My wife asked me if I would make her a Mandala. I had never heard of it let alone make her one. So I did a google search, and found out what it was. It looked a bit intimidating at first, but with my photoshop it and some time spent, I think the final result turned out good.

Just finished another painting I did for my wife. She requested a painting of a Hoot Owl. I pondered the possibility of painting one just setting in a tree, but that seems to be the norm. So I found a great photo of one in flight and did my render to capture it on canvas. I certainly hope you like it. Thanks for looking

This is another contest picture I did, actually everything I did came out of the original picture. I think the results came out good!
I think hands along with flowers, have to be the most difficult to draw and paint. Everything is gradient, color and shadow changes are a constant.
This picture was a fun picture to do. It actually took me several days to do before I wound up with the end result. This is a "Out of Bounds" picture..
This is the group that met at the "House of Blues Restaurant" at Photoshop World, Mandalay Bay Casino, Las Vegas.
From Left to Right, yours truly, my wife, Ray, Dave from Houston, Dave Cross, daughter Stephanie, Corey Barker, RC seated and his wife standing behind him, Gerry and his wife, Scott, Matt Klozkowski, and Doug. We had a lot of fun that night.
A sample of my work. This picture took me a little over a month to complete.
I have been doing Native American Art since my high school days. I am an enrolled tribal member of the Ponca Nation here in Oklahoma. I am a member of the Eagle and Buffalo Clans. I took Native American Art at Haskell University in Lawrence, Ks. I had the privilege of learning from the late Dr. Dick West.
When I first saw the Red Rock mountains by Las Vegas, I was moved to paint them because of the color, light and shadows the mountains produced. I am always in awe of the power of God, and his grace, especially when it comes to big thunderhead clouds, and the power they hold. So when I captured the clouds I was moved to add them to this picture. The Eagle is one of my ancestors!
Thank You, Red Earth Arts
Alright, this picture took me a few days to complete, since I only painted the little old lady. I was searching the web for an Old Indian face to paint, and stumbled onto the precious little old lady that was standing in the background in this crowd. When I saw her she reminded me of my Grandma, standing there with her Grand daughter at a Powwow.
If you have a favorite picture of one of your ancestors, and would like to have it painted, just send me an email and we can arrange it.
Thank you for looking..
One day I started in photoshop and was messing around with some brushes that I had recently downloaded, and stumbled onto a pretty neat start to a cool design that I made, using some very vivid colors. I made this design for T-shirts, black ones mainly.
I was entered into a photoshop contest, and developed this picture using filters mainly.
