Reclining Cat Study 10" x 14"
Watercolor on Arches
Cats are so languorous as they recline about the house. This little study in watercolor is a study in violets, lavendars and blues.

Praying Man 8" x 14"
Colored Pencil on colored paper
I am moved deeply by images of people praying - reaching out to God - seeking conscious contact with the One that speaks to their heart.

Cellist - 8" x 10" Pencil drawing on paper
This is a little quick sketch I did of a man playing the cello. My father played the cello and I remember listening to him play when I was a child. I love the peaceful mellow sound of a cello.
Red Stripe 10" x 14"
Charcoal and Conte Crayon on Paper
Here is another one of my drawings - this time incorporating charcoal and conte crayon. I tried to capture the idea of a young man who is a bit revolutionary in character, but deep in thought as he is reading.

Seated Nude 2
10" x 16"
Conte Crayon on Paper

Here is another nude drawing of the same model. Although the pose is similar, the drawing is more bold and the woman looks less timid. Both of these drawings are available as prints at Fine Art America. See link.
Seated Nude
16"x 20"
Conte Crayon on Paper.

This is one of many nude drawings that I have done over the years - drawing in a studio with a live model. I tried to create a mood as well as render the figure in a realistic manner.
