When the Memphis Urban Sketchers met on South Main this past Saturday, we had an extra little guest.

Church Health Center Holiday Card

The Church Health Center commissioned me to create a painting for their annual holiday card. I painted this image of a baby being lifted up by a man (a doctor?) to symbolize their mission of caring for the body and spirit. Donate a minimum of $10 and send these cards in the honor of someone special. I appreciate the good work that the Church Health Center does, and I also appreciate that they have taken the time to acknowledge me as the artist. See more information here.

Poplar Ave.

















Poplar Avenue 8/11/10
I remember this being the last thing on Poplar headed east when I was a kid, and it did not look this good at the time. Now everything is built up around it, and it is home to a law firm. a guy was painting the front porch when I sketched it.
