The site that I use to print my work is Pixels, and they recently added this new feature that allows you to view the art on a wall at various sizes. I love this feature because not only does it let the viewer get a decent idea of what an artwork might look like on their own wall, but it gives me the artist a chance to display different artworks together. Some of my art are stand alone pieces, but some are done in a series.
Anyway, I thought I’d share three of my portraits using this new feature. In this example they are sized at 16×20. These three portraits can be found here.

This is my newest artwork, an animal portrait of an Arctic Fox. I have plans to eventually paint big scenes and landscapes with animals, but for now I just love painting portraits, both human and animal. This little fox was so adorable, how could I not paint him! I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of portraits. I also made a video of me doing this digital painting, so I’ll post that later for those interested in watching the process.
Prints are available here.
It has been a while since I’ve posted one of my artworks, and this one may seem a bit familiar to anyone that has watched this blog over the year. This is a digital painting portrait where I’ve recently added some updates. I also have the black and white version without the clown make-up and hair ribbon.
This portrait was actually a redo of a painting I did about 8 years ago. Sometimes I enjoy going back to old pictures and ideas and completely redoing them to see if I’m able to improve them. I made a video showing the old version in comparison to this new one, and I’ll make sure to add that to a blog post later today.
Prints available here.
Here is a recent digital painting of a cardinal on a branch. It was done in a more painterly style, and I’ll add it to my collection of animal pictures.
I recently uploaded our 500th image at Murdock’s Gallery! And, I’m not stopping at 500! We definitely plan to add a lot more over the year. You can expect to see more photographs, personal artworks, illustrations and videos.
What to expect this year, well for those interested, I plan to continue my animal series, and it will ultimately turn into far more than just a series. I have enough animal and wildlife illustrations planned to eventually make a separate portfolio page just for these images. It is something I really enjoy drawing/painting at the moment, and I’m fully embracing it.
I’m also working as an illustrator for an author who has a year long project planned. At the moment I’m not sure exactly what I can say, but as I get permission, I’ll see if I can eventually share some of the sketches and finished work. Stay tuned for more info about that in the summer.
Along with my animal/wildlife series, I’d also like to begin working more heavily on illustrations for my own personal story that I began writing during Nanowrimo last November.
And last but not least, I definitely plan to continue photography, but I’m also planning to do some videos of my photograph adventures.
Hopefully by the end of the year I’ll be posting another message saying I’ve reached 750.
This is a digital art painting of a leopard resting her head on her legs as she tries to nap.
