Hands On

This website is dedicated to my photography. I mean, it’s in the name! Still, I have other interests that I’d like to share. The one’s I’m talking about are at least ‘artistic’ in nature. I have plenty of other interests that I won’t get into on this page as they have nothing to do with anything remotely creative.

Most of what I’m going to share in this article began as photographs, so really, this isn’t that much of a departure.

It’s important to note that the works I’m going to share in this post were made in 2010. I bring that up only because I’m planning to get back to this and I’d like this site to serve as a journal of sorts and to document my (hopeful) progress!

With photographs as a reference (usually), I gathered the supplies and instructional books on the subject and set out to see what I could do. Admittedly, these first attempts are probably juvenile, but we all have to start somewhere.

I’m sure an experienced artist would scoff at these sketches, but again, I’m just a beginner at this point.

Ok, I’ve stalled long enough. Without further fanfare, here are a few of the sketches that I produced (again – in 2010).


I’m not sure what prompted me to want to pick this up again. I would also like to start painting again and, well most paintings begin with a sketch. Perhaps that’s the reason. Plus, my wife and I just watched the movie “Big Eyes” and it’s possible that the movie got me thinking about getting into it. In any case. There ya go. I hope you found this of interest.  Until next time!
