Snowy Mountain Digital Color Sketch

Another digital sketch. Working in Painter enables me to quickly paint out a color reference which is very handy when I get around to doing a final painting.

Pirate Cave Digital Sketch

I started messing around with painter again after work. I wanted to work on some extreme lighting. This is what I came up with. A pirate navigating through a dark cave.

Tuscan-inspired Plaster Finish

I just finished this Tuscan-inspired plaster finish for a kitchen and eat-in area. I use several different paint and plaster mixtures, and then layer and blend them together to create the effect. Visit Stivers Art for more.

Tuscan Wine Room

Some old clients of mine called me to help transform this old mud room into a tuscan wine room. I painted some exposed stone, cracks in the wall, ivy, and some alcoves with vases to complete the transformation.

Another view of the twirling ink mural.
A fun mural overlooking the creative department with drips, splatters, and circles.

Another view of the circle mural. 
I just completed a project working on the new office spaces for Leapfrog Interactive's Louisville offices. There were a couple of murals and a large finish that added a lot of character and style to the space.

The Young Knight vs. the Fat-Bellied Bull Dragon

I tried to get a little more complicated this time out with Painter. There is really no substitute for the real thing, but there is a lot of creative freedom that working digitally allows. It is just so easy to try different things without losing the work you have already done, I'm really enjoying it. I call this one "The Young Knight versus the Fat-Bellied Bull Dragon."

Gary the Robot

Well, this is a little better. Still working with the Wacom tablet and figuring out Painter. There is a lot of stuff to learn. I am trying to keep things loose and natural looking with these. This is Gary the Robot.

First Corel Painter Illustration

So I finally got around to getting a Wacom tablet and Corel Painter. It was a nice Christmas present. This is my first attempt at digital illustration. I am trying to recreate the look of my "Nighttime for the Mariner" paintings. Not a bad first attempt. I am not crazy about it though.

Graffiti Mural

The teen who this was painted for designed the initials and spray can artwork. I took that initial design and came up with something to fill the rest of the wall. I then painted faux cinderblock and graffitied the wall up.

Cupcake Mural

Some really cute stripes and cupcakes I painted for a nursery. The design was inspired by their bedding.Nurseries seem to be popular lately. I've still been working a lot on commercial projects, for which I have nothing to show. So please enjoy these tasty treats.

Genealogy Paintings

Some personal paintings I did. Using old family photos as reference from the early 1900's to the 50's. I am working on some commercial projects at the moment that I don't have any images of, so this will have to do for now.
