Sailing was a big part of my childhood. My Aunt and Uncle lived on one; all our vacations involved water. Dad built a little 12 footer dinghy sailboat when my brother and I were kids that we’d sail around the lake. It was an awesome way to grow up, and I am still so thankful to my family for making it possible. Art comes from life, and my paintings are no different. Seascapes just don’t look right without a boat in the distance, and I’m grateful for that bias. May you have lots of boats in your future.
Hello lovlies, today’s painting is on two canvases in acrylic paint. This one has been in the works for the past couple of months, but it is just off the press today. I painted this one while listening to Rhiannon Giddens (she’s an amazing singer, btw. Go check her out).
Heres another picture of the painting with a ruler to give you an idea of scale:
I am also thinking hard about the format I want this blog to take and how I want to get it there. If you have any suggestions or stuff you’d like to see, please, message me! Stay tuned for exciting things with that! And stay safe out there in this uncertain world.
This one makes me smile. It captures a single moment, and feels almost mythical. This one is done in oils and with a color new to me: Alizarin crimson. You will definitely see more in this color from me.
So you may remember the first City at Night on here. I liked that one, but I haz skillz now so I thought I would like to come back to the concept. For reference, here is the first one, done in March of this year;
And here is the one I just did, in oils this time.
The second one is called Stars on Earth. I still like the first, but I’m pleased to be progressing.
