A few photos of my current painting in progress. I have not decided on a title yet, but can say that it is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. These are a few shots of the beginning stages taking it from a sketch on paper to the first few layers of paint, focusing on the sky.
I’ve recently finished two new paintings in my In Our Veins series. Encroach is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” It serves as a subtle commentary on human intervention in nature while illustrating the connection of the natural world to all life. Reciprocal is the latest addition to the smaller series of paintings within In Our Veins. It is also an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” Reciprocal conveys the connection to nature by linking flora and fauna and uses the ribbon to continue the recent theme exploring anonymity versus connection.
I’m happy to announce that my work has been selected for the 2017 Laluzapalooza at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, California. I’m honored to be among the 64 international artists chosen for this exhibition. The exhibit will run March 3rd through April 2, 2017. Pre-sales are open now online http://laluzdejesus.com/laluzapalooza-2017/ for those that want to get a head start. There will be an Artist Preview on Thursday, March 2nd, 7-10pm and the public opening reception will be on Friday, March 3rd from 8-11pm.
Evolution of another painting I currently have in progress. It started out as just a little sketch on the corner of an envelope (because you never know when inspiration will strike.) Then the initial rough layer of paint on canvas and a close-up detail of a ram in progress. Acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” I’ll post the finished painting soon- in the meantime, the rest of this series can be found here.
I’ve just finished two new paintings in my In Our Veins series. The first is titled Ascension, an acrylic on canvas, 8″ wide by 8″ high. The second painting is part of my smaller series at 4″ by 4.” The title is Evolution and it’s also an acrylic on canvas. View the paintings online here and here.
I’ve recently finished some new work in my In Our Veins series. Dissociate is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ wide by 6″ high. Lately I’ve been exploring the “opposite” of many paintings in this series. Whereas in previous paintings, I relied on eyes and facial expressions to convey a sense of connection, these recent works show animals without faces or covered faces. Anonymity vs. connection- without seeing their faces, does that make them any less personable? Meaningful? And how does this apply on a global scale? These are some of the questions I’m working on with these and future paintings.
