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”
Parity Lost: Not quite how the angels thought the end of the war arrive.
Like most of my paintings, this one started off in another direction. I tend to go where my artistic Muse takes me, so planning is the first thing out the window. I started playing around on the canvas and eventually ended up with this. The scene in the painting is ostensibly a forest under theContinue reading “Aurora “
Eater of Worlds
This painting is about #depression. I could waste words trying to be eloquent about it but depression is a soul-killing illness that people joke about but don’t really understand or think is a real illness (as recently observed at work). The flowering trees represent the beauty of the world, the ladies on promenade humanity, andContinue reading “Eater of Worlds”
Flight of the Raven
My first finger-painting since the third grade. I’ve always wondered how effective it would be. The answer? For a guy with big fingers, I can’t get any detail. I’m going back to brushes for the next one, but it was fun to ‘roll around in the mud’, if you will, and stretch my wings. AsContinue reading “Flight of the Raven”
Portrait of a Chicken: Still Life of Captivity
I’ve become bored with it, so I’m moving on. This painting evokes the confinement all beings find themselves in, hence the reds. The chicken represents humanity shackeled by our desires, and the eyes seek to capture the emotions connected with the human condition. Acrylic on canvas painting 14″ x 18″.
Return of the Queen
Set a few years, if not a decade or two, after the filming of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, an odly familiar figure returns in disguise to the scene of filming. Although she hated pastries, it seemed fitting at the time to enjoy one. I haven’t signed it yet as I may or may not attempt toContinue reading “Return of the Queen”
Nestled in the hills overlooking the sleepy valley, the Sandmen of Castle Dream-guard keep watch on the distance. For in the far-off mists the armies of the nightmare realm gather for their nefarious purposes. The castle is modeled on my favorite, Lichtenstein Castle. Spray Paint and Acrylic on Canvas, 18 x 24. Unframed. Available for purchase here.
“Harvest Knights” Acrylic and Spray Paint on Canvas, 18 x 24. Deep in the night, under the blood moon a pair of knights rush along a deserted road, past ruins of long forgotten folk towards an urgent engagement. At least that’s the idea. The skills never match the concept.
