Man in Makeup VIII

This is not me...
Man in Makeup VIII (16"x24" acrylic on stretched canvas) I'm no Red Skelton (artistically or comedically) but I sometimes used to play him in my classroom. Clowns are fun. They have a long, rich, exciting tradition in art. This is my contribution to that phenomena.

THIS is me...
I'm sixty-ish, balding, bearded, bespectacled, professorial, outgoing, knowledgable about a lot of things, expert on a very few. I grew up in the small town of Stockport, situated on the Muskingum River in Southeastern Ohio. I graduated from a un-noteworthy business college in Cincinnati, from the U.S. Air Force, and from Ohio University where I also obtained a masters degree and wracked up several hours of post-graduate work as well.

I (more or less) successfully taught elementary and high school art for a over 26 years. I've also spent many enjoyable hours in the front of a local community college classroom. Over a decade ago, I retired from teaching in favor of writing web pages, traveling, and doing things I've never done before.

For most of my professional life I've run a portrait business out of my home, specializing in sports portraits done in pencil and colored pencil. Aside from a few painted portraits, painting has always been more of a hobby than a source of income which makes me an amateur in every sense except my educational background in the area.

I welcome your constructive comments regarding this limited peek at my work. Needless to say, I would also welcome any interest in purchasing any of the works seen here or in my doing custom work of any portrait subject in any medium seen here.
