The Mood

The Mood

The Mood Digital painting This is my first digital painting. Perhaps not so appropriate to include in an oil painting gallery, but as it is the only one of its kind so far, so be it. This effort came out of a period of illness and personal difficulty, and, lacking the energy to approach the easel,See more

A Possible Traveller

A Possible Traveller

These are a few test renders of a human sculpture I’ve been working on, and rigging for animation. I’m not sure whether or not I will use her in any of the final animation videos. The concept is for her to be textured with the same neutral masonry materials with which the Pentascope box isSee more

New breaking renders

Norma Fredericka Hollmeyer Conté on toned paper This is perhaps the earliest piece on the website. My beloved grandmother was 96 when she passed in 1985. I was moved to draw a portrait of her in her youth, from a tiny, old photograph. It was my way of spending some time with her, getting toSee more
