There are moments in life when it becomes challenging to make time to create purely for one's self. Therefore, I embraced the opportunity to tutor a former student of mine, (now friend) , Zach Woomer, on how to paint in oil paints. We commit 2 hours out of our busy schedule to meet and paint.

A friend of mine recently started working at a office supply/art store. He has been meeting a lot of the local artist and has been gleefully exchanging creative tips and enthusiasm. Generously, he gave me a sample of this high end paper he was informed about called Stonehenge. The paper is very smooth with minimal pitting, but grabs pencil wonderfully! Thanks Grimmer.

Ever since childhood trains have always fascinated me.
Still as an adult I will pull over to watch the trains go by.
A train moving along the tracks in Brandywine, PA
I was trying to use every means of applying ink to this drawing.
You can see the use of a pen, brush and the use of a toothbrush to splatter.
I used a razor blade to scrap out the train tracks.

|My new business card, when folded, is the size of the standard business card.|
But, also hints at flapping of wings when opened and closed.
