This portrait is of my childhood friend Kaitlin's late dog. Kaitlin has welcomed many senior dogs into her home, including Ginger shown here. I was happy to bring Ginger's smile back to life through this mini pet portrait. When creating this 5"x 7" acrylic painting, I used a limited palette and relied heavily on dry brushing to build Ginger's form.

Sometimes after my mother passed suddenly from lung cancer I wanted to draw a picture of her to get as a tattoo. While I never actually got this tattooed I keep the picture in a frame to remind me of her. The original photo reference of my mom has been lost since. My mother was a high school English teacher at Newfane High School.

With each of this style drawing, I try to add some things I've learned from the previous ones. Different designs or "chains" as I call them and content within the circles or squares. I first do the drawing in black ink and add the color later. Sometimes they take longer than expected. I have to be careful not to rush it or just use fillers when nearing completing the drawing part. Colors are chosen through some personal choice and some the color wheel. I have just finished my 12th in this seri

I started drawing smaller B & W pieces and moved onto color with larger pieces of paper. I do the drawing first and then add the color afterwards. They take a long time but it is very meditative. I think I have about 12 similar and finished pieces as of yet.

As a amateur Painter, I started this painting with just a plain country side scene with some distant mountains. But then I got creative and added a Tuscany Villa. I kept at it , as my creativity kicked in and I began adding characters from the 1600's. My addition of Characters became a real challenge, as I had few references to Tuscany residents of the 16th century. Then I began adding the activities , such as a Monk bring in the wine, and the artist, There are two workers putting a cor
