Freak Out

Since the DJ Shadow competition has been pushed back, I thought I'd post some more paintings I've worked on during the holiday break. 

I've been practicing new techniques and specifically trying to paint faster.  This painting turned out super messy because of how fast I tried to paint it, I've recently tried to step away from using just soft brushes for the entire painting, and in this one I used a hard edged brush.  I like the impressionistic feel this one gives off, but I think next time I'm going to try to use a blend of different brush types. 

I'm also trying to use more saturated colors, and instead of mixing colors on the canvas, try to be more deliberate with the color choices I put down.  It's been fun!  It's always fun to try new things.  I hope you enjoy the results!

welcoming 2012!

Hi all!  This blog hasn't been able to get much love lately, I just wanted to tell everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

I'm going to post more often, I've been keeping quite busy lately.  I have a few paintings I've finished, but have been waiting for the right time to post them.  But I just wanted to send out some love to everyone who checks in on this blog, and the surfers of the internet.

May 2012 be a great year for everyone!
