Some of My College Art

I thought I'd post some paintings from my photo-realism phase :-) The bottom two were done with gouache.

I'll fight you for the dog, Laura! I am glad you posted these Paige - it just goes to show you never know what direction you'll take. Drawing and painting from life are so different from 'making up' illustrations and characters ... it's good to see where you started out.

oh wow they are really good. however I am really partial to the dog. It is something I could sit and look at and come away smiling.

Thanks everyone! The doggy is my childhood best friend Captain Jack. We used to run amok together along that river across the street from my house in NC. He lived to be 17 years old--I was in college when he died. I still have his collar and when I move it and hear the tags clink together it's like he's back again. I miss him.
