Two Hundred Eighty-Six!

IMG_5601

I never thought I would like the end image but here we are again and I love the image I was supposed to cut up.  In these last two images I seem to mindlessly move across the page and by the end it’s become a crazy collage of imagery and pattern. It’s exciting and rather stress free. I will say I had half painted the birds ages ago, but that’s why I thought it would be a scrap image. I hated the birds originally which was why I gave up and it just sat in my scraps pile for about 2 months. Anyway, enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Eighty-Three!

IMG_5552

A quick sketch from Friday, prior to starting work I decided to draw to start my day off the way I wish everyday could start. I did end up finishing it at home but it was nice to be able to stop throughout the day and take a peak at the image and add little elements throughout the work day. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Eighty!

I feel like people are going to wonder what I am thinking about but current;y I’m not really sure. All I know is I am fixated on this idea of the body, being rooted and becoming part of the environment that surrounds you. It seems natural that I turn to different type of growths such as a fungi, since I have always been captivated by their shape and color. They are a strange organism, growing on decaying organic matter. Anyway, it just feels like another piece from a series of images floating around in my head. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Seventy-Seven!

series 365 - 277

 

 

This image is a bit busy, but it had to be done. It was one of those days when you see that an image could be quiet and calm but everything going on around you says you screams chaos. The image feels impulsive and incomplete but there are elements I love. As you travel through this piece you experience different moments and emotions. I encourage you to explore and please let me know thoughts. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Sixty-Eight!

Last night I started painting for the fun of it and because the weather seemed perfect and I had a clear head and nothing to distract me. I love nights like that. Anyway I really had nothing in mind so I started to “doodle” and this is where we ended up. I’m not surprised to see that I ended up with clusters and webs, I mean lets be honest that is my favorite thing to draw, paint, make….

Enjoy and see you next time.

One Hundred Eighty-One and Eighty-Two!

 

One Hundred Eighty-One…. First phase of a drawing.

One Hundred Eighty-Two… still in progress.

This drawing sits on my dining room table and I have just been slowly working on the image in the same style I was painting there for a while. Starting with a central image and building. The image always grows so naturally that it looks as if I knew what I wanted to do in the beginning, which is rarely the case! I’m going to start working on a painting soon which I was asked to do for a family member. I think it is going to be a great challenge because it needs to be quite large for the wall that it will be placed on. Also, I’m currently working on the other half of Liam’s tattoo but I refuse to show any images until its completed in on his arm. Opinions on tattoos are WAY too strong!

One Hundred and Seventy-Two!

The newest project, day one. This is the newest painting I have been working on, it is far from complete and to me right now it looks like a crayon box. All of the primary colors, not really blended together well, but this is the base of the painting and only part of it really. Anyway Enjoy and see you next time.

One Hundred Sixty-Eight, Nine and Seventy!

Alright so I have been working on one piece for a little bit recently and it is taking up multiple days. It was totally intimidating because it is the largest acrylic painting I have done since high school which was a while ago. Anyway I’m delighted I am trying this but I was super nervous about posting it before it was completed. It still is not done by any means BUT I have to show you what I have been doing. These are a few pictures of days 168, 169, and 170. The lower right corner was the first day, but unfortunately I did not photograph it at the end of the night so you have to use your imagination, a fearful endeavor I know! Enjoy!

So imagine day one bottom right up to the tips of the yellow cone-ish things that are nested within each other. Day two I added all the components on the left side, even the HORRIBLE lime green, which luckily did not last. Day three was the addition of the blue elements and some tweaking.

details, who doesn’t love a good detail!

After the third day, the green has been retouched, still not exactly where I want it but much better!
