The Car - charcoal

charcoal, 2017
available, 8"x11"

      It's that time of year again. Though I'm not a big Steven King fan, per se, I did like a couple of his movies. Christine, of course, is just another story of a high school outsider finding or being given some form of empowerment. In this case, our protagonist finds a presumably possessed car that killed two people even before it rolled out of the factory. The best part of Christine, frankly, is that it can repair and restore itself back to showroom new. What gearhead wouldn't want a car like that?

Herbie - watercolor

watercolor, 2017
available, 9"x12"

      I thought I'd try this portrait of Herbie Hancock from an old black-and-white photo. It worked pretty well, but I still might try it larger and maybe a little looser.

Beach Baby - watercolor

watercolor, 2017
nfs, 11"x15"

      My first great-niece. I shot a few photos of her on a chance meeting between my wife and I and my nephew and his young family at a popular NC beach. Neither of us knew the other was there until they posted something to Instagram. A couple weeks later, they've got a portrait of their little beach baby. Honestly, this might be one of my best.

Backyard DeVille - watercolor

watercolor, 2017
available, 11"x17"

      A Sedan DeVille that's seen better days. I'm very happy with this one in all it's loose realism.
