Old Friends

I was hunting for an interesting illustration to post for Peculiar Pictures when these two paintings fell out of an old portfolio. They aren’t much, but they do bring back memories. These little pictures were painted in oil on scraps of canvas. They are small enough for me to place in my scanner without resorting to photography. Both are dated on the reverse—1966—back when I was fourteen years old. For better or worse, they are my oldest surviving paintings. Check them out (here).



  1. that is pretty cool...i was rather into art through high school...and won a few contests back then...its fun to pull out some of my old work...i was dabbling in most every style i could as well...watercolor was def a fav of mine though

  2. Very cool paintings! I loved art when I was in school. Drawing was my thing, but I haven't done it in so long I probably would be hard pressed to draw a stick person!
