I am now focusing on learning to paint portraits, exploring graphite, pastels, oil and maybe watercolor. Watch my progress here.
My first try was this one of my Dad in graphite..it came out so good, won 1st place in competition, but I was scared for 6 years to try again..the bar was set too high. I finally got brave enough to try again....and have enjoyed striving for improvement since.

My first portrait in oil, it was a great learning piece! Gabrielle Moore oil 24x30
