    Long time member here. Some of you may know me, most of you don't. Even fewer of you actually have seen my artwork. I've mostly kept it to myself all these many years, but I have recently made a resolution (with some encouraging from my fiance) to start sharing more of my artwork online and with the world.

    I went and started a Deviant Art page, and I want to eventually put up an Instagram and my own website. I only have a few submissions on DA at present, but check it out and see what you think. I'll also attach something to this post.

    https://ljrockarts.deviantart.com/

    My art is something that has always been very personal to me, and it has taken a lot for me to get to the point of feeling comfortable to share it with folks. I'm no professional artist, but it's something that I love. It's fun and it's a part of who I am. I hope some of you take the time to check it out and enjoy it. Let me know if you have any feedback (please be kind!) Thank you.

    Thank you, John. Thanks to all of you who took time to check out my art. I really appreciate all the positive feedback I've been getting. It took me a long time to build up the nerve to start sharing my stuff; I appreciate all of the encouragement. :D

    Here is something new I've been working on. Haven't posted it anywhere yet, but I likely will soon.

    So far the previous piece that I posted here called "The Red Swimsuit" seems to be getting the most attention of all the artwork I've posted on line. I'm not sure exactly what the appeal is. Always interesting to note what grabs people's attention; it's often not what I would suspect.

    Here is the latest thing I've posted, for which I decided to utilize a couple of different color treatments as well as share the original outline/sketch. Hope you enjoy. :D

    Happy New Year, everyone! Hope all is well with all of you. It's been a while since I've been able to work on any art, seeing as my family and I were super busy over the holidays, but I'm looking forward to getting back to it and working on lots of new pieces in 2018. :D

    I decided I needed another pinup style piece to add to my collection, so I cranked this one out as quickly as I could today. Took me a couple hours with a sizable break in between. Wish I had more time to draw and create art - I just have to try and use what time I have the best I can for now. Hope you all enjoy. ;)

    Here's one that I cranked out fairly quickly this evening. I try to do a little something everyday if I can. Hope you all like it. ;)
