Drawing of baby MakaiLynn

This is a drawing I finished in 2011.

I decided to start doing children’s portrait drawings like this as a professional pursuit – both drawings and paintings as well.  I just love kids. They come to this world with an amazing spirit inside that we adults eventually find a way to squash somehow.  I want to capture this spirit of children with my art.  I already have one new client I am working with, and I’m looking for more.  Email eric at ericdgreene-dot-com or visit my Etsy store!

As you can see in the screenshot above, I have started out with 4 landscape pieces, but I plan to add more soon. I am excited about selling my artwork on Etsy.  I have put a lot of effort into the entire process, not just in creating the artwork, but also in the photography of art (plenty of lessons learned there!) as well as getting two of the pieces matted and ready to be sold.

“Pears” – Oil Pastels Art

Oil Pastels Pears

“Pears” is an oil pastels piece done in 2011. The surface is pastelbord, and the size of the piece is 8×10.

I really love pastelbord the more I use it.  There really is no comparison with pastel paper of any sort.  Not only is pastelbord a solid, thick surface, but the actual surface itself is gritty and has plenty of tooth to pick up the oil pastels with.
