This Redhead loves to peck at the cedar siding on our house. In doing so, he became the prime nemesis of my husband. Even though the genesis says he is an ordinary woodpecker, he is far from being ordinary. He is endowed with a superpower, the ability to hone in to wherever in the house hubby is seated and will proceed to start pecking at that spot.
The sprint to the door coupled with grabbing anything that could be thrown is achieved in record time. But alas, the redhead escapes to live on for another round of this homeowner-bird rivalry.

Nature & Nostalgia – those are the subjects that I am, pardon the pun, drawn to.
I am a hyper-realistic artist and the “devil is in the details” – the more details, the better.
The medium of colored pencil affords me the ability to hone in on that aspect. Nature has so many nuances to them that detail is imperative to capture the essence of a living being, whether it is flower or animal. Nostalgia also lends its self to detail. The more detail, the more the image will come alive for the viewer – evoking their own memories attached to that particular object in the drawing.
After choosing what I will draw, I lightly sketch out an outline of my subject. I start by coloring light to dark. Building up the color in light layers, building up and building up until the color “pops”. This is usually accomplished in five to six layers of color. When you think that the piece looks “dull”, keep building – and it will come alive. I will work on one area of the drawing and finish that area before moving onto the next, establishing technique for the rest of the piece to follow.
Patience, is the key to my art. Most pieces I spend about an hour per square inch. More complex pieces can be twice that time.
It is not uncommon for a piece to have more than one hundred hours put into it.
