It’s a new year and I am back to work on a new small painting! I’ve roughed in the first layer of paint and spent an hour adding detail to just the eye. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4.” Will post the finished piece soon!
Quick post today- lots going on and I’ll have plenty to share on here later so be on the lookout. The 3-person exhibition that I currently have at Barrister’s Gallery in New Orleans recently received a great write-up in the Gambit Weekly. Eric Bookhardt attended our exhibit, “Visions of the Unnatural World,” and gave us a positive review which you can check out here: www.bestofneworleans.com/blogofneworleans/archives/2012/05/15/review-new-works-at-barristers-gallery. The show is currently up through June 2nd.
After much digging through photos and picking the “best” ones to post, I am finally posting one of my latest paintings. This is another addition to my In Our Veins series titled Cornucopia. (Totally a coincidence on the timing, given it is the week of Thanksgiving.) It is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 8″ high and is available through Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX. I’ve documented my painting during my process and have a few photos to share. I apologize for the poor quality except for the very last photo- which was professionally done. I’m not the best with a digital camera, but feel that these photos still get the point across. Just click the images below for a larger view.
My latest painting from my “In Our Veins” series is finished! The title of this piece is “Symbiotic” and it is an acrylic on canvas, 11″w x 14″h. I took photos as I went along to give some insight into my process of painting. I started with an initial sketch directly onto the canvas. After laying out the placement of all the animals and the tree roots, I started my first rough layer of paint. Then I continued to build upon the painting with several more layers, working a “section” at a time, each getting more detailed along the way.
