Mylin Brimm - The Gift of Now ... 8x10 acylic on panel and paper...10 Jan 2011

About a year ago, my friend Mylin saw this little quick sketch in my journal of piano keys set upon an abstract background.  He told my right away that it looks like an album cover or something he would want as an album cover.  He wasn’t kidding.  Mylin remembered the sketch and asked if I could create album art with that original sketch in mind for some new songs he was working on.  We talked over some ideas and I listend to some demo’s of the songs.  It was a lot of fun to work on and a dream to work with-in the music community.  Music and art…two of my favorite things.

I will add a post, when the songs are available.

Street Scene and Magazines...9x12 panel board...24 Nov 2009

Happy Thankgiving!

This week’s painting is wildly different from my Flint Hills series.  The Flint Hills were so simple in form and minimal in color and this one is just bursting with noise.  I had an image in my mind of what I wanted this to look like and I just kept tinkering with it trying to find that right feeling.  Last night I finally got to a point that I felt it was finished enough to move on.  Any new ideas could be applied to a future painting.  There were many “what ifs…” on this one.
