For a friend’s special Bday. It is sort of like the postcard effect. Markers, Charcoal & Colour Pencils on cardboard with feathers and stones. This was a fun project and cool surprise.
(Expressing my thoughts of a recent experience.)
The visible truth is proof that my tooth is now aloof
While healing gives a vivid meaning in dealing with the constant bleeding
I felt all the more secure after this process I had to endure
And finally now better and wiser than before.

Acrylic on Patterned Wood. This is the first real painted portrait, did attempt it in the past but just for practice and more about outlines. Photo of my fellow artist friend Barry. Painting was a welcomed change, will commit to more at some point.
Head shot portrait from a photo of Body_by_burnhard, I kept it as a challenge. I liked his expression and the action figure style of the pose. Colour Pencils on Cream Construction Paper (landscape).
One of my favorite winged creatures are hummingbirds. Always busy about their work and beautifully so. Their feathers may differ along with some other features yet they will always catch you eye as little as they are.
Derwent Colour Pencils and Progressor Gold Pencil on Black Paper.
I’m sure growing up for those who love and studied art,
Have drawn objects which were termed Still life. Yea?
And even if it was alive she or he must be still in order to achieve the task at hand.
This crosses the boundaries to photography as well,
A frozen action caught in time when the subject was objectively still.
And this part of life capturing events,
Of people, places and things
To reflect on later in time is wonderful.
Yet time shifts with life in hand,
Even some objects are subjected to achieve this effect,
While others aren’t.
Stillness is essential as much as movement is,
Let’s be grateful to God for life still.

Took a twist of sorts to make this piece more fun with bright colours just like the character of my colleague Brett. Prisma Coloured Pencils on Orange Construction Paper.
Protrait of Miami based artist Mijares. Prisma Coloured Pencils on Construction Paper. I am very happy with how this piece turned out, shows growth.
Another sketch based off a photo from Trevcole. Derwent Tinted Charcoal Pencils and Prisma Coloured Pencils on Black Paper.
They said let by-gones be
Just like that and it’s history
But will my story tell you of I’wisha
Lounging in bars pouring rounds of I’coulda
Throwing back shots loads of I’woulda?
Stagnated in a state of drunken debate
And wallowing with the infamous I’shoulda.
All the while sand keeps slippin through my fingers.
Reason whispers, “I thought better of you though,
Time’s a precious commodity boy,
Way too expensive to waste or lose.
How much yours going for, these days?”
