I’ve lost a lot of #acrylic skill since going to digital #art in 2018, but thanks to AI, digital art is dead, so I’m trying to regain that acrylic skill. I guess it’s a work in progress.

Video of Recent Art
I’m truly sorry I’ve not done anything in the last couple of days. I’m working through proposals at work (to pay for my art!) and skin cancer to boot, but last night at 3ish, I made this video of recent art (going back to October (ish). I’ll get creative again soon! I kind of wantContinue reading “Video of Recent Art”
I may be killing off the last of any artistic reputation I’ve built up with this, but it’s an oil, stencil telling of a secret, buried in the winter, coming to light in the spring. Inspired by Apple Crown Royal, now empty, and the song Electric Love, by Børns, on repeat. Nap time.
Cherry Lightning Filler
This started as a scrabble on the canvas, and asking myself “What can I do with it?” Et voilá! I’d kind of like to scrub the tree and start over but there’s other ideas that need to spill out into reality. Why? It’s reminiscent of my early work, and I know I can do better.Continue reading “Cherry Lightning Filler”
Once More Unto The Doodle
I’m driven in art by the notion that today may be my last day on this rock orbiting a small G2V star on the lesser known side of the Milky Way; which is why I try to do something every day. Good, bad, whatever, it’s a record i existed. So, here are some butterflies flittingContinue reading “Once More Unto The Doodle”
The Quiet Hours
I didn’t want today to go by without doing a doodle, so here you go. Technically mixed media in layers. Acrylic, water color, stencils, and a dash of magic. Better viewed on a bigger monitor, I can barely see the trees on my phone. But then, it’s a doodle, there’s more room for imperfections.
Back to the Beginning
I started doing art some 7 years ago after being inspired by clouds and birds on the way home from work. I know, I should have kept my eyes on the road, but, err, there were so many awesome vistas in the sky. Today I hooked up a Wacom knock-off I bought 4 years ago,Continue reading “Back to the Beginning”
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”
My favorite time of the year is here, Fall/Halloween. I’ve geared up the darker art to celebrate. This one I call “the Watcher”. I love gargoyles, so I painted one. The bushes are a combination of fantasy and berries I encounter on my daily walks. Techniques used include spray paint, acrylic paint, brushwork, finger-painting, andContinue reading “The Watcher”
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”
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 “
