My First Post

Hey Guys,

         My name is Jason Peck, and Im an Artist. Ive been drawing most of my life and painting for about 25 years now. I was diagnosed with one of the many forms of Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 4. I couldn't go outside and play with my friends because of my illness, so I spent most my days drawing, and eventually I turned to painting. I thank God for each and everyday, and for inspiring me to become an artist. 

Here are a few examples of my art.

A Mighty Pen
5X7, Pen and Ink on Paper
 
God So Loved
14X18, Oil on Canvas
 
The Pieta
8X10, Pencil & Watercolor on Paper
God Bless everyone, and thanks for letting me join. There are so many talented artist here on this blog. I really enjoy looking at everyone's art. Very inspiring.

'God So Loved' is exquisite, and truly moving. These are all beautiful works.

Welcome Jason.

Did you use models for God So Loved? Each of the Characters look like real individuals.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you.

Yes, I had friends and family pose for me. I posed myself, for the figure holding Christ Legs. I just sat in front of a large mirror and drew myself again and again, till I thought it looked like me.

Here is a link to a couple of the drawings for this painting;

Just scroll to the bottom of the page and youll see one of the many drawings I did of myself in preparation for this painting.

How can I get in touch with you about commissioning work? There's nothing on your sites that I can find.

Hi Charlie,

Thank you for the interest in my art, unfortunately I am unable to accept any commissions. I have Muscular Dystrophy and Arthritis. Because of my illness, I draw and paint at a very slow pace. Some of my paintings take me months even years to complete. Most of what I paint I donate to charity, or give to my family members.

God Bless
