Paleo-Art in Progress: Spinosaurus Part 2

Now I can show the entire process, step-by-step, for how the Spinosaurus painting came to be, from preliminary sketch to the finished artwork. A scan of the painting is at the end. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Finished Cover Art and Paleo Art

The cover art for “Arrivers: Alliance” is now finished and scanned. So here is the result. I also finished another piece of paleo art, depicting two Carnotaurus stalking a Saltasaurus. The foreground flesh-eater is calling for the rest of their pack to help tackle the giant sauropod. Hope you all have a terrific day!

Mist and Moonlight

Here’s the latest of my acrylic paintings, a commission called “Mist and Moonlight.” As always, it’s an acrylic work, and I painted it on an 8 x 10 inch canvas. Thank you very much for stopping by and having a look. I should be returning here soon with some more writing, as well. Hope youContinue reading “Mist and Moonlight”

“Moss-Covered Mansion” – A Mother’s Day Card

I’ve started painting my own cards. This will come in handy around birthdays and Christmas. I’m also going to try selling them, very soon. I’ll keep you posted on that. “Moss-Covered Mansion” is a Mother’s Day card I did for my grandmother. (My mom will get one too, of course!) Painted in acrylics, which were diluted to look likeContinue reading ““Moss-Covered Mansion” – A Mother’s Day Card”

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. I got to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug last week, and all I can say is…wow. Okay, I can say a little more. It’sContinue reading ““Hobbit” review and my new artwork”

Painting Auction: “Colorado Moonlight” for Hope Home

UPDATE: 12/16: The auction is closed, with a total of $25.00 raised for the Hope Home. In the future, I would enjoy putting up other paintings for auction. Thanks for your time. =================================== The Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend is somewhat ironic in America, a time people can be grateful for what they have, yet ravenous forContinue reading “Painting Auction: “Colorado Moonlight” for Hope Home”

Two of My New Paintings

After a four year hiatus, I am finally taking up some painting, in addition to my sketches and writing. Thanks in no small part to Bob “Happy Trees” Ross and James Gurney of Dinotopia fame, I’ve been inspired to take up the brush once more. After some practice I’ll even start selling paintings, but forContinue reading “Two of My New Paintings”
