Castle


Castle is a watercolor of an old castle that sits near a lake in the British Isles. It dates back to the Twelfth Century.

Skull


I learned to love the beautiful form of the human skull after studying them. The body is truly a miraculous creation.

Portraits


This pastel drawing is of a model I entitled it "John."

Nutcracker


Nutcracker is drawn in charcoal on paper. It's a gift for my mother for Christmas; she used to take us to the ballet when we were young. Merry Christmas Mom!

Happy birthday Dad!

Happy birthday to great man. Thank you for being stalwart and faithful. I love you!

Cinnamon Honey Lemon Soother


Cinnamon Honey Lemon Soother

Pour 2 quarts boiling water over 2 sliced lemons with 2 broken cinnamon sticks. When warm enough to drink comfortably, add honey to taste. Drink several times a day. The lemon, honey and cinnamon all have components that help the body fight germs. You'll be back on your feet in no time!
