Notre Dame Cathedral

The painting above is a commissioned piece inspired by a fantastic photo taken from the top of the Notre Dame Cathedral in France.  Although I really love painting buildings, the gargoyle perched atop the Cathedral really inspired me and was my favorite part to create.  It amazes me that people can take blocks of stone and can chip away at it to create an amazing figure.  When something goes wrong in a painting, I can usually just paint over it.  If you chip away too much at stone, there's not much you can do about it!  

This is an original oil on canvas (16" x 20").  If you are interested in a print of this painting, please click here: Gargoyle's View Print

Blue & White!

Above is an image of my rendition of the mighty white and blue stadium in State College, Pennsylvania. This 18"x24" oil on canvas and was a blast to make. Out of the whole stadium, I must say that I especially love the senior student section, known as the "S-Zone" in the lower right hand corner. What a cool way to represent!
