Tom Selleck – charcoal and carbon

“Quigly Down Under” was one of my favorite shows of Tom Selleck.  Rendered in charcoal and carbon on Fabriano Artistico hotpress water-color paper. Not much to say, except that I’ll be moving on to different subjects after this portraiture.  Continue reading Tom Selleck – charcoal and carbon

“Sam Elliott” – charcoal and carbon

Decided to switch back to the portraits for a bit in order to draw another cowboy, who seems to be legendary from the mid-70s to present.  Not going into any details here since it isn’t really different from any other portrait I’ve drawn.  Layering the charcoal is the only thing that really keeps your drawings more dimensional and gives them depth. Enjoy!   Continue reading “Sam Elliott” – charcoal and carbon

“A Timid Beauty” – charcoal and carbon

The second in a series of horse drawings involving the same horse. I’m thinking of doing a third to make a completed series of three but haven’t decided yet. Your feedback would be appreciated in determining this. The process was exactly the same as “A Silent Beauty”, so there is no sense in repeating that process here. Hope you enjoy!  Continue reading “A Timid Beauty” – charcoal and carbon

R.O.A.R – juried exhibit in Russell, Kansas


This coming Saturday and Sunday, (October 6th and 7th) I’ll be submitting several of my original drawings into the R.O.A.R – Russell’s Original Art Review. This is an event that has been going on for 50 years and draws quite a few artists from all across Kansas. I am hoping that my work will be accepted for jury. Results of jury will be announced the final day of the exhibit. The exhibit is open to the public from October 12th – 14th, ending at 4 p.m. in Russell, Kansas in the exhibition center located on the fair grounds northeast of town.

Hope to see some of you there!

GALLERY ALLEY – October 26th, 2018

Greetings!  I have another solo art exhibit coming up October 26th, 2018 at “GALLERY ALLEY” located at 616 E. Douglas Ave, Wichita, Kansas.  This will be a ONE DAY event and I will have mostly ALL ORIGINALS on display: horses, Hollywood character portraits, mastercopies of Frank Frezetta, Bougeureau, and my own works.  It’s an outdoor venue, so this is going to depend upon the weather conditions that evening. Show will run from 6 – 9 p.m. if the weather proves cooperative. Live music will also be available and lots of places to eat will be very close, or right across the street!  And don’t forget!  I still have my “Essence of Charcoal” going on at “L’image” over at 615 West Douglas until October 12th.
