Study No. 1 | The Girl and the Owl

My fiancee and I are moving which means I’ll be moving into a brand new studio soon! The change is welcome and I’m excited to have more room to spread my wings. Packing up the old studio has put me into a reflective frame of mind and I’ve been thinking about how much I’ve grown as an artist in the past few years. I’m happy and thankful for my progress but I’m definitely ready and looking forward to the next phase in my life and career.

Girl & the Owl

During this time of old to new, I’ve decided to say goodbye to the past by revisiting some of my previous work in a series of graphite drawings I’ve created from a selection of my favorite paintings. The first goodbye study is based on a painting I’m really proud of: The Girl and the Owl.

    Thats so cool your doing that. I am only a high school student so I of course have not enough money. But If I did I could buy this in a heart beat. I love your work. Actually I did A series of 3 pieces based of your work for my portfolio.
    With love
