Agave - 4 x 8 ft. panel

After much thought, I've decided that I am not quite done with this one. But here's what it looks like so far.

The drawing is in graphite and the painting is in oil. The polka dots are silkscreen and there's also some oil pastel and polyurethane on there.

Ostrich and Polka Dots!

Due to technical problems stemming from a combination of my ancient, second-hand mac tower and crappy wi-fi internet connection, I have been MIA the last four months. Even though these problems have not been resolved, I have found some way to get connected every now and then in the mean time. Yay!

Here is one of the more recent paintings I've done. I finished this one last month. I've also been working on an 8ft x 4ft panel (photos coming soon!), my biggest one to date. I finished that one last week, phew!

Ahh! I am obsessed with polka dots. Spent a whole drawing night at Donut Wheel meticulously sticking those little round stickers onto tracing paper. For this painting, I "polyurethaned" the polka-dotted tracing paper onto the panel. But I also burned the dots on a silkscreen so I can silkscreen polka dots onto anything!

Just finished this oil painting

This one is a birthday present for my cousin who turned 30 this month.  It's from an old picture of him and me when we were little.

Images From The Studio

Brought my panels and paint over to Empire Seven a couple days ago to work over there for the show.  It's so much better than working in my living room!  Great space, pleasant company... what more could you ask for?

Work in Progress

Here's a preview of what I've been working on for a show I'm having in May.  More details soon.

... in oil.

Obscured a lot of details from the comp that definitely gave it the much needed drama.
