Two New Paintings

Snow SceneThis is actually an old painting that my daughter found. The snow scene I did after college before I went to art and design school in Denver.  I painted the entire thing with a palette knife and I love the reflection of the snow and the sky.  It's a beautiful winter scene and one scene I can look at without feeling cold but enjoying the beauty of winter.

Complex He IsThis one I did for my son-in-law, Grant.  This is a picture of Grant and he described to me what he wanted and I used that as my starting point with no specific reference picture.  I find the energy in this painting really exciting and it's very interesting to look at because your eye never gets tired of traveling around the painting.

Freedom

I recently finished the painting of downtown Omaha for my son, putting the varnish on and signing it.  You can find it on the right under Latest Images or in my Landscape gallery.

I am now working on a drawing of three running horses for my friend Betty.  Underneath it will be the word "FREEDOM".  It's about 3/4 of the way done and I'm hoping to have it finished in the next few days.

I'm also starting to work on some manga sketches based on some of my daughters Japanese comics.  I'm a little hesitant since I'm not really sure what I'm doing, but I'm having a lot of fun exploring a new style.

I think I'm going to be moving my art studio to the basement of my house. We might take out the walls and make them into floor-to-ceiling windows, giving me a lot more space to work with and a lot of natural light. I'm really looking forward to it!

Omaha Cityscape

Omaha CityscapeI am currently working on a cityscape of Omaha, Nebraska, for my son Nicolas.  It's a large acrylic painting so it's a big project and he wants it to be mixed realism with abstract elements thrown in.  It's taking me a little longer than I initially expected but I am about three quarters of the way done with it.  Since this picture was taken, I have changed the colors of the buildings - they're more hot pink and turquoise.  I'm also working on including more abstract elements in the foreground with some colors that aren't exactly the colors of nature, so it's becoming as much abstract as realism.

I'm also finishing up an acrylic portrait for my Betty Series and have just completed a pencil drawing of my friend Rain, who was one of my best friends in Denver who passed away a few years ago.  Look for it on my website soon!

The Betty Series

As of right now I'm working on a group of drawings/paintings that are of my friend, Betty. I just finished a pencil drawing of Betty. Now I'm working on an acrylic painting of her. I have completed most of the background on the painting and I'm about a quarter of the way done with Betty's face. After completing this painting of Betty, I plan to work on a painting for my son and another painting for my son-in-law.
