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.
