SHE WILL BE A WOMAN SOON

This is a beautiful young lady that is growing up fast, they all do that never stay small for very long. That is God's plan to be born, loved, trained, and grow up hopefully with the moral principals taught to her by her loving family. I am personally proud of this young lady because her grandmother, my dear friend, has shared her grandchildren with me ever since the youngest boy, Tanner was born. 

We all have complex moments in our lives but I believe this young lady will make her family proud. This an 18 x 18 graphite, graphite powder, drawing on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. Permission granted by ZAP Photography.


I hope each enjoy and relate to this beautiful young lady. Have a blessed day.
Picture is sold.

I hope you enjoy going back memory lane with this. Have a blessed day. 



PEEK A BOO

It is that time of the year that all the trees are turning all sorts of beautiful colors. With permission from my daughter Tisha Clinkenbeard I painted a picture of their cat Blue Eyes playing in a pile of fall leaves. This is 16 x 20 on Tan Mitenes board with colored pencil.


I do so hope you enjoy the beauty in the simple things that God has given us to enjoy. To all have a blessed day.

CORKS AND CROWNS


This is the last of a series of paintings I did of friends and myself while we vacationed in Martha's Vineyard together. For five years we would gather to spend a week at "the cabin" that was in the family of one of the ladies. We came from Florida, North Carolina, California, and Texas so it was quite a combination!

We had lots of fun, solved the worlds problems, and watched the World Trade Centers come crashing down on a black and white TV which changed everyone's world in the United States of America forever.

This is 5" x 7" on Stonehenge paper, Polychromo, Pablo pencils. My reference.

SON HOLD MY HAND

Needless to say the father was very surprised and thankful! Makes our work all the more rewarding!

IT IS GOING TO BE OKAY MOTHER


This is a piece I worked on a few years ago using Graphite and white Conte, size is 8"x 10" on Tan Matte Board. I found the subject very moving so I tried free hand drawing this. The work was before my Essential Tremor became bad enough to have Deep Brain Stimulation surgery. I hope you enjoy my work and make your own story.
