new drawing 11 16 2007

Hi's a drawing I made yesterday with watercolor pencils over handmade paper in a book I was given years ago and hadn't worked in yet. As I often do, I started with creating his bone structure from scratch and kept evolving him until he felt right to me. I'll update pix of him as he develops. Happy Thanksgiving!

Rousseau After Hours

Here's another new oil painting I've created this fall..I'd created a landscape many years ago and went back into it unpremeditated one day..the figure that emerged looked like me briefly and then turned into what I imagine the painter Rousseau might have looked like relaxing after a hard day painting jungle fantasias!

All else is well here..painting up a storm, getting ready for the first of 3 local art festivals in Hollywood FL (wishing I was at the Bear Bust year!)and preparing to be able to offer cards and prints of these and more of my paintings (without the watermark of course ;)

All my best to you! William
