Winter Spruce


This winter, I’ve really enjoyed zooming in past Alaska’s insane landscapes and focusing on nature’s small details. Winter Spruce is a personal piece based on those details.

I featured the making of this painting in my January walkthrough on Patreon, including my references photos and salt wash techniques at www.patreon.com/arogers907. If you like peeking behind the scenes – or just want to help me do more of what I love – consider chipping in a buck or two. You might be surprised at how much it helps.

Canvas prints of Winter Spruce are available in the shop.

The original work is available for purchase. Contact me for more information.

Run Along Now


A long-time friend recommended I submit a piece for an upcoming artshow at the annual conference for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

The show is themed around the prompt: “Now run along, and don’t get into mischief.” Armed with that prompt as my guide, I painted Run Along Now.

A full walkthrough including my early sketches, references, and pencil work is available for patrons at www.patreon.com/arogers907. If you like peeking behind the scenes – or just want to help me do more of what I love – consider chipping in a buck or two. You might be surprised at how much it helps.

Potty Break


This painting was created for my October show “Outdoor Adventure” at the Trax Outdoor Center in Fairbanks, Alaska. Trees are one of the most relaxing things for me to paint, and nothing says ‘Alaska’ quite like a Sitka spruce! =)

The Goliath and her Halfling


Seattle friends Rand and Geraldine shared a story about their Dungeons & Dragons characters that cracked me up and stuck in my brain.

He plays a love-struck Halfling thief. Geraldine plays the object of his affection, a titanic Goliath barbarian. The rogue’s unrequited love is lost on the barbarian, but she finds him adorable like a little pet and carries him around in her backpack.
