Retired and loving every moment that I'm away from the job I used to have. Someone at my old workplace once said.."if you have the talent you have, why are you still working here?".
I said, "I'm not for long".
I was always asked the question, "what will you do?". Well, plenty.
I began sketching and drawing when just as a child of 7. I graduated to pastels and still lifes. After a year at college I decided to go Vo-Tech. I had ambitions to become a "graphic artist". That would be my first mistake...I should have went commercial.
Five children, two divorces and two jobs working for the government later, here I am. More educated, full of regret but still blessed with the talent I had as a kid.
I've went from sketches, pastels, oil pastels to water color pencils and water colors. My main area of emphasis is landscapes.
I did two versions of this scene...this one was primarily done with sponge and one brush.
study one of clouds...
study two of cloud study
winter time in the great northwest...
