Liam, The Turtle, and The Frog




My hiatus is almost over. I know, it took a long time to start some new personal work. But I really needed the trips, the family time and the rest. It's been amazing. And now I am beginning a new series of paintings, and I have big plans for them. I draw inspiration from my son Liam. He brings joy to everyone w/ his spirit and enthusiasm. Having this time w/ him, at this age, and watching him grow into his character has been unreal. Anyways, anxious to bust out the oils and start painting. I'll post the finished ptg. when I'm done, but it'll probably be awhile, since I'm going back to work on Tuesday.

Pat this drawing is so great. You are unbelievably talented, and I love how Liam gives you inspiration for your latest work.

Pat,
I am happy to hear that you are getting back into painting. You have excelled so amazingly in character design and storyboarding, and it is good to see you revisit your roots. I also think that creating a painting of Liam or maybe even a family characterture painting woud suffice your urge... I am confident that whatever you do will be a great addition to your collection. P.S.-Jeff (my friend of course) wanted to know if you can make him a tatoo design, but that may be pushin it...

This is adorable. Hey lets write a children's book inspired by Liam!
Seriously. I think it would be a hit.
