Portrait of the Boy Jesus

Can you imagine what is must have been like to live in those Bible times and to be born into a life mission to save the world?

I tried to capture this in the look of innocents yet intensity of purpose.

I love to capture more than a likeness; more then the shape of the face figures but to capture the emotion of the moment is what I like to aim for.
This is a close-up of just part of this drawing that I called,
"The Path Before Him."

I have always been captivated by peoples faces. Never will I forget a face even if I forget the name. Faces tell so much about a person:

  • It tells if they are young or old

  • It tells if they are happy or sad

  • It tells if they are fair or dark or darker

  • It tells if they are male or female (usually)

  • It tells if hardship has been their friend

  • It tells... well so many things...

Faces can tell what is in the soul and what is on the mind. I love trying to capture that most of all. The challenge of capturing the likeness it really important but to capture a mood, a feeling, an emotion or the character of the person is very fulfilling.

This is part of a drawing that I did called, "Crisis Pregnancy Blessed Hope." I tried to imagine what it must have been like for Mary in those days when they would have stoned an unmarried woman who was caught pregnant.

"Where the Coffee Comes From"

Latte I always thought coffee was bad for me and preached this anti-coffee life-style to others for years. I don't know if it is my body changing or what but I love coffee now and it actually makes me feel better. I have since found out that it had health benefits. The last couple of years I went from not drinking coffee and still using an old drip coffee maker that I used for the occasional victims to an amateur coffee connoisseur with all kinds of methods and types of coffee. This is translating into my art work with "Tuesday Latte" and "Where the Coffee Comes From."
