Artistic Side Table

Solid wood side table refinished with dark walnut stain with an original drawing on the top. This table is 48"Wx16"Dx30.5"T. The drawing on the top features a large treetop splaying away fro the center done in black and ochre. The color mirrors the smokey stained background of natural wood. The top surface is treated with a heavy polycoat for protection and durability.




Upscaled Storage cabinet

This piece is a standard sized storage cabinet of the type typically installed over the toilet in a bathroom. It is refinished and coated with poly on both the interior and exterior for durability. I have drawn a treetop style drawing on the front door. There are two shelves inside the cabinet.

Sparrows in the Hoar Frost

Here is a color pencil drawing based on some sparrows in a lilac bush last winter. The day was clear and bright and the sparrows were spending the morning flitting through the branches.

End of the Race

I came upon this dead rat while walking the dog, laying in the middle of the sidewalk in the bright sunlight. It's race over but now captured in artwork prior to being consumed by crows.
