THANKS GUYS! YOU ARE THE BEST.

I don't know how back I am, but I'll try to do something every month or two, thanks to the support you guys give me. THANKS.






This is my new piece, it is 11x14" and doesn't have a name yet. It is a small, simple piece but I like that about it.


Thanks everyone!

THANKS EVERYONE!!



The craziest thing I know of is painting hard-edged modern architecture on velvet. Ever time I start one I question my own sanity.

I swore I'd never do another one of these, but a very nice guy, Lee, has been after me for some time. He's an architect himself and his enthusiasm convinced me.






I started these sketches last November. Lee wants the bedroom turret from the Albert Frey house.





I did the sketch on the upper left when I was not quite in the mood, so it didn't turn out. The bottom right one turned out better.





Lee has this sketch right now to approve. The tiki is gonna be a different one. It's vague, but that's a pool on the right with a moai on the far right.

Hi Robb, beautiful work, I'm so happy you are back to posting here. Before you do a black velvet painting you sketch it out on black paper with pastels or colored pencils? When I do a black velvet painting I keep a bright light shining on the surface. I also take flash photographs so I can see all the faint areas. Do you do that? Wendy

That's nuts. The small painting looks great though.

Nice work, Robb.
