A collection of paintings, drawings and non sequiturs. Thanks for looking!

Here are a couple head studies from this week's classes.
Johnny, 18x24 graphite on newsprint (I definitely would not recommended newsprint for drawings like this. It does NOT hold its form very well. Stick to newsprint if doing quick gesture drawings, otherwise it's really only good for the news).
Anna, graphite on paper, 11x14.(the model's less-than-pleased attitude is not exaggerated).
I am an artist living and working in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Recently, the focus of my artistic efforts has been on sharpening the tools of observation - on learning to really see the world around me, and to use painting and drawing to capture these visions. The tension between darkness and light is usually a major theme in the work.
Methods and philosophies of the Old Masters have always been enticing, and I am determined to reach towards their impossible standards.
The blogosphere has been an unending source of inspiration and creative fuel for me, and I hope that my own blog's stumbling and wondering can add to the cyber-collective of images and journeys.
