Painting of my Daughter

Lucyscowl Featured

This is a painting study attempting to capture a bit of my 2 year old daughters personality.  Recently, when told ‘no’ or scolded, she shoots back this disapproving scowl with a furled brow that will take you off guard if you aren’t expecting it.  If you return the same look back at her, she will begin to crack a smile …

Butcher block kitchen island

Island Featured

Our kitchen.  This space in the house was one of the few spaces that we have done nothing with since we moved into our house.  The previous owners did all new cabinets and carved out a decent pantry space plus put in a new oven, but they left the old blue/brown laminate counter tops there for us.

Painting of my oldest daughter

ben drolet portrait

This is a painting that I did of my daughter as a junior bridesmaid at a friends wedding.  I chose the parchment background early, but as the painting went on I think it was too rough and rustic for such a gentle subject.  For the final I chose to put it on a white background instead and I think it …

Magazine Cover Painting

BSTQ Cover Large

Sometimes, you have an idea, and send a sketch to the editor and they tear it apart, pass it around, and change the whole thing with stuff like ‘lets add in some people, different diverse cultures cause we can’t look racist’ or ‘we love it, we just want to change a few things’ and then you end up with a …

This is a simple illustration that I did for a friend for her 15th anniversary.  She sent me some pictures from her wedding that I used to do the illustration.  They wanted the quote “We’re all a little weird.

Rustic Wood Bench

Ben Drolet Farmhouse Bench 3

Here is the wood bench that I built to match the Rustic Wood Table that I built in February.  I was originally going to build the bench side by side with the table, but the main table was a great deal of work and I wanted to take a break for a bit before finishing it.  This would also give …
