A white pencil on black paper drawing is a departure from the "traditional" method of drawing in many ways. It requires a different way...

A small plot twist - I started making arrangements for the delivery to the NLCC post. When I spoke with the Commanding Officer I asked who the Cadet was, explaining I had lost my notes. He said the portrait is a good likeness, but he would have to check with the mother of the Cadet. She's an identical twin!

Navy League Cadet Corps Orillia is open for any child between 9-13.  It is a group where kids are taught the basics of Canadian Naval Traditions, as well as parade drill, citizenship, seamanship, sailing and much more.

I started out drawing stick figures when I was a little kid, just like everybody else. When I was 12 I took a group art class. Steve Pugsley was the instructor. I remember really liking the "follow the edge of the object" drawing exercise. In high school I was the year book photographer for three years. I might have taken an art class but I can't say for sure. In college I had one art class that involved graphite, ink, and acrylic paint mediums. My classmates and instructor said I should change my major but I stayed with health sciences. 27 years later I took Drawing & Composition I at the local community college -- just to see what it was like. I was hooked and took Drawing & Composition II followed by Life Drawing. I haven't had time to take anymore classes in the last four years. I have a pretty rough work schedule now, 40-60 hours a week and I work out of town a lot, but I try and fit in portraits when ever I can. Some are commissions, some are family or acquaintances. At first, I couldn't draw for more than two hours at a time before my brain became mush. Now I can work on a drawing for up to nine hours. Time just stops, it doesn't exist when I draw. I think this is a good sign.

Current Residence: The house next to the driveway where my car is parked.
