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.

“The Younger Brother (Two)”

I just completed this drawing of William Adolphe Bourguereau’s oil painting “The Younger Brother (two)”, rendered in charcoal and graphite on Stonehenge Aqua water-color paper. This piece was drawn in order to test the quality of this paper for drawing and I’ll be giving a review of that as well.  Continue reading “The Younger Brother (Two)”


This is the last in a three-part series paying tribute to W. A. Bouguereau. The Young Shepherdess is my attempt at capturing Bouguereau’s realistic attributes that he so intimately places within each of his paintings, only I utilized charcoal and some carbon instead of oils.  Continue reading THE YOUNG SHEPHERDESS – Part III

PASTOURELLE – tribute to Bouguereau
