Frontin #4

Down in Rockland near the grain silos, this Coast Guard ship is having some work done on it. This a 10"x22" watercolor but I brought it into Artrage when I got back to repair a mistake I made with drawing the changes in the tide while I was painting. So it's kind of a hybrid watercolor/digital sketch.

Gary Alan Isakov

A few months ago I discovered a great singer-songwriter - Gary Alan Isakov. This past weekend Valerie and I drove down to see him perform at One Longfellow Square in Portland. I had a few minutes before the show started to sketch the stage, then finished it up at lunch the other day. I think I used up all my black paint!

Tracy Martin

Speaking before the new Congressional Caucus on Black Men and Boys, Tracy Martin said he wouldn't 'let this verdict sum up who Trayvon was.' Martin called his son 'my hero' and vowed to never give up the fight, not only for Trayvon, but also 'for so many other young black and brown boys.'

Workshop Paintings - Day 1

I'm taking a couple of watercolor workshops this Summer. The first is with Joseph Zbukcik, which I didn't know I was taking until Saturday. First day of painting and I learned a lot. He did a demo in the morning and we copied that approach and subject and we did the same thing in the afternoon.
