NEW PAINTING

Friday, June 28th, 2013

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.

New Painting

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.

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.

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$#$%.

Loomer Back

It was super cool painting at this size. I plan on going bigger next time.

NEW PAINTING

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

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!
