Colorblind


















"She only painted women deshabille: A waitress from a cafĂ© on Rue Madelaine who complained of disrobing in the cold, a dancer from McHattie’s who smoked thin brown cheroots, held impossible poses, feral stares."

Read my little story Colorblind in the August Blue Five Notebook

Painting: Julius Rolshoven, 'Nude Reading A Sketchbook', oil, c. 1900.

Once Upon A Time






















This 2002 drawing, Once Upon A Time, isn't for sale, but over the years a number of folks have asked about prints.  I recently removed the drawing from its mat and frame for a high resolution scan, and prints are now available here: http://fineartamerica.com/products/once-upon-a-time-mark-reep-art-print.html  Hover over the image at FAA for a full resolution preview. 

For those interested in technique: I stippled the foreground, path, and tree with Sakura Pigma Micron pens; and stippled the castle and background with graphite pencils.  Working time was around 120 hours.
