Punta Cana

These are a few quick sketches I did in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic where I was vacationing the past week with my family. The first one is at the pool-bar where the bar stools are underwater; all bars should be like this.
The second one is of the beach outside our resort hotel; there is an old ship-wreck about a mile out from the beach. My niece, Grace, is in the lower left hand corner.
The third one is at Suana Island- about 2 1/2 hours from our hotel, and features my Dad, who turned 70 this month. The water here is amazingly clear and warm. Apparently, this is where they filmed the Blue Lagoon. About half-way out to the island is an area of water in the ocean which is really shallow and clear- it only goes up to your waist- it's really interesting.

Samuel Leroy Jackson

This is the Samuel L. Jackson painting I did for Faces and Names (159 w. 54th St.) last Fall. I just got a good print from "Baboo" which is my new photo and printing place. No more Duggal- they're much too expensive and didn't give me what I wanted last time.
This is oil on wood and I think it's 3' x 4'.
He's one of my favorite actors; I hope he can come in and see it...

Preliminary drawings of Stones

Here's a couple of preliminary drawings I did for the Stones painting of a couple of years ago. I have to search for the other ones...
