Art Photos '80-'89
Pencil, acrylic, etc., sketched on prepared analogue black & white photo achieved by dodging, leaving negative areas to draw on. These were pre-Photoshop artworks, done by hand and nothing digital. Reproduction Rights and Hand-signed Prints on Canvas, Clay-coated and Arches-France Papers, are for sale.
Quick thumbnails or more serious sketches were a carry-over of college discipline. This I do before I undertake a painting either with acrylics or oils or even just for pastel compositions. This is the reason why I have accumulated a lot of sketches which I kept in my wooden cabinet, an inheritance from my mother who fancied old style pieces of furniture . . only to realize in the end, that these sketches prove to be the art pieces I now hold dear. Now, I know, it is in these sketches that my th...
Inkjet prints of drawings and photos I did in my garden that I cut and pasted on vellum paper, then, worked on it again adding more drawings and colors - - definitely, an exciting way of discovering things via this technique.
Cogon-Abaca Drawings '82
Upon my Dad's suggestion to tour the Philippines in place of creating artworks having noticed that I was already a workoholic, I finally gave in and dropped my tools to go on a long journey hopping from one island to another of the 7 thousand plus islands in the Philippines.

I fell in love with the place and its weather and spent a few months there. Not having any art...
Not so much of what I imagine a "cosmic-scape" could be, but more on the possibilities of what any drawing tool can lead me to, e.g.: a quick mathematical progression from small to large doodle can make a futuristic-scape exhibiting a foreground, middle-ground and a background. These pencil-pastel sketches are the result of this creative thought and of course, its variations.
Glenn's Oil on Canvas / 2006-07
Spiritual landscapes that continue to haunt and revisit me, both awake and in my dreams, better expressed on large-format canvases to lessen or shorten this, seemingly, never ending journey, leading me to my Maker.
A series of "Nudescapes" I worked on for about a year in a collage manner fusing both the digital and the analog approaches. Although really involved in this particular creative process, I always had behind my mind to do this in a bigger scale but failed to, simply because I couldn't stop exhausting the possibilities of what that "collage and drawing approach" could offer. Created artworks onwards but opted to do bigger oils on canvas until the year 2007. What I overlooked to do is still at the...
