Welcome to My New Blog!



I am a bit of a blogging neophyte, still, with my one other blog, What's Good in Greensboro?, only a few months old. But now that I feel I'm getting the hang of it, I wanted to branch out into another area of interest to me, which is art.

As a professional portrait artist, I produce artwork, but as an art teacher and general art admirer, I also like to talk about art and to write about it, as well. I intend for this blog to be a place in which I can share my own work, but also to talk about other artists' work and other art-related subjects. Hopefully, it will be enriching and informative, and maybe fairly entertaining, as well (I do have my moments)! I also have a Facebook page of the same name, which you can visit here, but I do plan for this blog to eventually be much more thoroughly developed. There is a very large gallery of my work on the Facebook page, though, if you would like to see it. 

The illustration above is a portrait of my friend Doris's pet great horned owl, named Owlvin (yep). Doris is a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, so don't go thinking that anybody can have a pet owl. The rendering was done in pen and ink on bristol board. Owlvin is also the mascot for my Etsy shop, All Sorts of Art

  1. So Ali did you draw that? It's awesome, I love to draw horses, cats and dogs, but I never get the time anymore. I might post some online to show people when they get better, I don't think I an good enough yet to go public. Well done. I will be coming back here to see what's new.
