Detroit Institute of Art Sketches


I drew these at The DIA recently. The girl on the left is supposed to be The Virgin Mary and the character on the right was a saint. Both were statues. A small boy saw me drawing the donkey statue and he told his mom that I was drawing it. She smiled at me.

Henry Ford Museum Sketches


Some recent sketches at The Henry Ford Museum. I saw the young Asian woman in the coat with her elderly husband as they toured the museum. I'm pretty sure she was a mail order bride. The other two women are manikins from the airplane display and I spotted the dog on some wall art.

Fashion Magazine Girl


Another one of my sketches from a fashion magazine. I know I still need to work on faces and hands, but I do like the way her purse turned out.

Blue Bird


This is a little blue bird statue that I own. I got him at a dollar store, and I was trying to sketch different views of him.

I bought this cute mouse statue at a flea market a while back.
