Some stuff to look at!

I know I haven't updated the blog for a bit, slow computer issues coupled with moving back to school but anywho...






















Portrait of Katie O'Dell

acrylic with soft and oil pastel on canvas

2ft by 3ft

































This painting is the 5th in my natural perception series. The colour is thick on the canvas with enchanting scratches in the textural surface. This piece was sold in a burnt wood frame, but I didn't get a picture of the painting in the frame but its similar to the frame on the Megan Sellstrom portrait.






Spirit of the Bull

acrylic on canvas

2ft by 3ft





































This painting was an experiment trying to further the drizzled paint technique. Lots of layers on this piece, some of the layers were burned with my torch so it has a wonderful bubbling effect in areas. I went on top of the drizzled paint with glazes and then established more high key tones on top of those.




















































This piece was commissioned for the fella holding the painting. This is a Dope-Ah-Mean but before I cute the canvas and stretch it, I use the canvas as a drop cloth beneath me while I paint. I used this drop cloth for about a month or so and then cut it up and stretched/burnt it. This is the second drop cloth Dope-Ah-Mean I have done, I'll post the first soon. Oh and I can't remember what I named it, but it is 2.5ft by 3ft.







A Walk of the Wolfmother

16in by 20in (ish)

acrylic on glass



This piece is interesting because the figure of the woman is painted on the front of the sheet of glass while the environment she walks in is painted on the reverse side. So when a glare hits the glass it stops for the figure pushing her off the surface even more.










These are two more of the large big eyed archling guys using the drizzled paint with glazes technique. I sold them both and when I did I'm sure I named them something poetic but the name escapes me right now...















Blind Contour

Portrait of Collin Kelly

acrylic on canvas

2ft by 2ft
















































Blind Contour

Portrait of Jim Mauer



acrylic on canvas

2ft by 2ft





























This is part of my blind contour paintings series. This is of an artist friend of my mine in New Orleans, he also purchased the painting. I guess he liked it! But as I got done with this one a fella came by, really liked this portrait and wanted one of himself. It was the first portrait I've done of someone on the street like that but it came out good as well.
