Free Dino Art Lessons for Kids!

I have been blessed with the chance to lead free art lessons at events held by the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center. And now I can share some of the lessons I started making. These are mainly for the little artists in your family, but feel free to try one yourself, if you want. HereContinue reading “Free Dino Art Lessons for Kids!”

Kronosaurus and Plesiosaur

I have finished another paleoart painting. This one depicts the giant marine reptile Kronosaurus, catching a Plesiosaur. At the moment, I am continuing with my writing, and quite looking forward to presenting artwork at the Symposium for the Western Interior Paleontological Society, in March. They invited me to come set up a table in March,Continue reading “Kronosaurus and Plesiosaur”

Guess Who’s Coming to Christmas Dinner

Here is a commission I finished for a friend last night. Tyrannosaurus rex, getting ready to celebrate Christmas. Contrary to popular opinion, T. rex most likely didn’t have vision-based movement. He would probably have seen you still or moving. So, in other words: He sees you when you’re sleeping He knows when you’re awake YouContinue reading “Guess Who’s Coming to Christmas Dinner”

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!

Getting Published in Prehistoric Times, New Art Show

It’s been a busy couple of months with a new job, but there’s some good news. I have been re-invited back to the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center to sell artwork at their arts and crafts fair. The fair is planned for July 11th, and I’ll be working on more artwork. I’m also happy toContinue reading “Getting Published in Prehistoric Times, New Art Show”

Is it Okay to Keep Scaly Raptors in Jurassic World?

It’s a Velociraptor. With feathers. I regret nothing. There’s a huge difference between caring about accuracy (that’s good), and whining about it with an overpowering sense of entitlement (that’s bad) to see feathered dinosaurs in a movie series where the already-cloned Velociraptors have a few differences in color, but lack any plumage. I tried treating theContinue reading “Is it Okay to Keep Scaly Raptors in Jurassic World?”

I Now Have an Etsy Shop

As of today, I have opened up a shop on the shopping website Etsy. This would be a great chance to sell some of my dinosaur and landscape paintings, and perhaps other items later on. Only 5 items are there right now, but more shall be added as time goes on. Since I just haveContinue reading “I Now Have an Etsy Shop”

More Art, Plans for the Blog, Cameroon Voyage

I’ve been painting a good deal more than I have been writing, to my regret. But the writing is coming back to me, thanks to some writers groups I have been a part of or leading for years. The blog is going to have more musings, sharings, rants, and oddjob add-ons in general. A littleContinue reading “More Art, Plans for the Blog, Cameroon Voyage”

New Paintings, and I Got Interviewed!

Good morning everyone! I have a couple of new acrylic paintings to share. Sorry I haven’t gotten much writing done, but that’s changing this afternoon, God willing. There’s stories to be finished in them there hills. In other news, I got interviewed about my artwork by the New Falcon Herald, a local newspaper. The articleContinue reading “New Paintings, and I Got Interviewed!”

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…”
