Prints Again

without comments

Picked up test strips of art prints today.  I’ve been enjoying playing with changes in scale on prints, and I think I may try blowing another of my smaller pieces up.

Upcoming Art Show in Austin

without comments

It sounds like I’m going to be doing an art show this spring with Austin’s friendly neighborhood sex shop, Forbidden Fruit.  I’m going to be bringing out a few of my older pieces for this one, especially if they let me display prints.  I’ve been hoping to pull off something new too, though honestly it’s been a while since I’ve been in love or even lust for that matter with anyone and I’m not sure what to make.  I’ve been a bit stuck in the making of new paintings lately, and one thing that’s nice about doing a show is that it gives you a concrete reason to push through a slump like that, or even if it doesn’t, it usually leaves you with new thoughts and feelings about your work afterwards that can often be channeled into new ideas.  Either way, it’ll be good to get my work up again.

Swirled Up In Sheets

without comments

I have finally finished the new painting.  This one is tiny, and it’s silly that it’s taken me so long to finish this, but it came out well in the end.  I’m calling it “Swirled Up In Sheets”

Work of Late

without comments

Well it was nearly finished when I posted a draft before to test the new web hosting.  But I finally settled on a final copy of that facial nerve illustration with my friend Ernest, so I thought I’d share that here.

facial nerve

I’ve been doing a lot of work with the skull again at work lately too.  That’s all been based on the Zygote model mostly, defining which parts of the skull go with which individual skull bones and the like.  That and chemistry, which is less relevant to this blog, but it’s been interesting to me just the same.

And at home, I’ve been working a lot on a painting lately.  It’s funny, she started off so green, but I’ve been morphing the color palette over time.

November Show

without comments

Well, we wound up deciding not to show with EAST after some rigamarole about showing work in a bar setting as opposed to a working studio.  But the show is on just the same, and we will be there throughout November starting on the 5th.  Do come see us!

Remembrance

without comments

painting called Remembrance

I recently finished another painting.  I’m calling it “Remembrance.”

This one took a long time and was perhaps the messiest picture I’ve gotten myself into yet.  I did some new technique work with a sponge that turned out pretty well in the end.

I’m proud of this one.  And I believe she already has a buyer off in Oregon, so I’ll only be keeping this one for a short while.  That’s how some of them go.  I’m going to make sure that I have a good image to work with for prints before sending her off though.

Woman In The Water

without comments

Apparently restaurant showings do pay off.  Good to know.  Having my art up at Bunbelly has brought new eyes to my work, and I’ve been contacted by someone who is interested in buying “Woman in the Water.”

I painted her back in 2007, in my little studio apartment back in Los Angeles.  She’s been with me for a long time now, and now she will move on without me.

Restaurant Showing

without comments

My house is so scantily clad right now!  I’ve put up most of the paintings I still have in a brand new Vietnamese restaurant called Bun Belly.  It’s my first restaurant showing, and I’m curious to see if anything comes of it.  My walls will be mostly bare for the next three months.  And then I’ll pack my paintings back in again in August.

Embrace

Embrace

I finally wrapped this one up.  This one was definitely a challenge, and I’m happy to see it finally get there.  Some images more than others seem to lend themselves to a potentially endless amount of adjusting and layer over layer over layer.  This was one of those.  I’ll be putting the protective gloss on soon, and then it’s ready for either sale or finding a nice place to hang here for a while.
