My Icing this Week: iPad Pro Portrait 3

Another portrait on that cool little number they call an iPad Pro. Referenced from pexels, I think, or maybe unsplash. Either way, painting her was a joy for me this week. Just spreading the love.

“Leap”, My Second Portrait/Figurative Painting Made with iPad Pro

It’s keeping me up at night, folks, this iPad is. I am drawing with invisible charcoal and painting with invisible paint. Whaaaa? And it has occurred to to me how much of working with traditional media is setting up, cleaning up, physical/chemical problem-solving, and the wait time in between. And actually I really love that process, but... this is just such a new and different experience for me! “Leap” was inspired and largely informed by a beautiful Creative Commons photo I saw on pexels.

Legend has it that there actually had been an espresso machine in commission at the time the original mural was painted, but that's ancient history, so it was definitely time for a facelift. Here's what it looked like before: And here was one of...

Denver: Portrait of a City

I took a photo walk around Denver recently, to discover and re-discover some nooks and haunts. The early morning lended itself to quiet streets and long shadows, and after that it was busy and hot and I went home back to the mountains with a happy little treasure trove of images to commemorate the outing. Here are some selected images from that day. Enjoy!
