Selling Paintings at the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center

This is first post I have written in a very long time, I’ll admit. I have some good news. Not just good. Ecstatic. A family member and I went up to the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park, CO this weekend. I took along a couple of paintings to show them, just inContinue reading “Selling Paintings at the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center”

Artwork: Cabins and Trees

These are two new paintings, done for a good friend who’s moving away and wanted a reminder of Colorado. Both are, as always, done with acrylic paint. I hope you enjoy them. [Copyright, of course, belongs to me.]  

New Painting, New Articles

Good evening, everyone. Here’s another one of the paintings I’ve done recently. It was auctioned off by the Pikes Peak Writers Conference last week. I wasn’t able to attend the conference itself due to insufficient finances, but learned a lot from a “pre-conference workshop” the day before. Especially about query letters, and how painfully uninformed IContinue reading “New Painting, New Articles”

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!”

Climb

Another weekend, another painting done. “Climb.” Acrylics on watercolor paper, 4 x 6 inches. The two figures at bottom right are Kedil Ahmlen (left) and Sathra Wolfglen (right), two characters from my books. I might find a place to put this scene. The slope climbed up and up, bordered by steep ridges that protruded likeContinue reading “Climb”

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”

Today through Wednesday, the first two installments, “Escaping” and “Refugee,” are free, and the new one is just $0.99. It took a while to writeContinue reading ““Salt Flats” is Out!

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”

Nature in Colorado

Well, it’s finally time to return to the things worth paying attention to. God’s creation is absolutely wonderful, and Colorado has plenty of it to offer. As terrible as the floods and fires have been, Colorado is not only home to hell and high water. There is still much beauty and fascination to be had atContinue reading “Nature in Colorado”

Apocalypse Springs: A Zombie Novel With A Twist

Lots of writers and artists like using Kickstarter as a platform to get people excited and spread the word about their project, and to fund it financially. And now my longtime friend and fellow writer Rob Killam has begun a new Kickstarter project, a zombie novel unlike any I’ve ever heard of. The title: Apocalypse Springs:Continue reading “Apocalypse Springs: A Zombie Novel With A Twist”
