This was created using an original graphite drawing on paper with gold oil paint (drawn back in the 90’s). I scanned in the drawing and used the Layer App to create this collage.

Photostudio and Brushes on iPod Touch
I was walking through town last week trying to get some pictures of the leaves before they were all gone. I came across this house with the little red tricycle on the porch. I wondered whether it was left there by a child after taking it for a ride or was merely a decoration placed in front of the red door.
There was a time when i painted a lot of self portraits out of necessity – i couldn’t really afford to pay models. Then i totally removed myself from the equation when i started doing mainly landscapes. Some might say, though, that the artist is always present in their art no matter whether it is a landscape, still life, or abstract painting.
Since joining Twitter and Flickr I’ve been thinking about how a person’s avatar represents the artist to the world. I’ve read articles on “branding yourself on Twitter” and how your choice of avatar is very important to whether people will follow you and take you seriously as an artist.
I created this self portrait/avatar using a photo taken on my mac with Photo Booth and modified with Sketchbook Mobile, Layers and Photo Finish.
