Progress Shots - Oil Portrait of Erik.

It's almost finished...have to let things dry a bit so I can go in and put the finishing touches on it. I have to say, yesterday it crossed my mind to completely scrap this painting and start fresh. I'm glad I had some patience and saw the project through.

Progress Shot - Oil Portrait of Erik.

WIP. I started this painting last winter and recently decided to pick it back up. I may have shot myself in the foot attempting these tattoos...we'll see how it progresses.

Elephant - An Illustration.

Another quickie from the Moleskine. This is one of those situations where I wish I could take back adding in the paint/color.

After Van Gogh - For Nate.

An acrylic version of one of the first pieces of art that made me want to become a painter. It's terribly fun to paint in this style and now Nathen has something new to hang on his wall.

Birthday Gift - An Icelandic Tribute.

Because I couldn't give him the real thing, I turned out this little mix-media portrait of Bjork for my friend's birthday. Here's to hoping he gets his wish and ends up in Iceland sooner or later. Happy Birthday, Ryan!

Mario! - Pencil Drawing, etc...

It seems most of our (minimal) free time this week has been consumed by our original nes and the subsequent games. This was originally sketched out by the mister, then snagged by myself for fine tuning...if you can call it that. I'm still lacking a scanner, so this had to be worked via the camera on the ol' iphone. Enjoy!

Oil Portrait.

This is a painting from last year that I never got around to finishing. As it was finally leaving my home this weekend, in the arms of my favorite red-headed fellow, I decided to grab a few quick shots of it.

Working on this painting brought out the nit-picky, detail-oriented monster in me. Probably the main reason it was never completed (that and a thorough bashing from my professors)...The painting has it's problems, but I thought I would share despite them. Again, thanks for looking!

Pencil Sketches.

Here are a few random sketches. Some are unfinished and will probably stay that way. Some are hopefully destined to become paintings (if my new supplies ever come in!).

Gates To Keep In The Dead.

Heather and I were sent out to one of the local cemeteries to hunt for a stone. We took a small detour and took a look around the older mausoleum on the property, which made for some interesting photos.
