Commissioned Portrait for Raymond Goode

This is the completed portrait for author Raymond Goode. Photographs will come at a later date of his book and the book signing. This oil portrait was commissioned for the cover of his latest book. I will post them once I get them. Due to surgery, I was unable to attend the unveiling and book signing.

Commissioned Portrait - In Progress

This portrait was commissioned for the cover of a book by Raymond Goode. It's a simple oil portrait of his mother. He opted to go with the bottom sketch for the painting for personal reasons. The book has been published, and the book signing is today. This will be the first one of these I will be missing, as I had to get surgery yesterday, and have to go back today for a follow up.

Neptune Sculpture

I love good sculpture. Virginia Beach has a really nice sculpture of King Neptune by Paul DiPasquale. I had the opportunity to go see this sculpture earlier this month. It's a beautiful sculpture right on the boardwalk. The only issue I had with it was the amount of vendors that are allowed to set up next to it. Directly to the right was a vendor, and the sun was coming from the right, so I could only shoot it head on. It's a marvelous work of art.

Tattoo Design

This is a tattoo design for a friend of mine. She's Puerto Rican and wanted the Puerto Rican flag, the flower of Puerto Rico, and her being a Leo, she wanted a lion.

Bathroom Wall Mural

This is my bathroom wall. Earlier I posted a photograph of Saddam Hussein in the Radwaniyah Palace with a sword. If you look off in the distance behind him, you'll see a wall very similar to this one. I just kind of changed the colors to my own liking a bit. If you'll notice, I left the bottom portion incomplete. Towels are constantly being draped over the towel rack, so I felt that since it would always be covered, and water would always be dripping on it, it would be best to leave it unfinished.
