Sun Flower Pencil Study

"Sun Flower Bud"
Pencil Drawing on 80lb paper 11" by 14"
When hurricane Ike hit I had bird seed stored outside in a storage container. The container was turned over and bird seed was spread all over the back yard. The sunflowers started to sprout soon after. I made several studies of these "Ike" sun flowers.

Must Have Coffee ( Water Color)

"Must have Coffee"

Water Color on 140lb. cold press paper 11" by 15"

A water color study of coffee grinder, and French Press. I finished this in November but I am just getting around to posting my work. I have a lot to learn on how to paint glass and the copper of the French press was also an interesting problem. I have a lot of study and work ahead of me in learning how to illustrate different textures.
