ART STUDENTS THIS IS
YOUR ART GALLERY
I'm thinking we're all art students no matter how advanced or inexperienced we may be. There is so much to learn and experiment with and techniques to acquire or even invent!
I believe that being an artist is a most incredible way to travel along your life's journey. I'm so grateful to be one.
It's my pleasure to offer you the opportunity to add images of your work on this website for the world to see.
"The story for “Sam’s Light”...my son at the beach.
The source material for this drawing was a photo taken 8 years ago that caught my son Sam in a most joyful expression, soaking in the sun on a warm summer day, not a care in the world. The light shone on and through him.
It was drawn on 110 lb paper with graphite pencils 2B to 9B.
This drawing won a 1st place award in an art contest.
Gary accepts requests for commissioned work.

The Three Toddlers
- by Gary Mulhall
"The story on Wendy’s boys – This was my first commissioned piece for a friend of my Mother’s.
Wendy has 3 sons who are in their 20’s now.
There is an age difference of 6 years or so from the oldest to the youngest.
She wanted a drawing showing them as a group, reflecting how they may appear together at the same age.
I placed the oldest in the center, the two younger ones behind as if to show the younger ones they were under the protection of the eldest.
She was very happy indeed with the final piece.
It was a graphite drawing using B through to 9B."
Flexibility in Life - by Gary Mulhall
"I drove past this tree many times and it seemed to catch my attention each time.
I would reflect on how the tree had managed to survive the years. How the posture of the tree reflected a great truth to me; there is strength in being flexible in life. We are better able to weather the storms, as it were, without breaking and cracking.
This was my first real effort with charcoal, and I enjoyed the contrasts it allowed for."
This sensitive drawing was done by Gary Mulhall.
I am attaching my latest piece, it is called “Light Her”, a picture of my wife’s Grandmother, an English woman who recently passed away in her 90’s. She was full of character, life and a very proud woman (in a good way). I hope you enjoy.
Gary's passion is to work with graphite and charcoal.
Some of my art students are just gob-smacked by this man's talents!

"This is for a young lady who's getting married in May.
I did this for her shower gift."
Well, it is certainly romantic. I love the whole feel of it.
The colours are lovely too!
BA. McDonald whipped this little canvas up in a day!
What lovely tulips!
I'll bet they're from Ottawa's Tulip Festival!
BA. McDonald worked from a photograph of her grandsons.
Notice the light and the lovely ripple effects in the water.
What a wonderful painting!
Brings back childhood memories.
Many of my art students have commented on this painting. Well done!
BA. McDonald painted this for a lady who had a baby boy last year.

"In December my friend's daughter got married with the Phantom of the Opera theme and I used her wedding invitation for this..."
I'm saving a spot for the next student's artwork!
