Tomorrow's the day...

February 6, 2015
All my work is packed up and ready to head over to the gallery tomorrow morning. I managed to pull together 19 pieces for At Odds End and I'm pretty happy with how everything turned out. Of the 19, about half are new or previously unshown pieces, which I feel really good about given the tough year I had with my health. Very excited to see the work up and lit. I'll be posting with insights into a few of the pieces in the upcoming weeks, so check back!


 

Long week.

September 21, 2014
Had an incredibly tough week. Had five migraines in as many days and another this morning. So I only managed about an hour of painting this week. I worked on the underpainting for "Liberation." Despite the rough week, I'm still pretty jazzed about this painting. I think I'll still be able to pull this show off even though I'll be cutting it really close.

Scumbling Left Handed

September 14, 2014
Had a physically exhausting day yesterday, so my body hurts pretty bad today, but I managed to get a good two hours of painting in anyway. I'm feeling really excited about the giant painting I'm working on and I think that excitement is what helped me get my ass up to do it. Lots of large areas of scumbling today, which is particularly exhausting on my arm. Good news though, I'm getting better at it with my left hand!


Today, I had just intended to put the sketch on (in charcoal) but was able ...

The Biggest Painting Ever

September 7, 2014
So, on a whim I started the largest painting that I have ever attempted. I will be called "Liberation" and is an updated attempt at a painting I did when I was 17, before I learned the skills that I have now. I'm really excited about it an hope that I can finish it in time for the show. I don't have the exact dimensions but here are some pics of it in my studio.

Tough week, good day.

August 31, 2014


It was a rough week for me. I missed two days of work and spent nearly every minute I was home in bed. I didn't get a bit of painting or drawing done until today. Today has been great so far! I've put in an hour session of painting earlier and had minimal pain. I put on a podcast, put my head down and put some paint on the canvas. Currently, I'm reworking the painting A Privilege of Madness, which was a semi-incomplete painting from my thesis show two years ago. I stripped the varnish from it...
