I’m testing out my skill with gouache on a very simple subject. I always think this is easier than it turns out, even with this simple apple I think I can learn a lot.

I’m starting every session now with life drawing from new masters academy, I think it helps get me warmed up for more art, and it satisfies my daily art goal right away which has been difficult to accomplish lately.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
