Creation of Adam

This is a large copy (72x38 inches) that I painted of one half of Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam" in the Sistine Chapel ceiling in Rome. It was commisioned by a client in Australia.

Here's a painting I did a few years ago of a toy stegosaurus. Like a lot of kids growing up, dinosaurs used to fascinate me and I thought it would be fun to revisit the subject.

Some Cast Drawings and a Painting

Here is the most recent cast drawing I did in my first year at the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York. I have one more cast drawing to do before I move onto painting when I return in September.

I did this drawing from a cast of a Donatello sculpture while I was on my summer break in Cairns, Australia.  

I painted this study of a tree in Cairns. It was the view outside my bedroom window

Still Life with Brazillian Fabric

Oil on Linen, 26 x 26 inches
Here is a Still Life painting, recently sold, that I'd been working on for a while. It was my attempt at using a cooler palette than I normally would and it served to satisfy my interest in employing a combination of pattern and three- dimensional form.
