Sections from a Work in Progress


These are Hipstamatic photos of a painting that's been kicking around my studio for 2 years now. I recently pulled it out to work on it some more. These photos are more contrast-y and saturated than the original piece.

Oil on Canvas

This painting has been finished for almost 3 months and through one thing or another I haven't been able to find the time to get it up on my blog.
This is my first oil painting in 27 years. I expect more to come, though I'm not giving up acrylics. Using one medium really makes me appreciate the other.
The "framed" drawing is a funny pad of paper my daughter has where every page has a different frame printed on it. We were drawing together one morning with her markers and my other daughter decided to add to my sketch with some smashed up strawberry. I like what it adds to it.

Microscope 4





Microscope 4
2009/2011
24" by 36"
Acrylic on Panel

This is a painting that I started and finished in 2009 over a period of five months. I wasn't happy with that first version and so I wrapped it up and stored it in my office. It's been traveling with me as I moved from office to office for two years and in December of 2011 I rediscovered it behind some moving boxes. I still didn't like it. I decided to paint over and revamp it. The result is what you see here.
