New Artwork... New Direction!
Here is the finished dragon painting. I just put this piece on my website so I thought I might post it here.
Also, there are a few new illustrations over at the second page of my website portfolio. I actually painted these in the spring of this year so I've been sitting on them for quite awhile.
And this sketch is actually NOT a picture of a giant elf chasing little people. (see the finished piece here) The idea came to me while I was still at the conference. There's a lot of action, and the elements of the painting should really bring the viewer into the image. I'm jazzed about this new direction.
I had planned on taking some time off after the conference, but not as long as these ideas are fresh in my head. I feel like I'm shifting gears here, so I can't wait to get these new paintings finished!
The watercolor above is for a local parish priest who is a close friend of mine. I finished this painting last night, and it will be used in a brochure handed out at the dedication of the church in November.
And this is one of fourteen absolutely gorgeous stained glass windows that were restored for the church. I can't get over the beauty of these windows. The photo does not do it justice.
