwork itself has changed.

I've sprayed both of these with archival spray - it's an acrylic spray that claims to preserve paper works for an extended time.

Here is my wading heron. This piece is in colored pencil on dark blue Tiziano paper. Many thanks to Alan and Elaine Wilson of for allowing me to use their photography as inspiration.

This is my heron in flight. Both pieces are 11 x 14 inches. I'm using the paper itself as the background with rings and reflections as just a suggestion of water.

Horse Feathers

Not really....

Just a quick peek at my current project. I'm about 25% finished.

I'll be at "A Day Downtown" in Fuquay Varina October 31st. I'll have some original art and photographs.
