Grace...30x40 acrylic on paper and canvas...23 Nov 2011

I finished this one right before Thanksgiving and finally got around to taking a picture of it.  I am never happy when I have to photograph my work.  There are lighting and glare issues, color issues, and I feel like it looses a lot of close up details.  I only use a Canon point and shoot camera, so I am not really working with the gear for pro-shooting.  You got to see this one in person.  Believe me, so much better.  With my smaller paintings I usually scan and get good quality images.

This is the first painting where I followed through on the idea of using the leftover cut paper to make smaller paintings…which I call “singles” (like one song off an album.)  I would take breaks from working on the “big” painting to finish some smaller paintings (see my previous posts.)  I like where this is going.  I need to get through Christmas as I dream-up the next project.

Grace (swan dance edit)...8x10 acrylic on paper and panel...11 Nov 2011

This is the lead single off my new upcoming album.

My  latest painting is almost complete.  As I have been working on it, I have seen the potential to do a few singles, b-sides, and remixes at the same time.  This edit has been made by using leftover material samples from the original painting to create a smaller piece.  I thought I would take a break from the main painting to complete this smaller piece as an introduction to the themes of the larger painting.

I have had this idea floating around in my  head for a while, so here is my first shot at it.  We’ll see how it goes.
