Happy New Year!

I have mixed feelings about the fact that 2008 is here already. On the one hand I'm excited by my resolution (and I mean this one!) to finish a portfolio quality (whatever that means) illustration or painting every week to two weeks. I figure that by year's end I should have a decent amount of stuff to choose from for a real portfolio. But, on the other hand 2008 means that I'm getting older. Now, I'm not old by any means but I have definitely transitioned (at least in my head) from a young guy to whatever follows. I know that its all relative but since I'm usually surrounded by 20-somethings it feels weird that I haven't been one of them for several years. . . .

Anyway, to the point of the post. I've been experimenting with watercolors a bit lately and while I'm far from even decent, I do like working with them. So, here's one that I scanned. The companion piece was a gift for my mom for Christmas and looked way better than this one.


Oh, its about 6"x 9" or something close to that. . .

I like this painting a lot....it may be my most favorite of your stuff. You seem more confident making the watercolor brush strokes than your pen work.

yeah...I'm getting old too. My 31st B-Day is in a month. Lucy and I even had a 'baby' talk. Looks like it's alllllll downhill for me.

sniff, sniff.
