Infinite Planet

 Been playing with this one for a while.  It finally gelled last night!

I also used regular pencil in this one.

I really like the results.

See the "labels" for media.

8.5 x 11 in.

This is only ink and color pencil on orange/yellow ochre acid-free cardstock paper and is smaller than most:  5 x 7.

Did it all today!

Thanks for looking!

 This on feels very sedate. So I tried to work the angles to give it a little umpff. 

Same 8.5 x 11 (can easily be framed in a 8 x 10 mat.

Acrylic and color pencil and ink on colored paper.

My Art Work Space

First off, I'd like to mention that this post is in honor of my pal, Hal Weaver who says he likes to see other artist work space!
This is a corner of the living room of my decent sized apartment.  I try to spend about an hour here right after working 10+ hours.  With a beer and some cool music.
I've had the box with the colorpencils for 20 years.

Comments Welcome.

That's our fat cat, Kelly.  She is very sweet. And Lazy!

I posted this up on FB and FineArt America a few days ago.

I like the mass of brownish green and all the subtle designs in and around it.

This is the first from a new batch of acrylic work.

This Is My Card

I just started a fresh batch! 
8 or 9 new acrylics on paper!
Even started the pencil on some.

ON top of working 55-60 hr per week.

I am tired.

This is a one-of-a-kind business card...

Dying in the Breeze

found an old 12 x 12 acrylic on color paper and was inspired to add more.  And trim it to 8.5 x 11.

I really like this because it has black color pencil which fools some people.  Not to mention that it is generally odd to have anything on gray paper.

An Untitled but Important (to me) Sketch

(c)2009 Ralf Schulze
This piece has been kicking around the apartment for 3 years and I like it but never know if it is good, or finished, or worth saving.  But I just now decided that it has actually influenced some of my recent stuff in a subtle way. 

It is abstract, yet landscapey.

it is pencil and color pencil (on light gray 8.5 x 11 paper) and I consider it a sketch.

Sub Terra

Been more than a week since I posted a new piece.  I hope you like it, I do, and I had fun with the squiggles on the bottom!

Same old 8.5" x 11" colored acid-free card stock paper with Acrylic paint and Colored pencils and ink... my favorite combo of media recently.

I like to include the paint only pic in these posts, so see below!
