The Creation Series

the earth was a formless void,

and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters.

Then God said, "Let there be light".

And God saw that the light was good, and God separated the light from the darkness.

And there was evening,

and there was morning,
the first day.

 "Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters."

"Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear."

WWII Veteran Portrait Project

Most of my time these days is spent drawing or interviewing World War II veterans.  I have completed over 150 so far and the complete collection will be exhibited at the Morris Graves Museum of Art this coming August.  In addition to the portraits and exhibit, there will be a catalog and prints available.

Visit my other blog: to see recent drawings.  I am also launching a dedicated Facebook Page Faces of American Heroes.  Please  Like the page for news on the project and series.  I'll be posting new drawings and interviews weekly.
