harlequin 5

latest in the series of harlequins
i've been doing.  16x20" acrylic
on canvas.  generally i like the way
my paintings end up looking when
i paint on canvas but i really don't enjoy the
process so much.  too much tooth to fight
against.  maybe i need to try a smoother
canvas and see if i like it...

mask #2

the second little cropped face painting.
this one's a bit smaller 8x10", and involves more than
2 colors.  like this one too.
more to come...

i've been thinking about doing a series of close up cropped faces for
awhile now.  done a few drawings and this is the first
painting.  don't imagine they will all be monochrome,
but i like this one.

Well, here goes nothing...

So i've been threatening to get another web site up and running for months now and can't seem to manage to find the time or motivation to make it happen.  instead i think i'll give this blogging thing a try.  not as easy to see a bunch of pieces together on one page but at least it will give me a chance to get some images of new work out there for anyone who's interested in seeing it and if i decide to blabber on about anything i'll have a venue for that as well.  so here we go...
this is one of the fairly recent paintings.  underpainting/sketch on the bottom and finished painting on the top.  still experimenting with a more muted palette and a less pointillistic paint handling.  not sure if either will hang around for long. but that's where i am right now.
