Reaching Out is a textural study of a seated model that appears to be stretching for something beyond the picture plane. I especially like the light effect and the textural marks the charcoal made on the quality drawing paper.
Whenever I work from a model I always try to achieve a strong visual effect that goes beyond the image of the sitter. In this one the strong light effect gives the girl a dramatic look that draws the viewer into an intimate scene.
I like to work from both males and females but I prefer to work from the female form. The drawing is in a white mat.

My paintings have been seen throughout the United States in national, international, and group shows. I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene. My paintings were in two group shows on Broadway and my biography is included in The Original Marquis Who's Who in America.
I taught in the Art Department of Radford University for a twenty years as Assistant professor. I taught Art Appreciation, Drawing, Oil Painting, Watercolor painting, Foundations, and served as Gallery Director for one year.
I enjoyed working with Art and Design students. My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and I received many compliments on my course curriculum. Oftentimes I had students that were not enrolled in the class ask me if they could sit in for a class. I have fond memories of those guest students! What a great compliment for me!
My best-selling print, "Reaching Out", was selected from over three million works of art on Fine Art America to be on the set of The Mindy Project and I appeared with my artwork on The Hour of Joy on FoxTV out of Roanoke on March 10th 2013.
I live to paint and it is important to me to find homes for all of my creations. I have originals and prints in twenty-four states, Canada, Germany, Russia, England and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art!
I have over thirty years experience shipping my artwork with no returns - just compliments!
