‘Face the unknown and you will start to know yourself’

New marker drawing, 2016 – 2017

This piece was inspired by the realization that trying new things has taught me more about myself. Moving to new places, exploring, traveling, making new friends, working new jobs…

Sept. 29, 2014:

Valeska Gavotte‘s new EP Songs for Sinfonietta is out today!

I had the great experience of working with him on the album art for this release, his second for Folkwit Records in the UK. You absolutely gotta check this guy out!

^^^^^

He’s a violinist/composer/multi-instrumentalist that sounds like a symphony crossed with folk and indie, and road trips, and time spent exploring cities…his music makes you picture movies in your head. It’s rich, son.

APRIL IS TODAYS MONTH

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Update from BrianLeahyArt HQWorking on a new painting. Here’s a couple sketches:

new piece sketch

new piece sketch 4

Color scheme not final. You can see the wall of windows well here.

new piece footprints

TO THE SUMMITTTTTT

The painting is going to be as big as the last one (“Pile Of Ship”) aka 4 x 6′ on wood. The basic idea is a mountain peak with footprints to the summit visible. In the background a sun looms larger than life. But the whole scene is viewed through a wall of randomly stacked windows.

I am experimenting with using tape to block off segments of the painting, leaving clean wood visible. Just finished a trial smaller example of the tape part, seen below.

No worries, it only took 4 hours! Ha! Ha. Ugh.

This one’ll be done in time for my summer residency at the unparalleled most excellent TWIG SALON on Pearl St. here in lovely BOULDER COLORADO. Stay tuned friends!
