Cypress Reflection

Cypress Reflection

I have really enjoyed doing these little tree sketches. I have some more I would like to draw but I am getting busy and haven't had time to sketch them.

Spring is my second busiest season and it is now picking up. I will post more soon when I have them to show.

Works in progress

I have been working on these two drawings for the past week and they are intended for a group show coming up in April.
The photos were taken by my grandmother who was an avid photographer. These are from the Piedmont Interstate Fair sometime in the 50's or early 60's. She gave me these photos when she was still alive and I have had them tucked away for over 16 years. I am glad I stumbled upon them because they made such great working material.

California Cypress


Here is the California Cypress that I drew yesterday. It has been so long since I was posting on a regular basis, I just forgot to do it yesterday.

"Southern Cypress"
7 1/2 x 22 inches

I have been asked by so many friends and followers, "what happened to the paintings-a-day?" so I decided to try to do some sketches as often as I can. I have a very hectic work load at this time with three commissions in process and one just completed and four that need to be photographed. My work load is what caused my posts to slow down to a trickle and then to a stop. However, the quick sketches at the end of my day has been very relaxing and enjoyable.

I love southern cypress trees and decided I would attempt a few. Here is my first one. I hope to have more in a few days.
