some sketches



some recent sketches.
still pursuing that unattainable
goal of "loosening up".
these are satisfyingly loose,
but boy is it a struggle...

Self Portrait




The evolution of a self portrait.
I love being able to go back in
time and see the different incarnations
of a painting.  The problem is I
forget most times to take progress
pictures as I am painting.  I like
where this one ended up, but I'm
surprised that i also like where it started
with just one quick loose
application of paint....

Painting again...


Well, after a long and frustrating forced hiatus I've finally
managed to get myself into the studio on a fairly regular basis
over the past month or so.  Which means I finally have some new
stuff to show anyone who might be interested in seeing it.  I'm
going to try and keep updating the blog with new and old stuff
on a more regular basis, but my true goal is to have a new
bonafide website up and running by early next year (by mardi gras,
come hell or high water!).
This is one of the first pieces I did when I started pushing
paint around again.  it was a conscious decision on my part
to change things up.  To get looser and hopefully a bit more
expressive.  I'm pretty happy with it and I'm excited about
the direction it's leading my art.
More to come soon...
