Black Blue Red: July 2016

Overwhelmed: for days, it was the only word I could utter to describe the events of the week. Three cities, seven murders, more injured. If you did not drop to your knees in pain, I don’t see how you could have been paying attention.

Ready to Roar

You’re looking at my first commission, I suppose. Continue reading “Ready to Roar”

Death by 1,000 Cuts

Some of you know I’ve been back in the recording studio cutting a new album, “love & blood.” The painting here, “Death by 1,000 Cuts” is the primary painting for the artwork, although the original image will be manipulated (example below). Continue reading “Death by 1,000 Cuts”

Circles

Thought I’d share three smaller acrylic works, each 6″ x 12″. All painted with palette knives, then stamped with circles, then highly glossed.

Summer colors, popping. That was the goal. Continue reading “Fizz!”

Original Sin

 

This is my first favorite painting, the first one that made me go, “yeah, I want that on the wall.” And it hangs over my bed against a red, red wall. Continue reading “Original Sin”

Surface Tension

I just finished this painting, Surface Tension. It’s watercolor and acrylic, 36″ x 24″.

You know how you can fill a glass to the brim and even add just a little bit more so the water seems to rise above that rim? And then just one drop too much brings on the spill? Continue reading “Surface Tension”
