Newer Painting

In a effort to slowly repost the stuff that got deleted, I’ll be putting stuff up as I remember what’s missing.

Here’s a painting I was working on a few days ago. I’ve got the Halloween fever. Bad.

Oil on canvas

Late night sketch

I keep going back and forth on this new sketchbook I got for Christmas. It’s a Stillman & Birn beta series book. I’m a huge fan of the alpha ones as my workhorse sketchbook, this one I’m not so sure of. Here is a sketch I did in watercolor in that book. Maybe I’m wrong only more work will tell.   

Back to a Regular Schedule

Summer is over , the significant other is back at work and the distractions are all gone. Let see, what has been going on since the last time I posted? The freelance stuff I’ve been doing is keeping busy, well I wish I was more busy with that. Eh. We took a family vacation to my aunts place on the east coast, the place we stayed at was right on the lake. I’ve done several painting from that trip. Here is a couple of them.

Sitting near the lake at night it is amazing how far the reflections of the lights across the lake seem to travel across it. These are two studies the will and have eventually turn into bigger paintings.

Here is a color study for a painting I’ve just started.


Here is the painting. It’s pretty much ready for the color phase.


Aside from that I’ve made a bunch of bbq, grew my own jalapeños and tried to stay out of the heat as much as I could.



Some October Stuff

Here is some of the stuff I’ve done in October. I need to stop neglecting this blog.

New Small Painting

Here is a small 5×7 oil painting I did. I’ve been painting a bunch of these at this size. Too much fun.



Here is a small piece I did to restart the machine. It’s gouache on mat board. Happy December.
