I’m L. Lawrence Bispo, and I’m a fine artist, occasional illustrator and a continuing student of art. I’m just now launching my professional career as an artist of portraits and Southwestern art, and this is where I’ll post my work as it heads hopefully off to market. I’ll also sometimes show work in progress, or post demonstrations of particular traditional techniques I’m learning or utilizing. The posts here will not usually be long or in-depth ones, unless I’m describing complex techniques. I author another blog, sunsikell.wordpress.com, in which I describe my adventures making and using my own traditional pigments and inks, and my thoughts about various aspects of art and art materials, and the posts there are more verbose.

Please feel free to comment upon any post or work of art here. Welcome, and thanks for looking!
