Fantasy v. Reality

One of the types of art I’ve enjoyed creating is the juxtaposition of adrenaline charged high fantasy, with the cold mundane-ness of reality. I’ve done a few creations to this end. Let’s explore: The first is, “A Warrior Walks into a Bar.” I created this from multiple angles, because there is a lot more goingContinue reading “Fantasy v. Reality”

Lost Mews-ing

Channeling the Black Dog today, which is why this subject is dark. The #painting is heavily influenced by two things: #Strangerthings the TV show (also #Strangerthings2) & H.P. #Lovecraft. I’m calling it ‘Lost #Mews-ings’ (after the #cat in the show)… at least until I pick a different title. It’s not my best work, because aContinue reading “Lost Mews-ing”

The Calm Before the Heresy

“The Calm Before the Heresy.” 18×24 #acrylic #painting on #canvas. $300 if interested, which is, mmm, $0.70 per square inch, plus $20 shipping CONUS. That’s a great deal. Prices are sure to shoot up the moment I’m discovered 🙂 I had the idea a couple weeks back, but it really wanted out of my headContinue reading “The Calm Before the Heresy”

Nature Rocks

I may add some highlights to the Roses, but I’m bored, and as Rey found out when turning over her scavenged goods on Jakku, what was worth four rations yesterday, is only worth 1/2 today. About the painting: The idea stems from an audial affair I had with an old friend, Concrete Blonde. Concrete Blonde,Continue reading “Nature Rocks”

Cattitude 

I initially hated this, but it’s starting to grow on me. I have to add Cats to creatures I can’t do photorealistic paintings of. I can, of course, take a cat and make a similar looking one but exact likeness – not yet.  There’s lots going on in the painting; direction of stroke, color theoryContinue reading “Cattitude “

Kamikazbees

Kamikazbees is the result of a thought I had while on the throne of seclusion. I was thinking of World War II, as I am usually found doing, then thought of bees coming in for a landing on a flower. I made the sunflower look like the Rising Sun flag (of the Japanese Empire). AsContinue reading “Kamikazbees”

Let’s Talk Commissions

I do commission work. If you’ve got something in mind, need something big, different from my norm, etc., I will take on the job. You’ll notice that my art generally is in the 16×20 or 18×24 range.  This is due to storage issues. I’ve done two bigger works, each at 30-something by forty-something (below), andContinue reading “Let’s Talk Commissions”

Wildflowers

I lost another long post (hint to WordPress, fix your app), so I will again give the short version. I’ve been doodling. Over the last few days I’ve been trying to replicate the way the eye will focus on one-element, while others are blurred. I’m using flowers for this experiment. For the out of focusContinue reading “Wildflowers”
