I was getting ready to blog about Christmas and then I remembered we didn't have a family photo from the day so I took this sketch I did and painted it and voila. Close enough.

I was actually planning on doing this at some point but then I was tagged on Instagram so that sealed the deal! Yay for art memes and harmless bandwagons. So, 👋 everyone.
And I can't believe I neglected apostrophe abuse on the left side... I'll just make myself feel better by lumping that in with bad writing.
J has done these in the past, maybe she can be persuaded to post one.

A pretty varied set for this month.
I was a little loose with my definition of figure drawings this time around, which was fun for a change.

Inspired by the whimsical, ethereal work of the recently departed James C. Christensen, a morning sketch turned painting attempt with a so-so acrylic brush tool effect thing. I was sorry to hear about his passing, he was one of my favorite artists from my formative years.

A few years ago I did a series of sketches based on the source material for Disney's animated movies and I'm finally making good on my plan to paint them. This project will last for most of the year, and pieces probably will be posted in batches, but I did want to kick things off by sharing the one that started them all.

Over Christmas I did some paintings based on a few recent entries in my digital sketchbook, so here they are:
|If our cat were a human he would obviously be a samurai|
|Hipster Clark Kent would totally wear an S-shirt because #irony|
|I wanted to paint a pretty lady so Italian model it is.|
