A couple of sketches I recently added to my Arches travel book. Made during my last visit to Chicago.
Chicago is totally amazing. The skyscrapers are grand and gorgeous as they stand in front of the scenic Michigan lake, sail boats, green parks and beautiful fountains.

Letters from Provence

Letters about summer, vast expanses and lavender fields, about sun and southern wind, about heady smell of grass and small houses bathed in warm sunshine...
I've never been to Provence but I dream about that wonderful place often and like to paint the pictures that I imagine.

This amazing lionfish caught my eye in the "Shark reef" aquarium in Las Vegas. Lionfish embodies both the beauty and danger. It looks so cute with it's gracefully flowing fins and bright coloration, but it's venomous spines can produce very painful stings.
This painting is 12'' x 16'' in size on Arches rough paper.

And that's how it was looking at me from the aquarium:)
