Secret Santa Present

This is a watercolor I painted as a gift for a fellow artist on, as part of our Secret Santa gift exchange. This year I got to organize it! I hope I get to next year, it's always exciting to see what people get. You can see more of the gifts on the forums here:

Images start on page 6, so just click there. Also, I'm working on a family portrait, so expect another update soon.

So here's what I've been up to this summer. This first piece was a wedding present, it's of the High Tatras mountains here in Slovakia.

Here's a portrait of my father-in-law, drawn from life.

This watercolor is from a photo by Andre Jaf.

New Watercolor

Little still life object. I want to start a series of these too.

New Item For Sale

This is an oil pastel of the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, just outside Tucson. I drew it from life in July, 2006, while traveling with my wife across America. Work is framed with non-reflective glass and available in the shop. It'll be bubblewrapped of course, for safety, along with a cover to protect the glass.

Here are two oil pastels I've added to my shop. They're both from life, drawn at Slovak Paradise, National Park, last September. This was when I'd take my son Andrew to a playground nearby, just before the school year got into full swing. And it was still nice out.
