About Me

Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

AP Warm-Up Exercise

At the beginning of each school year, I give my advanced students a series of "Warm-Up" exercises to dust off their brains and fingers.  This year I hauled a tub of tarnished silverware I collected from my mother's estate and started my class off with a photo realistic drawing exercise.  This is my example/demo piece.

I love to draw but rarely do much black and white, graphite pencil work to show or sell.  Like so many demonstration pieces, this 9" x 12" piece may never be finished but used for teaching specific techniques.
