“Boxed Up”, acrylic on reclaimed wood, 19.5″ diameter.
Started another painting on wood, about 5′ tall and 3.5′ wide. As of now it is called “In The Beginning We Lived Outside”. Check out that grain pattern. Danggg son. $12/sheet plywood at Home Depot…It may not be suitable for building anything, but it looks cool when you paint on it.
The title was inspired by a lyric from musical mastermind Valeska Gavotte‘s forthcoming release, Songs for Sinfonietta, which I am very excited to be designing the album art for. It’s shaping up to be pretty spooky and dark so far. Borderline metal. Br00tal.
My largest painting yet has achieved finishment. Es final.
Created with Liquitex acrylics on wood, “Loomer” measures 4.3′ x 3.6′. This painting was developed when I was given the mural project in Lafayette (see previous post) and was completed at the same time. It ended up having its own personality.
WINNING. Below you can see some shots of the painting in progress
When I finish a piece I write details about its life on the back, like the time period and what albums I was listening to most at the time. The phrase “Look Up” sums up my perspective on life. Positive minds create their own positive world. B$#$%.
It was super cool painting at this size. I plan on going bigger next time.
Last month I finished work on my first mural in the great state of Colorado. Located on a garage door in Lafayette, “Loomer – The Mural” measures approximately 8′ tall by 10′ wide.
The mural was done in conjunction with the great people at Project YES, a nonprofit also based in Lafayette that provides leadership opportunities for young people through the arts and service-learning. Check them out – they are doing some really great things for the community. The more art in kids’ lives, the bettaaa.
I met many cool people during the course of this project and was excited to see how much is going on in Lafayette’s art scene. Can’t wait to get back there – I hope to be rocking a booth at Art Night Out several times this summer. More info on that to follow.
There’s a mural in the works, here in Brian town. I am teaming up with a cool organization in Lafayette that helps kidz get mo’ art in their lives – killer idea – and I will be painting a mural with them soon (more info on that to follow). To figure out what I want to do there I started my largest painting yet last week (it’s on wood – also a 1st for me). He’s taken on a life of his own now. Have to have it finished in 3 days, so you won’t even have to wait long to see it done!
Here you can see the sketch I did for the painting:
