Happy Easter everyone! A sketch of my friend’s ducklings.
Beautiful day to sketch the blossoming cherry trees at Spring Grove Cemetery.
Painting from a live art event I did last night with the Ghost Empire Collective at the Drinkery in Over the Rhine. Getting geared up for Game of Thrones in the best way…
Sketch for the latest Ghost Empire Collective challenge which was honoring the dead. I did it in honor of Carl Sagan and the new Cosmos.
Sketch I did in Clifton this evening before the Tim’s Vermeer movie. VERY windy…
The movie is fascinating. It hypothesizes Vermeer’s use of lenses and mirrors to do his work.
Finally warn enough to get outside and sketch! This was at Washington Park yesterday afternoon.

The rare Angleroar Sea Dragon… I drew it for my nephew’s (belated) birthday card. I usually draw a dragon, but since he was just snorkeling on vacation, I went under the sea.
The most recent sketch challenge for The Ghost Empire Collective.
The theme was Star Wars and Music.
I have always thought that operas were the blockbusters of their time with ostentatious sets and over the top special effects. The Ring Cycle by Wagner was The Lord of the Rings movies of its time.
I got the idea because I had just watched Wagner & Me with Stephen Fry discussing Richard Wagner (and the controversy over his legacy). (I never knew that Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria was built in honor of Wagner’s work.)
Of course the Bugs Bunny cartoon What’s Opera Doc is also a tribute to Wagner.
I think Princess Leia is a great Brünnhilde.
This sketch also has a dash of Aida. I can never get The Grand March tune from that one out of my head.
Princess Leia as Brünnhilde…
