  "The Cornerstone Series No. 2"
  The second in my series of tasteful nude figure paintings
  designed around the marble cornerstone of Fort Payne's old Forest
  Avenue School - exhibited on the grounds of the Fort Payne Depot
  Museum - as a pedestal for the model to sit on.

  "The Sleeping Naiad"
  When visiting Little River, the mystical beauty of the canyon's eroded
  limestone riverbed inspired me to do a rendering of the river's spirit
  after the minor deities of Greek Mythology known as Naiads, whose
  essence were tied to the body of water they inhabited.

  "The Release"
  This unusual work is a revisitation of a composition done long ago
  when I was fascinated with surrealism. Here I've redesigned and
  refined the original concept until it is now a totally new work done in
  airbrushed acrylic, gouache, pencil, charcoal pencil, and pastel.

  "Kathryn"
  Being able to do well-crafted fine art portraiture in oils is considered
  the mark of a competent artist. In this oil-on-canvas rendering I hope
  I have achieved such a level of competence. You can be the judge.

  "The Sequined Shawl"
  This colored pencil portrait of a young lady peers at the us with eyes
  of deep brown, set in a lovely face that's framed by the beaded sequins
  of her shawl. Emphasis of the sequins was achieved by a flat appli-
  cation of India ink and silver enamel.

  "Diptych Number One"
  As the title implies, this unusual portrait is a two-piece work of art,
  using a perfume ad from a magazine as the basis. Split in two and
  mounted on separate panels of illustration board, a restorative positive
  drawing has been done on the left, while a restorative negative drawing
  was done on the right.

  "Cameron with Her Hair Down"
  The actress Cameron Diaz is the subject of this pencil portrait.
  Depicted with her hair down in an untypical, loose style that may seem
  rather unfamiliar to most of us.

  "The Fitness Model"
  Fitness model Carole Semple was the subjest of this figure study in
  pencil on acid-free illustration board. It was a challenge to capture the
  way she projected an aura of strength and beauty at the same time.

  "Penelope Revisited"
  This work was the pencil study for an earlier figure painting. I was so
  focused on getting her proportions and placement in the vignette
  correct that I never finished her face in my eagerness to start painting.
  After finding the incomplete sketch, I finally put a face on her.
