So Proud of This Young Man!

Artwork: Mixed media on brass

Talent, drive and hard work are evident with the art my youngest son is producing as he nears the end of his first year in art school. It was a privilege to be invited to Laguna College of Art + Design last night for his first art show. Prizes were handed out at this reception in each field of study and my son received first place in Illustration! He is the third generation of artists to come from our family: the first was my dad (a conceptual artist), I came next as an illustrator/graphic artist and now we are watching Mitch grow into an accomplished artist himself.

Wanting to incorporate airbrushing in my art

In my college years, I studied airbrushing and was really impressed with what can be accomplished with using this tool in my art. I’ve seen the art done on surfboards and skateboards even on firearms but it is a tedious process and as an illustrator, I was more interested in being precise and wanted to use my small paintbrushes to add minute detail. 

As with the Corvette I painted, certain subjects lend themselves better to using an airbrush.

This scene I had taken from the movie Fantasia was also perfect for using an airbrush. It has been far too long since I have used my airbrush, so it is time to pull it out to create some new art.🎨

Our Military

My son served in the US Army, and for that commitment, my husband and I are so proud of him. All of our veterans and those who are currently serving deserve our respect and thank you’s for their protection and sacrifice. I was one thankful momma when my son came home from deployment!
