This weekend I unexpectedly sold this 48″x36″ cow painting. I have mixed feelings about selling it but am excited it is moving to Jackson, Wyoming. A really good friend’s sister purchased it for her house so I hope to see it again someday!
Excuse the song title, it is a good one though!
Just for fun posting the most recent skull paintings together. Both 10″ x 10″ acrylic. Hopefully I will be back behind the brush soon!
Another skull painting, this one is 10″ x 10″ acrylic. This was based on a skull I have drug around with me for many decades. I released it to the forest when I was moving along with so many of my oddities and unused items that have accumulated over my life. I thought it fitting to do a final painting of it in the style I have been developing in recent months.
The acrylics are treated boldly with immediate mark making decisions. Trying to embrace the beauty of the paint letting the subject work as a framework for the color and gesture.
Where to go now? I am currently studying the nature out my back door and planning on treating it as an inspiration more than a direct subject. I am sure I will inevitably simply paint the landscapes that surround me but much like the use of paint I strive for something more. I think it is also important to work as much as possible without getting to “in my head” about what’s next. Forgive the ramblings, the middle of the night and terrible back pain leaves me thinking and far from doing.
Here is the complete collection of my recent paintings. They are each 10″ x 10″ acrylic paintings.
Here are the three fish paintings together. These are 10″x10″ acrylic paintings.
The third painting in my loose rainbow trout series. This is also a 10″x10″ acrylic painting.
I will post the three together soon!
The second 10″x10″ acrylic painting in a series. Not sure if I am done with this one yet…
I am on a slight side track of late. Working on a few images of rainbow trout. This is an acrylic painting 10″x10″.
Here is the completed painting I started the other day. A wedding gift for some good friends!
