New Art & Art Shows

I’ve been slacking from blogging a bit, but have been working on trying to get my work out there more this year (and in the future). Here are some finished pieces I’ve done (2012-2013). The majority were done in graphite and ink, with the exception of “Home” (which has color created with a colored pencil) and “Secret Garden (which was done in crayon). I submitted the first one (below) and the work titled (House in the Mountains” for the Lawndale Big Show, but was not accepted. The other pieces where  featured in the JoMar Visions Group Show last month. I will also be submitting works for the 17th Annual Citywide African American Artists Exhibition sponsored by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH). Last year my work titled “Thomas & Janie” was accepted. Wish me luck!

“French Bouquet on Blush”

I want to make this large, and use and altered version of my handwriting as the font for ‘Bonjour’. I think this print will look better on blush.

UPDATE: A Work in Progress, Almost Done!

I continued working on the project from my last post. I’ve finished coloring the little boy, and the flowers on his side yesterday. Today I finished drawing and coloring his sister. Next I have to finished the flowers and mount it. I’m thinking of using a light grey matte board. I took some photos with my cell phone, so they might not be the best quality. I’ll definitely use my camera to take photos of the finished product.
