’68 Charger Painting

I am critical of this in many ways, but thought I'd post it for entertainment's sake.  Obviously I'm not a realist artist.  I've self-taught myself over the years and go through phases where I can't paint enough.  I first learned to tole paint from instruction books in my 20's.  That evolved over the years to… Continue reading ’68 Charger Painting

Then divorce happened and I haven't been able to paint as much due to working full time. It's been about 12 years since divorce & my… Continue reading In Progress: Rooster Impressionism in Oil Pastel
