Conducted a Graphite, Pastel/Color Pencil Drawing lesson … for everyone today in class…sometimes I even forget the simple beauty of just the pencil…
Naturally, I go to my love of the endless shapes, curves,and shadows in the faces of the Native American People.
This is a graphite, pastel and color pencil drawing on card stock, bonded, low tooth, acid free artist drawing paper.
This piece is 11"X14" in unframed size.
My Fine Art Studio is located in the Nevada/Arizona desert.
This piece is dedicated to my dedicated students!

Thank you for viewing my art, comments always appreciated!

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
