Works in Progress

Here is a peek at some things I'm working on in my studio. I found some wooden eggs at Michaels back in May that were on clearance. I offered to paint simple portraits on them as a special for anyone who is subscribed to my newsletter. I am also working on a special project, for fun, working on a series of portraits of 48 of my lady friends and family who I admire. I will be posting one a month starting in January 2017. 

Creature Collaboration - A painting in progress

Whenever I am working on a project I always have left over bits of paint. Instead of letting those final droplets go to waste I added water and threw them on a canvas, layer by layer over several months. This was a great exercise for loosening up as most of my art is very controlled and detailed. It was fun to just let something emerge from the chaos.
