Pokey 2 is a cute kitty that is very not very shy and always you are wondering what is he thinking.  Oh by the way don’t’ sneak up on him.  Pokey was drawn with General’s soft Carbon Pencil on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper.

Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are God. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are God. ~Christopher Hitchens

Working on a kitten for an event for a group based out of Akron called Paws and Prayers Animal Rescue.  This needs a lot of work everything is off a bit but thought I would post it so you can see the progress.  Check back in a couple of days to see the finished image

This is the first of my figure series.   Dancing in the Hay is a girl that is dancing on top of a pile of hay.  Learning to do figures abstractly to more realistic figures is my goal.

This is pokey named after my son’s cat.  I love cats and dogs but not raccoons, just got rid of one that was living in our attic and moved to the lover section of the house.  So I painted this kitty for a DPW challenge and hope that it would bring me luck in capturing the varmint.

Everything I know I learned from my cat: When you’re hungry, eat. When you’re tired, nap in a sunbeam. When you go to the vet’s, pee on your owner. - Gary Smith

Bid on this at DPW

“There is a tiny yellow daffodil, The butterfly can see it from afar, Although one summer evening’s dew could fill Its little cup twice over, ere the star Had called the lazy shepherd to his fold, And be no prodigal.” Oscar Wilde 

This was a learning experience of technique, to replicate the see thru petals on the right.  This was painted with mars black and titanium white.  Gallery Wrapped with painting continued on the sides.

From a challenge Paint and Draw together.  I love Kiwi but hate the fuzz.  If you are coming from Paint and Draw together or Facebook I replaced this image with a better photo.

Kiwifruits are named after a bird, native of New Zealand,

This image is from the Volvo Graveyard in Ohio.  I love Volvos and I thought this would make a great image.  This is done in oils and I am using White Titanium, French ultramarine, Yellow Ochre, Permanent Alizar in Crimson, and ivory black.  I would say that I feel I am starting to get the hang of the oils especially the blending.

Back then the cars had a trap door that we could pull open with a chain to check our tire wear.  ~Tim Flock

Training Wheels – found this picture of my son when he was younger.  I think there are four phases you have to get use to when raising children, they learn to ride the bike; next driving the car; then they are off to college and then on with their lives.  I don’t like thinking about it.

You can only be young once. But you can always be immature. ~Dave Berry

Working on my figurative painting.  Think I need a boot camp on this so bear with me.      This is the second hardboard I am using.  Still not too sure how much I like it.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

Ok tried to do a painterly picture but painted over it.  This is my second attempt.  I didn’t really stick to it here so ignore the color just trying to get the technique now.  I am too much into the details, not as easy as it seems.  Will try this again.
