This is not airbrushed, computer generated, digitally enhanced.
It is all blood, sweat, and fine art brushes gobbed with oil paint on a real piece of canvas or masonite board that have been gesso'd to get a smoooooth finish.

Great stuff! Just wondering, how did you connect with a gallery to display your works? It seems everyone has a different story..
A few more eye candy:
Concerning the gallery question, My first I approached them for an interview and showing of my work. The 2nd, I was approached at a local art fair to join.
Both have been very long and enjoyable relationships, as the folks that run them are very caring people. Not in it "just for the money".

Here are some closeups of the process and the brush work!
We have such a display here every fall, these just naturally fell onto the canvas. Well, not really.
a small series on plums, they have such a wonderful shape!
amazing, close ups are outstanding
Wow! You sure have patience, good stuff!
Hey Del, Very well executed paintings. I especially like some of the water drops you've done. My only advice would be to vary to the color temperature as the form roatates in space. This will help the plums for example really pop!!
You should post some progress shots... Keep it up...
great collection... i like each one of them... but what i love most is the white rose with the water droplets!
looking forward for some other posts... keep it up!
Thanks for the kind words!
I really feel out of place here sometimes as most of the art is computer generated or air brush work. It is so good, and professional looking. Leaps and bounds over what I do with a cheap talon filbert brush. But I try!
Here's a few more.
A series on apples,
wow, that's impressive
the plums and grapes are actually making me hungry
My first 2 commissioned portraits, how did I do. need to upload the reference photos, gotta go digging in the hard drive.
I love how you support your son's musical endeavours, thats really nice!
Your paintings are really cool too.
Thanks for showing and giving me a link to your educational site.
man i'd love to have one of those hanging in my room, real treat to look thro your work
Not much to say, mainly a big WOW!!!! and it looks great and perfect despite the fact that it's not a computer work. Really inspiring.

Here you can find some Infromation about art, painting, human drawing, portrait painting etc....
Awesome! You've got an outstanding amount of work that's superbly executed. I love them all. I have two questions. What size do you work and how many hours do you usually put in to them? Thanks for showing these and your time.
They all vary. Most of the floral's are 30" x 40". The portraits were (formal)24" x 30" and the cameo was a small 8 x 10.
Time wise. the still life's take the longest. It used to take me in excess of 150 hours to do them. I won't tell you how long they take now. (I'm a little faster) For I don't want to diminish the perceived value of the work. But like any skilled craftsman, you learn tricks to go faster to put better food on the table! And I eat way to much steak these days, LOL.
Anyway, I hope this answers your questions,
Have a happy thanksgiving! I gotta go put the turkey on!
Now we're going way back, my first still life sold at an art show. The letter actually depicted the blue lines in the paper, but the photo didn't capture it. It now hangs in a dentist's office in North Carolina. Do you remember putting your kids baby teeth in the tin and slipping that fiver under the pillow?
