There probably aren’t many of you that know, I used to spend a huge amount of my time doing all kinds of artwork. I’ve covered a wide variety of mediums: pencil, oil, acrylic, watercolor, and even metal. In fact metal art, is really the only thing that I’ve kept up with through the years. Every year around Christmas, I get a few orders for some metal silhouette cut-outs from people looking for gifts. Even though I’ve kept up with the metal artwork, It’s been quite awhile since I’ve worked with any other forms of art. After meeting someone recently, that’s going to change soon.
When I got to know the folks at William Lamb and Son a while back, I started looking at the artwork that William puts out. His work has such a great feel to it, and takes you to the exact place in time that any of his art depicts. Needless to say, I caught the bug again. I’ve always been inspired by artists like Kenneth Wyatt, and Tim Cox, but William’s work has finally pushed me over the edge, and I’ve set up shop again on our antique drafting table.
With a birthday coming up tomorrow, I’ve already received some gifts from family, and as requested, my art supplies have been somewhat restocked. Even though, I’ve already been putting out some drawings with what I already have, there will be some paintings coming shortly. Today, I just want to give you a peek at some of the stuff that I’ve been working on to get the rust out, so bear with me…it’s been awhile!
It feels really good to be doing this again, and all of the thanks goes to William Lamb and his wife Margaret. They both have shown me that I need to kick back once in a while and do something that feeds the soul. Here’s to you, and hopefully many more to come.
