All I want to do

This is a piece that was just accepted into a juried show in South Louisiana that I painted of my youngest daughter. She loves basketball and an excellent student. I asked her what she wanted to do with her life, her reply was, "Daddy all I want to do is sit outside and pet my kitties." That's my girl, Ha.

About Dave Ivey

I started drawing when I was in elementary school and have been fascinated by it ever since. I draw and sketch consistently today. Drawing is the foundation of all my paintings. Having been a editorial artist early in my career helped me hone my drawing skills which I continually strive to improve to this day capturing the enviroment that surrounds me.  Many of my paintings today are birthed from the rural lifestyle that my wife and I enjoy.

I paint every day as a commitment to myself to perfect the God given abilities I have been blessed with.  Painting is what I love and long to be doing when I am not doing it. This is passion that I don’t intend on neglecting, but nurturing for the rest of my life
