The Courtship Battle Commences

"16 by 48 inches is not what I would call big. Maybe 16 feet by 48 feet qualifies.  Regardless, it is an excellent composition and scenario!  Now I wonder when you did your last solo exhibition?  Regardless, your waiting time is…"

Doing it for love

Posted on December 20, 2017 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

When I started this latest immersion in drawing and painting, I was looking for my old self that enjoyed it deeply and at times could do it hour after hour.  I had lost that for too long, and was more than ready for the fond memories that came to mind in the early 2000s when I was into illustrating words and verses and not much into images in themselves.  So, I took a formal class or two in watercolor, something I had avoided as much as possible before, and discovered happily that I loved…

Tropical Surrealism

Posted on July 23, 2015 at 12:38pm 0 Comments

Abstractions?

Posted on May 4, 2015 at 8:00am 14 Comments

Thanks RL for your interest in my work. I saw an old still from an old silent movie of the two dancers and liked the composition. I drew the couple in free hand,then with a ruler measured height & width directly below the drawing for the reflection,then masked the entire drawing,when dry, painted the forest and water.The old photo was black and white,so I added my own colors to the couple.Hope this answers your question RL.  Take care,P.J.
