12×25 in. mixed media. In my younger days I tried my hand at commercial art working for the city of Topeka Parks and Recreation part-time, while working full-time at a Pet Food plant. The assignments were fun and I got a taste of working with a client and what they wanted and what you could deliver at minimum wages. The real nice thing was after doing this for about 2 years I realized if i was doing art like this for 40+ hours a week I would have gotten to a point of losing the zest of creativity. A great job and I met some very interesting people but my dream of being a commercial artist took a big hit plus I was good at making dog food 😉
At any rate this piece was an idea I had for a science fiction book cover long ago and finally did it recently. Markers, colored pencils, graphite lead, and acrylic created the effect…if you see a reflection in the picture I was too lazy to remove the piece from the frame before shooting, what else can I say.
Reblogged this on Sherry's Space.
You are really great with colors.. and i wonder why I’m only comfortable with pencils.. keep up the great work 🙂
Love your bright colourful work, like this one a lot….thanks for the follow.
Wow, beautiful! I love it. Great colors, I like that look of fantasy. Thanks for following my blog it led me to yours!
I love this. The colors are so vibrant and futuristic. This is the kind of picture you’d use for inspiration while writing a Sci-fi novel. Thanks for stopping by and subscribing to my blog.

Your work is beautiful. Thanks for following my blog.
I love this!!! Your painting looks so realistic that you feel like you can reach out and touch the sun !!! Thank You for visiting my blog!! *Cynthia
This is very beautiful.
this is really, really neat!
I love the cloud treatment and color.
I would read this book. I just like the look that the world is waiting for me to step inside. Don’t know how you captured so much emotion in this picture, but I feel the loneliness, the desolation and yet the inviting possibilities.
Thank You … you read it well … that pleases me so much.
I adore the texture on the clouds. Very nice work you have here.
Very nicely done. It should fit on a wall art – mural of few meters width! I’m sure it will be very relaxing view to look at!
Another favorite, and this one also brings back a very fond memory for me. One year, very long a go, my family went to the Badlands on our summer vacation. It was truly an amazing experience, the sunsets are so beautiful there!
Definitely has a sci-fi feel to it and the texture in the clouds adds to it.
That’s fantastic! I love the way that you did the sun, as well as the texture of the clouds.
Speaking as an ignorant scribe, AnElephantCant help loving this stuff. Superb!
All creatures great and small fuel this artist with their feedback…appreciate the time, thanks.
My favorite. Great colors.
I love this, the colours are gorgeous together!
That is SO cool! I love it!
Thanks…I don’t do much that can be considered realistic in nature…much to my one son’s dismay…but when I do I pour as much effort into it as my abstracts.
