Battery – My latest Painting

I’m pretty pumped to share my latest painting.  It’s been about three or more years since I’ve painted anything over 8″x10″.

Here it is – “Battery” 40″x40″ Spray paint & oil on canvas (eyes are oil paint).

Here’s some process shots

That’s it for now…

Busy End To Summer

I’ve been super busy the last couple of months working on new projects, and finishing some old.  I realized I had missed sharing some sketches I had done before I got going on my new commercial portfolio.

Here they are…Lydia_DeetzDumb Donald, JerryEvil-Lyn, Slimer, and Peter Griffin

Also at the end of August I tried my first couple of attempts at plein air .  The first is of a neighboring farmers field, and the second, a marina off Lake Huron.

The next time I take a go at these, I want to try using gesso first.  The boards were really drinking up the paint, and at times I found it difficult to move my brush across the surface smoothly.

Finally, the last two weeks I’ve been working on a new piece that I had been planning to do for quite a while now.  It’s a wolf painting 40″x40″ in spray paint and oil.  I’ll share it next post… until then here’s a preview (wasp not included).
