my . artist run website  

We made it home after an exciting and wonderful cruise to the Hawaiian Islands! I have had this idea rolling around in my head for a while now, not sure how it will be received; but I'm going forward! It is quite a deviation from what I have previously done. This is a piece that may invoke criticism or praise depending on how you preceive it. It will be called "Behold, When I Knock......" I am not a preacher, but am not ashamed to be a Christian either. I am trying something very different here as I explore and try to expand my capabilities as an artist. I have no visual "set-up" and this piece is a composite of several different images I have seen in the past. This sketch is a basic image of a simple old door that I will try to bring to life with detail, color, shadows, and glazing. I will keep a running post of how I proceed. I hope you will enjoy the process as I go along!



In case you check in here in the next few days, I and "momma" will take a few days to find some sea, sand, and surf and get out of the cold and wet here in Gruene. I am planning to post what my next project will look like and how I will put that together.


See everyone soon!


Blessings, Gary

I have added some new pictures and details to my website, so as I move forward I will try to share a bit more of myself and how I choose, set-up, draw and the begin the painting process.

I have added three new pages with a compilation of steps from the original set-up, photo and then the steps to bring each piece to life.  More to come!



Hope you enjoy the new website! Currently it is mostly "under construction" as I will make changes and add new information and artwork. I will try to include some of my process and set-ups as I continue.


Thanks again and enjoy the ride!!
