It has been quite a while but here is a new painting. A new subject too. This is the first skull I have painted!

I started this series back in June, finished it in July and am finally posting it in September. That's just the way my schedule has been lately.
I took most of the summer off from painting but I'm back. I have a number of paintings in the works and a number of them completed as well. Feeling good being productive in the studio again. This is a commission from about a year ago that I forgot to post.
Finally a new daily painting! I have been doing a lot of gallery paintings and commissions lately. Both of which I am truly grateful for. However, there is nothing more freeing to an artist than painting what they want and how they want to. I love the expressive brushwork...and of course love the subject matter. I'll give you a hint about tomorrow's painting. It's the sister to this one :)
Another new piece for Susan Powell Fine Art. I like this piece a lot. It's reminiscent of a cheese/bread painting I did a couple of years ago. For purchase information, please contact the gallery at 203-318-0616 or visit their website at www.susanpowellfineart.com.
New painting. It's a commission and was given to Argus Brewery in Chicago. They are a craft brewer with a great variety in their line-up of beers. This is the 3rd year in a row that I was asked to do a painting for them. Don't tell anyone, but I think this one is my favorite one yet.
Another new piece for Susan Powell Fine Art. This was a tough painting to photograph. The bottle in the background was my great-grandfather's and the license plate came from my Dad. It is a composite material since it was during the time of conserving metal for the war. As for the wooden shoe mold, I bought it from the resale shop I patron and instantly fell in love with the shape. Carved out of one piece of wood.

Another new piece for Susan Powell Fine Art. This photo doesn't do this painting justice. It looks way better in person. It was a real challenge to paint and I am very happy with the outcome.

I can't believe it's been longer than 2 months since my last post. I assure you I have been painting. This is one painting that I spent some good time on. I wish I had a better pic of it because in real life it is full of subtleties that the camera just didn't get. Anyway. I have another show opening at Susan Powell Fine Art in CT and will be posting those paintings in the coming days. Stay tuned...
My last new piece for Susan Powell Fine Art. I really like everything going on in this little painting. I have painted this leaf a couple times in the past. It sits safely in my studio all year long.
Another new piece for Susan Powell Fine Art. Again, there were challenges and last minutes changes to this painting but in the end I feel it was all worth it. I really like the juicy detail in the oyster itself. For purchase information, please contact the gallery at 203-318-0616 or visit their website at www.susanpowellfineart.com.
This is one of my newest pieces for Susan Powell Fine Art. I am completely satisfied with how this painting turned out. The if you look closely at the original, there are a decent amount of broken brush strokes. it's tight but not ever detail is shown...only implied. I have a couple more painting in this show that I will post in the next couple of days.
I'm honored that this painting is in the Grand Prize round of the "You be the Judge" competition. I'd also be honored if I got your vote. CLICK HERE to get to the voting page, I'm entry #11. Thanks in advance and please share!
Voting ends Sunday, June 16. I am one of 23 finalists and the winner will receive a package valued at $10,000. It includes training tools, supplies, gift certificates and advertisement in publications.
I think I'm going to get back into some daily paintings. Not only are they great practice but they are what I want to paint...not what anyone else wants. I think that is important as an artist. I need to get my visions in my head, out onto board.
I've been working on some new detailed pieces but wanted to do something a little simpler in between the complex ones.
In other news, I am doing another oil painting demo in Berwyn tomorrow evening (Wednesday). Its at The Pavek Center at 6548 West 31st Street. Come out, say hi, and watch me paint from 6:30-9PM.
Another new piece for Susan Powell Fine Art. I began the initial block-in for this painting at the demonstration I did a few weeks ago. This piece has come a long way since that night. Lot's of refining.
