"wardrobe malfunction" this is the acrylic version of the graphite drawing. i have been enjoying graphite so much lately that i decided to make this version instead of adding more color to the original drawing.

"pritzker at night" new acrylic painting 10 x 8 inches. i am still in love with small format painting. if i don't like it, i dont have to worry about wasting art supplies.

"working heart" graphite and pen. this was the original version of the other ❤ painted version "lighthearted" that ended being very different from the sketch. .

"lighthearted" this design started as a graphite drawing in my small sketchbook and decided to also make an acrylic colorful version. i always find excuses to use primary colors.

I tried to sketch a person waiting for the bus but he left so soon and didnt have time to get any details. had to finish it without reference.

"on duty" my cat takes very seriously his job of protecting the house against intruders. you never know when a bird or a fly will show up.
