I am doing another home illustration commission. Here is a rough draft version. I am hoping to have this completed in the next couple of days. I will post updates as they are completed.

A new painting/illustration in progress...

This is another piece I have done for my school fundraiser. I have created artwork for over seven years for the event and often it is based on the theme of St Vincent de Paul Church. Since I have used the interior for inspiration in the past I decided to create a new version but with a bit of contemporary look or style. Maybe a bit of cubist influence. Does it represent something more deeper or spiritual?  I am not sure,  but I am always at peace when I create artwork based upon that beautiful and spiritual place .

Possible book illustration

Rough sample idea for a possible upcoming book illustration

A small peek at my studio space...

This is the area where I do most of my work. I don't do a lot of traditional painting on canvas such as the pieces in my January 2014 show.  I love working in the traditional medium- specifically oil pastels. However, it requires more space to work this way. I have really enjoyed working with the digital tools for the reason that it is easy to set up and break down - no cleaning brushes.  I can work for as little or long as time permits.

Site redesign and more links to share

I have been trying to embrace the many social media outlets to show or promote my art work. It will probably undergo additional transformations as I adapt to the various outlets.  You can find me on these sites:

House Art - New Jersey

A new illustration completed this week.  I am always happy to capture the beauty and character of  people's homes.  Plenty of memories are created in these homes and hopefully these illustrations bring out those wonderful times to each family.
