Roses are blooming

We have a fence in our backyard that springs to life this time of year with pink roses blooming.  Here is a drawing I did based on a photo while waiting for a frozen pizza to cook.

Butano Farms

I did this quick sketch of a photo of Butano Farms on the cover of a magazine I receive periodically from the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST).

Time for a siesta

Once in a awhile I find the need to catch up on some sleep during the weekends with a mid-day nap.  One of my favorite artists, John Singer Sargent captured this perfectly in his painting titled Siesta.  The balance of light and dark values, warm and cool colors, and intertwined shapes creates a genuinely relaxed mood on a beautiful day outside.  This inspired me to attempt a copy of this famous painting.

You know Spring has arrived when...

You know Spring has arrived when baseball season is underway.  I did a quick sketch of Giants catcher Buster Posey in anticipation of another winning season.
