A couple Watercolors

I've got some new work that I would love to share with everyone, however I can't do that until they are published, so until then I figured I would post a couple watercolors that I did a year ago. I love watercolor so much, would love to do more of it, and plan to do some fine are pieces that I can hopefully get in some galleries here in Chicago.

The first is a self portrait that I did, me sitting next to my pal Lupe . . . and yes, he is for real, he's a huge guy, but a true softy at heart, a great guy! As you may know, I am a huge Norman Rockwell fan, so this piece is sort of a tribute to Norman's work.

The second piece is . . . A Rockwell study! I tried to see how close I could get to the original, a huge challenge with watercolors. I'm proud of what I was able to do here with watercolors, it was fun to do, I felt a connection of sorts to Rockwell when painting it. When painting from a master's work, you learn quite a bit about their work, technique, and use of color and brush strokes.

On the drawing board today . . . I'm finishing my "Basil Gogos" approach to a Zombie Elvis for "The Imaginarium", I'll post it soon. Also working on a few others, so check back soon!

I am an admirer of Rockwell's work, too. Your version Rockwell is fantastic!!! Your domain of the watercolor is magnificent.

Jason, is there any medium that you haven't mastered?! Can't wait to see the new work mate, and I'm so glad that you're okay.

Thanks all, encouraging to hear! I hope to have more opportunities to work with watercolors . . . I may be doing a children's book soon all in watercolor?
