It has been quite a while since I posted any new artwork. I have been working on some new coin designs for the U.S. Mint, and that takes top priority for me. These 2 drawings were completed under the guidance of the Ani Academy, and they are now at the Oxford Gallery in Rochester, NY. The exhibit is called "Doubles and Doppelgangers". 
Now, I am working on some watercolor paintings for a few future shows. Always working!

Here are a few portraits from the last several months. The charcoal drawings were done at the Ani Academy, and is usually a 3 hour pose. The pencil and color pencil drawings were done with my drawing group, which is usually 1.5-2 hours. After 9 years of weekly drawing group, I am getting pretty fast and accurate!

Well, I am not a fan of the snow and cold, but it DOES look very pretty, and it is fun to paint.
