I was happy to learn that this painting was sold through Haven Gallery in New York. It is part of a group exhibit featuring art inspired by the Uffizi Gallery.
Detail of my new painting that will be part of a Uffizi inspired show at Haven Gallery. The exhibit opens October 29th in New York.
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.
This is a 10″x10″ monkey skull painting in acrylic. I’ve always thought skulls are interesting. The similarities between human and monkey skulls adds an extra bit of creepiness.
This is the last bison skull painting in the series, the last one I am going to do for a while. I experimented with a bit of blue which gave the painting an interesting look. Along with the texture it has a bit of an underwater feeling to it.
The painting is an 18″ x 18″ acrylic painting.
I am finishing up the second “Western Shadows (bison skull)” painting. I will try to get a proper photograph of it when it is complete. There are some pretty interesting textures happening that aren’t apparent in this photograph. I’m planning on doing at least one more of these but who can tell?
