DS card Art

I do a lot of Dragon Storm card art and I use the work as an opportunity to try out new styles and techniques. Not every experiment turns out as well as I would like; over time, however, I find I'm developing some skill using these new techniques. Below is a simple piece called Jikadell Serpent that came out quite nicely. I created it using a digital paint technique that I've been practicing for some time. I'm particularly happy with the vibrant colors I can achieve using this method and I think this piece is a good example of that.

I recently received a note from Ed Beard Jr. asking me to check out a Youtube video made by his daughter, the singer Destini Hope Beard. I was very impressed by her singing voice and her performances. I suggest that everyone go have a listen to her at the link below. You'll be glad you did.

Arba Pic

Hi people. I'm late. January temps are freezing me up! Today there is going to be something of a thaw. I am going to do several posts, starting with this one.

My sister Margaret helps raise prize winning Romney sheep on her home farm. I am working on a piece for her. She plans to enter it in a contest to choose the logo for ARBA--the American Rommey Breeders' Association. Win or lose it has been fun to do. If you want to know more about Margaret, Romney sheep and llamas (yes, llamas!) click on the Pitchfork Farms link below.

Photos of Rome

Good morning all. I hope everyone had happy holidays, good company and good food! I am returning to work, which means you will see a picture post later this week. For now, I want to share some cool photos taken by my Cousin Joe during his recent trip to Rome. Click here to go to his Flicker page. Enjoy!
