Confessions of a Newbie

Hi, everybody! I'm very excited to have become part of this blog - especially as the logo is Fra Angelico. About me - I'm a senior art student, majoring in painting and graphic design, from Topeka, Ks. I have a deep appreciation of all art (I am an art student, right?) but especially for medieval illumination. Oh, and if you see my profile picture, you'd see that I'm also a lover of both Doctor Who and Antoine de Saint-Exupery. :)

Here are some examples of my own work. The first two are the works I made for the apocalypse competition - although I'm really rusty at it, the chance to do large scale illumination was irresistable. The works after that are what I'm used to doing, biggish (usually around 30x40") photorealistic oil paintings.












































I look forward to seeing everybody's work on here! Oh, and happy New Year. Mine's going to be very busy.

Beautifully detailed work! Fabulous! The painting with the road and skyline has a hypnotizing effect. I could get lost in that piece.

Welcome!
