Silverpoint Drawing
5×7″ green-gray prepared paper

This drawing is created with a silver stylus on a specially coated surface – a Renaissance-era medium known as silverpoint. I prepared the paper with a green-gray tone and added white charcoal highlights. Silverpoint will tarnish to a metallic sepia tone over time. To learn more about it, and to see the silverpoint box and stylus holders that I made, please visit my website. Don’t forget to subscribe to The Art Fly to receive images as I post them!

For an inside look at this shell, please see May 2009 archives at upper right; go to May 7 post for an x-ray view of this.

Please email me if you are interested in this silverpoint.

Acrylic Painting
5×7″ panel

I’ve been working on small, rather Impressionistic landscapes like this – mostly Bucks County, PA and Hunterdon County, NJ scenes – that I promised to a few local galleries. I’m particularly attracted to deep space with long rows of trees, fields and lanes, etc. I’ll post the images here first before taking them to the galleries…

SOLD. Please email me if you are interested in other paintings like this.

Oil Painting
5×7″ bevel-edge panel

I just re-discovered these fascinating seedpods on a shelf in my studio. On a trip to Alabama a few years ago these things were all over the place. They’re decorative with tightly patterned stems that are like handles.

Silverpoint Drawing
5×7″ gray-blue prepared panel

This was drawn with a silver stylus on a gray-blue toned surface. As silver tarnishes, so will a silverpoint tarnish to a warm metallic tone. To learn more about this Renaissance-era drawing medium (that pre-dates the pencil) visit my website.
