April 2010


This is a photo taken into Corel Painter and turned into a painting. I am learning to paint water and oil in Photoshop and enjoying it. I use Photoshop extended and really looking forward to CS5 which is supposed to be loaded with some new tremendous features.

Andrea gave me a photo of Tod Bertuzzi when he was a Canuck. No, he not a Canuck any longer but he was a big part of one of the most feared lines in the NHL along with Naslund and Morrison. Things went wrong for him and the team after he knocked out Moore with one punch. I remember the years well when Tod was with the Canucks and I wish him the best with Detroit. Thanks Andrea.

I have a considerable amount of work I have done and it will be online soon. I am writing the web site now and it should be completed by the end of April. Stay tuned.heffleylake_painting_webThis is a photo of Heffley Lake which I brought into Painter to produce this painting.

Yes it has been ten months of intense learning but well worth it. The Computer Graphics Program was two years of study condensed into 10 months. I now enter my 6 weeks of practicum and I have employment when that’s finished.
