These are some artist trading cards I recently painted for a group called Enchanted Orlando. They are all in India ink, on paper, the size of baseball cards. It's funny how the tiny size of these works of art make them seem fun, like somehow you are creating toys or some secret message.

This painting is 16x20" done in water soluble oils. It's called "I Choose Hope" and it has those words scribbled in paint over and over again on the lower half of the painting. I was really interested in conveying light...choosing to look at light, at hope instead of the opposite. The image was originally taken from a reference photo of a sunset that I abstracted into an emotional landscape.
