“Top Hand” is a signed,original, pastel and prismacolor pencil drawing.

Drawn on card stock, acid free, bonded no tooth artist drawing paper.
All of my drawings are sprayed with a final professional artist protective fixitive.

The romance of the West, Southwest and the Cowboy is a subject I always return to. I live both in Colorado and in Nevada, so I have an endless supply of personal photography that I draw from for these drawings. I personally developed this sharp focus pastel and prismacolor pencil technique to make my drawings come alive.
My studio is located in Mesquite, Nevada.

As with all of my artwork , my initials are on the front with full signature,title and date on back.
Thank you for viewing my art.

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.
Thanks for viewing my work
