Hello, my name's Dave, and my current day job is tutoring college level math, physics, and statistics. Though I like my job (I help people by pushing a pen at a junior college - there are worse ways to make a living), it's art that's always made me smile. I paint portraits and pin-up, though I think that a more accurate claim is that I try to bridge the gap between the two. I work from photographs and am hoping to find Arizona models who I can work with. Though I've always done art, I only started focusing on portrait and pin-up about 5 years ago and my portfolio's not large enough yet to justify having my own website, but you can see a little more of my work at deviantArt.com under the user name dlapastel.
