Paintings: Dinosaur Sunsets

There’s a series of paintings I’ve started to create, and would like to make more of. “Dinosaur Sunsets” has four works done so far, and there seems to be a lot of excitement about them. So as long as I can find dinosaurs with nice silhouettes, I’ll keep making them and hopefully selling them toContinue reading “Paintings: Dinosaur Sunsets”

If Bob Ross Visited Jurassic Park…

The result might look something like this. “Evening Drink,” acrylic on black mat board, 8 x 10 inches. Obviously I don’t mean I can paint half as good as Ross. That would take several lifetimes and a lot more patience. It’s just the kind of style he often did in his paintings, with a dilutedContinue reading “If Bob Ross Visited Jurassic Park…”

“Hobbit” review and my new artwork

Greetings, everyone! The last couple of months have been more hectic than an ant colony that just found a spilled can of Mountain Dew, but things are going pretty well.

Two of My New Paintings

After a four year hiatus, I am finally taking up some painting, in addition to my sketches and writing.

After some practice I’ll even start selling paintings, but forContinue reading “Two of My New Paintings”

Writing from the Ashes

One of the favorite motifs of fiction is resurrection. Characters redeem themselves (or try to), the past catches up for better or worse, and there are phoenixes everywhere ascending from ashes. My own book is called Revived. History itself is given a legacy of resurrection, thanks to Christ rising from His grave. Resurrection was also theContinue reading “Writing from the Ashes”
