Hoi Polloi

"Hoi Polloi". Pencil crayon (or coloured pencil ... or colored pencil if you're American) on paper. Similar to the skulls from the sketchbook but not as many secret surprises. Just one, really. One of the blobs is in the process of splitting. Fun times.

A Pack O Lips???

The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse. This is the popular interpretation as opposed to the classical (Wiki it, lazybones!)

Doh! Ray? Me?

The late, great Ray Charles. Pen, brush & ink. Not bad, eh?

BBW in B&W

Here's a nice one. Beautiful model, interesting pose ... what's not to like, I asks ya??? OK, so it's Mandy Blake from the internet ... thank you Google image search!

Another N-Alien The Coffin ... puns getting progressively worse!!!!

Another sketch, this time from "Alien". Used the camera for this one ... the scanner didn't seem to like it.

Bog - Art

Just a quick sketch but I think it came out nice. Here's looking at ME, Kid!

Oil's Welll That Ends Well (sigh)

Courtney & I are taking an oil painting class together & our first project was in black & white. Here's mine. Classic Trek. Classic Nerd.

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Here's a new acrylic painting. First in a series? Only time will tell.

Wood He or Wooden He?

Here are a couple of carvings I did last year (before my notoriously weak wrists begged me to stop). Yes, yes. Nice bum.

Sketchbook Stuff Part 2

Just some recent stuff from the sketchbook ... just so you don't think I'm doing NOTHING these days!

Notre Dame de Basilisk-a

Here's the Notre Dame church in Quebec City. Courtney & I went for the Paul McCartney show. It was fun. Anyhow, another vacation-inspired painting. Enjoy!

Sketchbook Fun!

Here's a little fun thing from my sketchbook. Yes, sometimes I do something OTHER than paint. There are a few fun things in the drawing: Hitler, the letter Q, Waldo, etc. Wait, that is not to say that Hitler is fun, but it's a cartoon Hitler skull and it might be fun to look for it. Oh never mind. Hitler was awful and I should never have drawn him even in skull form. Oh please forgive me, everybody!

Crackin' Skulls!

Just a couple of colourful skulls. You've probably seen enough of the "Saran Wrap Effect" for awhile, so I'll lay off.

X-1? And no Wolverine???

The Bell X-1. Breakin' the barrier! Yeah!!!

Cosmo? Not!

A quick one of Yuri Gagarin, first man in space.

To Bee or not to Bee ... that is the ... daisy?

A bumblebee and a daisy. Whoever thought of such a thing?

That's good bass!

Yup. Largemouth bass. *makes fishy mouth* Given to Chris & Hilary as a little gift. How sweet am I???

Another piece of "genuine art". Does it speak to the ultimate fate of the poor cow? Does it equate the corporate product to the employee? Is it just a simple swipe at an easy target? Only my hairdresser knows for sure! Painted for Fiona & Mike.

Beautiful production but the castle need more rehersal.

This is the final painting for the girls in Halifax. I hope they like them!

Magic? Wanderful!

I'm just going to go ahead and assume that these will wind up in the girls' room.

Red Rose ... only in Canada you say? Pity.

Here's painting number two for my nieces in Halifax. I believe that the common "red" rose grows in nations other than Canada. I could be mistaken.

Two Paintings Are Better Than One

I have decided to donate two, count 'em, two paintings for Camp Day. I did this nice one of tulips from our front yard. Courtney will hate me for giving this one away but it's for a good (enough) cause!

Painting for Tim Horton's Camp Day?

I offered to do a painting to be raffled off for "Camp Day" at Timmie's. This is my second attempt at a seagull. Is it good enough for charity? I'll have to stew on it a bit. Kind of pretty, anyhow.

The Princely Frog

Here is the first in a planned series of paintings for my nieces & nephew in NS. Yes, it's "The Frog Prince". More watercolour.

Obligatory Peggy's Cove Painting

We took a trip to Halifax last weekend. I feel that, as a Canadian painter, I am obliged to render my vision of Peggy's Cove. Watercolour inked with a brush.

Lord of Darthness

Everybody's favourite dark lord. This one looked so great BEFORE the final step. Sometimes you gotta resist the urge to do more to a piece. Still, it looks like him, doesn't it?

Sharking the Jump

One more for today. We practiced painting crashing waves in my last class. It's pretty tricky to get right. Close enough. Donated to Courtney's Boss, Wayne. She'll NEVER get fired, now!

Chimps Gotta Stay Connected!

Here's a recent one. It's pretty rare in that it actually "says something". Can you figure it out, boys and girls? (watercolour on paper)
