Evening everyone! I have some fantastic news!  Continue reading SECOND PLACE WINNER in the R.O.A.R Juried Art Exhibit!


“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.

“Silent Beauty” – charcoal horse drawing

Well, folks….it’s that time again.  Time for another horse drawing! And not just any old fuddy-duddy horse drawing that I usually post! No sirree bob!  Well….I’ll let you decide on that. Gonna be simple but final results will be posted first with some close ups. Enjoy and please be sure to either comment, like, or tell me I stink….it happens.

“Hey Charlie! Look Over There!” – charcol drawing

Hello and thanks for reading my blog!

It’s going to be short and sweet today with no progress photos, since I feel I’ve done enough of that type of blog that one can at least discern how I do most of my work. So, I’ll just post the finished piece along with materials used and size. Hope you enjoy.

“Abigail” – carbon drawing

Greetings!  Sorry for the delay in posting new material but I’ve been quite busy lately. Short and sweet here: posting a recent commission of “Abigail” an Oldenburg horse that is trained for dressage. Did some tweaking with the reference photo to bring out the hidden muscularity of this beauty and will simply post the final results first – a few progress photos posted last.  Continue reading “Abigail” – carbon drawing


This is going to be pretty short and straight forward post with the photos showing progress and completion. I drew this using Wolff’s 6B carbon pencil in a manner that is similar to some of my older long drawings. Enjoy.  Continue reading UNTAMED

From Out of The Mist

I’m going to write quite a bit about this drawing because there are lots of things that I want to discuss regarding how this piece came together and many of the things I had to consider. But since I know there are really impatient people, I’ll suggest you scroll down to the bottom of the blog to see the “finished” result.  Continue reading From Out of The Mist
