Edits of artwork

It has come to my attention that from time to time, individuals download my artwork & shift it off as their own. What I've done is, I have photoshopped minor changes to some of my work. The pieces you see on here are slightly different than the original. Take the pastel piece of the John Tyler landscape I've posted. There's something in the right corner of the original that I photoshopped out of the piece you see here. If you'd like to see the original, you'll have to email me.

Lot's Wife

18x24 charcoal of Lot's Wife.

Basically, it's modeled after the story in the book of Genesis of Lot's wife. Lot and his family were told to leave Sodom. After fleeing the city, Lot's wife turned back to look, and she was turned into a pillar of salt. I can imagine that there was a lot of heartache in leaving the city - their family lived there, as did all of their friends. She probably heard the screams and torment, but not only that, her heart was still in the city.

The thought behind this drawing is based on that story, but years later. I imagined that, years after the salt began to dissolve and wash away - what if the bones of her body began to show through? In the background I decided to abstract fire raining from above. It's more of an abstracted memory of what happened than an actual background. This is what I came up with.

Teddy Bear

This is a charcoal drawing of a client's dog, 'Teddy Bear'. It's her anniversary gift to her husband. It's 11x17, and it was a lot of fun. I love doing pets.
