Yeah I know, before you even ask...I have no idea ;)
I was painting the figure and he just looked very serious and I thought I'd change up the mood, so when all else fails, I add fish.
This one is acrylic on masonite about 4"x6".
It's interesting switching between oils and acrylics since the painting process is different for each. I like the way you can work the oil paint even after it's been down for a while , but I also like the way the acrylics hold the brush strokes.

Another furry hat girl

Girls in hats are one of the few things to look forward to as we creep into the cooler weather. Okay, so I don't usually see girls dressed like this on line at Starbucks but a fella can dream.
I'll have to work on how to scan or photograph these canvas ones better.

Sketchpaints book for sale now!

I get the exhibit catalogs from Trees Place gallery all the time and along with the artwork always being really nice, I love the small formats that they use. The books are small, rectangular or square and printed in full color on slick paper. Just for fun, I thought it would be cool to see my stuff in that format so I put together a small collection of some of the sketchbook paintings that I've done.
I decided to sell some of the books here for $6.50 each, postage included within the USA. If you'd like one, you can contact me directly by clicking on the EMAIL ME! link in my link section. Just pass along your email address and I'll send you a request for payment via pay pal. Book measures 4.25" x 5.5", 16 glossy pages with cardstock cover.

Girl in oil

While I've always worked in acrylics, most of my favorite painters use oil paint so every once in a while I feel like I should as well. I dunno, there are things about oils that I like but I'm not convinced that it's for me. I know that I'd feel more like a "REAL ARTIST" if I could just figure out how to use them properly though.
The quest goes on....
