I’ve been working on a novel now for a couple of years, mainly because I’m a slow writer and my brain is a bag of cats. Too many ideas. Not enough time. Well, I needed some stress relief this week and decided to do a painting to keep my illustration skills up and maybe spark some inspiration. The result was a concept illustration for a character in my book.

I love Westerns. I love the history of pioneer life, the open range, and homesteading. While I struggle to write about it, the artwork comes pretty easy to me. I hope you enjoy this gentleman and I hope you get to hear his story before I die.

Let me know what you think, or if you know anyone who needs an illustrator. Thanks for stopping by.
