About Me

My photo
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.

NAVY

NAVY
Mixed Media Drawing on 5" x 8.5" Antique Dictionary

I have been asked to create a series of dictionary drawings that feature different branches of our armed forces.  I decided the best way to honor the military is to create drawings of their respect seals and emblems.

To start this series I wanted to begin with the one that is closest to my own family.  I have two brother-in-laws who were in the navy.  For this drawing I didn't take too many artistic liberties because the images used are very symbolic and well defined.  


Here is a picture of my family on a naval ship taken a number of years ago.  Gary, Pop and Jim all had a pretty special day together on board while both of my brother-in-laws were on active duty.  I'm very proud of their service.
