Learning from your own work

with 2 comments

At some point in attempting to develop a “style” or personal voice in my work, I find that I am really teaching and learning from myself. That the biggest source improvement for what I doing comes from my examination of what I’ve done. This painting, which is in progress, is one that I’m still searching for answers. Because there is not a model I’ve gone to taking photos of the its early stages, and using them as a reference as I go forward.

Church Work and Angels

with 9 comments

A few weeks ago I visited a church and noticed that there was almost no art work visable. It wasn’t always that way. I got this idea to paint angels. Not your typical “DaVinci” type angel. Angel 2

Looking for a smile

leave a comment »

I am recounting events that seem to make me want to smile, like Natalie Portman’s SNL video or Chris Bliss. Last night, we went to this restaurant in the Neighborhood. I think its called the Painted Pony, something like that and had babyback rips, which I should not have, but you only live 1, 2, 3, or maybe 4 times at best. Now I’ve always heard the term babyback, but it seems I didn’t understand what it meant. I had this visual in my mind that they were small. they were not. This was the larger plate of ribs, other then at family reunions, that ever saw. They were great, but almost medieval.
