Some preliminary sketches of birds for the new painting I'm still working on and a couple of random post-it sketches.

A New Painting is Coming, But First a Sketch!

I'm currently working on a new painting for the Cannibal Flower show this weekend. This is just a little thumbnail of the idea for it. I'll have the finished painting up here soon.

Sketchy Thursday

Sketches from one of my numerous, current sketchbooks. I'm in a brainstorming mode right now. I have a couple of shows coming up this summer and I'm trying to make sure I give myself enough time to really develop some good ideas.

I've had this feeling for awhile that I'm ready to start pushing my boundaries, in terms of the size of my paintings, my compositions, and even my subject matter to a certain extent.

So I'm going to try to keep track of my progress here on the blog, for my own good and for anyone else interested.

Let's see how it goes...

New Painting for May

I know it's already June, but I finished this one in May for the Cannibal Flower show. So as it goes it is a painting for May.

The Key to Long Range Navigation

As promised the completed painting! The final size is 12" x 30", I've been moving towards painting bigger for my gallery shows. I'm still getting used to it, so, we'll see how it goes on future paintings.

A little bird told me...

It's been a little too long between posts, so here you go. This is a prep drawing for my newest painting. I finished the painting last week, just in time for the Cannibal Flower show! I'll get a photo of the final piece up soon.

I've been having a little trouble keeping the blog up to date lately, but I promise to be better. So stay tuned, kids! There's more to come...

A Winter Walk

I did this as a color study for an idea I had for a painting, although I never actually did the painting, I still kind of like it.
I thought of it when I saw that it was snowing in my hometown in the midwest.

Hello to the New Year

As with most things I'm running a little late with posting to my blog. I usually make some kind of overly ambitious resolution around this time of year that ends up being more than I can handle.
So, this year I just want to be a little more consistent with my posting(I know I'm already starting late this month!).
My goal this year is to be more productive, I would like to get more painting done and stretch my creative muscles a bit more. So, to that end I started the year off by attending a Dr. Sketchy life drawing marathon (the images above were created there).
Now, let's see if I can get going on some painting.
