Here's my entry for the Minnesota Duck Stamp; a pair of Ruddy Ducks. They aren't very good at releasing information so you know who won and all that, but I did figure it out eventually and know I didn't get first, second, third, or fourth. Otherwise, I don't know where I landed (I wish they had some sort of list). Beware of the horrible quality of this thing! It was (again) a very stubborn painting to photograph correctly. Once I get it back, hopefully I'll be able to get a much better image (even with Photoshop help, it still isn't even good). I do actually like how this one came out, however, and for once, didn't agree with the judges opinion on the first place painting. :/

Oil on masonite. 9" X 6 1/2". Refs many thanks to Leslie from WetCanvas. :)

EDIT: I actually just received this piece back today and found out that I had made it to the second round (a first for me).

Another drawing I've been working on this past few weeks in between paintings and other work. For me, anyway, it's difficult to separate buffalos and dust--they always look so nice together! So I figured I'd take that idea to the extreme and really make a dusty environment. This is depicting the buffalo after he has just shaken off the last of the dust from a good roll.

Graphite on 14" X 11" smooth bristol. A combination of my own refs and some from the RIL on WetCanvas.

Here's my Michigan Duck Stamp painting for this year! The first of three duck stamps total this year. The judging was yesterday and I didn't place (as I expected). Richard Clifton won with his lovely painting. However, I did make it through to the second round (a first for me in this particular contest), but that's where it stopped. I guess they didn't like the fact that the bg was so dark--something to note for future contests. :) Anyways, enjoy!

This is about 9 3/4" X 7" acrylic on masonite. Also my first piece using my airbrush. ;) Refs thanks to Lesley off of WetCanvas.

For Sale: Matted with a white mat. Note me if interested.

I got my first set of ampersand scratchboards and could't wait to use it even though I was totally exhausted after a horrible day at work.

Completed it in an hour. This is a smaller sized one - 5x7 inches.

Forgot where I got the reference picture from, but it is definitely not mine.

This has been a long time coming but finally I got around to completing this piece.
I originally presented this piece over a year ago and was pleased at first with the result, however as time has gone by and my artistic ability has (hopefully) improved, I was always wanting to draw this subject again.
So here it is .... enjoy.
