Gourds

Still life, “fruit in the bowl,” painting has always been a type of painting I could care less about, but I thought I should paint some, just as a study, so I chose some rather cool-looking gourds. I’m not really sure what to think of it, whether or not it looks acceptable, but here it […]

A Rather Large Painting

I was asked if I would be able to paint a mural for my church’s Vacation Bible School.  The theme was Medieval, and I had to come up with something along those lines.  A castle was the obvious choice for the mural, but I didn’t want it to be one of those cheap, whimsical, and […]

The Mausoleum

When my siblings and I were younger, we had the chance to go to work with dad on special days.  We would excitedly get up at 5am to drive down to Baltimore to spend the rest of the day in a cemetery.  The cemetery wasn’t just any burial ground, it was Greenmount.  Just about the […]
