The photo here doesn't quite capture the depth of the shadows in this painting, it was a hard one to capture and trying to adjust all the settings took a while. This is a local cow in one of the fields next to the surf. I've been avoiding black cows since they are so hard to get right. It was raining pretty good on the island on this day. The rain was coming from offshore and if you can look closely you can decipher which way the beach would be.

September is Portrait Month!!




8x8 Oil on Panel

September is Portrait Month!!

To kick off September I will be doing Portraits for a super price of $45(for 8x8's). I'm only doing it for the month of September for this price. The original price for portrait commissions is $150 for 8x8's so this is an incredible deal. 

Make it Fun!! 

Have a cool hat to wear, baseball cap, bunny hat, cowboy hat, colorful ribbons, bonnet, earrings, funky sunglasses, 50's, 60's, 70's hair style etc, college photo's, have fun just accessorize! Posing for a pose? How about a sleeping pose, 3/4 pose, sunlit, dim light, straight on pose, profile, gesture poses, laughter, smiling, etc. Have fun with it.  

If you wanted a portrait done who would it be?

Wouldn't it be great to have a custom painted oil painting of a family member to hang on your wall in your living room, bed room, or even your office at work. How about as a gift for birthday, retirement, wedding gift, or an anniversary present.

Your photo's don't have to be formal, and could be any photo that would represent a day in the life of the person. Some Examples could be vacation photo's, son/daughter outside playing, husband/wife, girlfriend/boyfriend, candid photo's, dressed up, or the above example, out for a day fishing. 

These portraits will be in an abstract realist style like the above so any photo ref. you have could turn into an awesome portrait. These portraits will be painted on 8x8 oil on panel. Shipping is not included and will be approx. $10 depending on your location. 

Send me your photo(s) and your shipping address using my email. My email is off to the right of the webpage. I'll send you an invoice through Paypal to make payment. Credit cards are also accepted through Paypal. Money orders are also accepted.

My Scrub plane. It was a smoothing plane but converted it to a scrub plane so i can really hog off some wood 'lickity split'. It's seem some use for sure. The iron is a Spear and Jackson Iron that I reground into a concave, slightly rounded edge. When you take shavings from your stock it more or less scoops it out.This one is about 6" long and weighs about 3lbs I guess.

A work in progress? Galveston has it's fair share of sailboats. This just happened to be one in limbo. Amazin Grace is the name of this sailboat. We used to have an O'day 22' sloop rigged sailboat that didn't have a trailer in was docked at Clearlake in one of the Marinas. It needed some repairs so we found a nice boat trailer that was for a flat bottom boat and welded some supports to brace the boat. It was quite an ordeal to geat it all organized since we had to lift the boat with a crane and then scrape the underside before setting her down on the supports.

One of the many jetties on Galveston Island, the 47th jetty. Sometimes you can see corks floating around that fisherman have lost, tangled into the rocks below. When the tide rolls in and the water is still clear you can see them swishing around as the waves pass by.
