My wife, Anita and I went to the Chapel at Fairchild Air Force Base this morning and we found a painting Of mine entitled, “Passover Lamb”! This piece was featured in last year’s Terrain 12 event and has now found a permanent home at Fairchild AFB Chapel! Thank you all for making this happen: Chaplain Bishop, Chaplain Ritter, Fairchild AFB Chapel, congregation and Chapel staff! #TeamFairchild #Terrain Spokane Arts #AdobeDraw
A while back I asked my wife Anita to dress up as Frida and pose for me so I could take some photos as a reference for a painting. This portrait is the result. I gave it to her for her birthday. She gave it the title, “Mis Raíces”.
Cuauhtémoc also known as Cuauhtemotzín, Guatimozín or Guatémoc; c. 1495) was the Aztec ruler (tlatoani) of Tenochtitlan from 1520 to 1521, making him the last Aztec Emperor. The name Cuauhtémoc means “Descending Eagle” or “one who has descended like an eagle” (As it swoops down on its prey).
I painted this portrait of my father-in-law, Chano De la Rosa (May he Rest In Peace) a few month ago, but I wanted to mention him this Father’s Day as a great example of a father, father-in-law, grandfather and a true man of God. It was a common sight to see him reading the Word of God. I know he is rejoicing now with our Heavenly Father! “Like a father feels compassion for his children— that’s how the LORD feels compassion for those who honor him.” Psalms 103:13
As part of my continuing tribute to Spokane area Veterans, This portrait is to honor my fellow veteran, close personal friend and brother in Christ, Bennett Traylor (Tray).
I met Tray twenty years ago at the Base Chapel at Fairchild Air Force Base after I returned from a deployment.
I’ve continually been impressed with Tray’s willingness to help others, his outgoing personality and cheerful disposition even in adverse situations. I admire him not only for his service to our country, but his ongoing service to our veterans in the community through the VA and also to me personally. This portrait is a small token of my appreciation for all he does! God bless you brother, Tray!
I made this portrait of Sitting Bull on my iPad Pro with Adobe Draw in Woodcut style.
Sitting Bull was a Hunkpapa Lakota leader who defeated General George Armstrong Custer during the Battle of Little BigHorn.
He led his people during years of resistance to United States government policies. He was killed by Indian agency police on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation during an attempt to arrest him, at a time when authorities feared that he would join the Ghost Dance movement.
