After completing The Rock Star’s Little Brother, I felt the need to redo The Rock Star and I like this version much better. It is done strictly in water color pencils.
It was inspired by the lead singer of Collective Soul, Ed Roland, whose music has an impact on my life daily.


collective soul, ed roland

I rediscovered my love of painting and drawing when our daughter went off to college. I try to find inspiration in everything, but it seems that I am drawn to the beauty of nature!
