I recently finished painting a beautiful new “Taylor” made baby acoustic guitar for a client.
His specifications were to paint a great horned owl in memory of a taxidermic owl his grandfather made in 1920. With no other specs this gave me the opportunity to use my own creative intuition with the design.   

I chose a northwest feel.
Using dead manzanita branches with wolf lichen as reference, freshly blooming leaves and bright colors of sea and lime green relate to the changing of season of spring, and the tree mushrooms are a reflection of the old growth in the Mt. Hood national forest. Look closely and you will find skeleton bones intertwined in the branches, with feathers warping into nature itself. I was very pleased with the outcome of my painterly strokes and lifelike feel within the owl illustration.

After the painting was finished I clear coated it with a low gloss varnish. It is now in the hands of the musician. Let its energy guide the next artist.

Here are a few pictures of my process to finish:

This week I had the privilege of creating an institutional holiday illustration for PNCA! I was given a bicycle to work with that was made by three applied Craft and Design Students who are in the MFA program there. My illustration will be made into cards with the quote “Powered by Creativity and Collaboration.” I was really interested in working with a festive color palette and detailed line work! This is what I came up with:
