Decided to give the undertones a little more punch. Worked a little more on the focal's to round her out but I think were getting to the point of saturation so I'll let her go for a bit.

Wednesday, January 21, 2015


Decided to accent the piece with yellow undertones.  Overall I'm pleased with it.  Not sure she is done but I can walk aways for now.

Sunday, January 18, 2015


Still not sure of the colours but definition is coming together.

Saturday, January 17, 2015

Wednesday, January 7, 2015


Well I'm going to be exhibiting at Phog lounge in February.  In preparation for that event, I have started working on another piece.  I like pearl Jam and even if it doesn't sell eventually she will be a piece I'll enjoy.  Its just getting her there that I need to worry about.  

Sunday, November 30, 2014


Well today was some backwards some forwards but I think we hit the limit of my capabilities at the moment.  So for no she is done.

Tuesday, November 4, 2014


I worked on defining more of the Seaweed, today its not fun work but it all towards getting it done.

Saturday, November 1, 2014

New underwater piece

Well today I started on a new piece.  One of my friends says I need to let go of some of my old pieces (refining them too much)  So I started a brand new composition.  Another day one friend complimented my on my underwater pieces so I though if thats what the public wants, I'll do what I can.

Subtlety and focals

Well picking up the pieces at debs dinner well lets just say I've got allot of work to do.  Getting better as a painter means long hours.  So here is my first attempt.  Were adding a little more subtly to the piece and hopefully more focus to the focals.

Summer art fest

Just rotated my paintings that were up at "debs dinner" I also entered 5 pieces into the Artcite's "Summer art fest" Not sure where they will find a home but time to do a little promotion.

I worked on Blue Haze a little more into shape.  She may not be perfect but neither am I.

art nouveau

I worked on the art nouveau piece.  I think I'm going to take a break from her for a while but decent progress has been made.

Wednesday, June 11, 2014


I spent a little time on fixing up the kio painting, not sure how much time I'll give but she is a decent position.  

Wednesday, June 4, 2014


Before my buyer came by a stole a couple more minutes on the lion.  Perfectionism sometimes is a sickness.  :P

Commission 2

Well I worked on the commission piece again the client need it done a little early.  So we'll push it, not a bad start so far.

Saturday, May 3, 2014


Well I worked hard on the lion piece.  I'm starting to work without lines to define the image its exciting but also its takes allot longer that way.

Kilt and Fiddle

Well now that I'm done college for the recent future, I figure I'm going to take some time out and paint.  I've asked the owners of the kilt and fiddle if I can paint on their stage this Wednesday - Friday.  Anyone who would like to come down for a pint or conversation I'm always down for that.  The Pub opens at 11am- I'll be there till about 6:30.

Hope to see you there.  :)

Kilt and Fiddle: 18th, 19th, and 20th

I will be painting again at the Kilt and Fiddle, on the 18th 19th, and 20th of next week.  Anyone that feels like a pint please feel free to join me.  Company is all ways a welcome thing.

Tuesday, July 9, 2013


Well I'm not sure how much more time I'm going to give this piece.  I need to start some work on a piece for the kilt and fiddle, almost time to paint downtown again :)

Friday, July 5, 2013


Well I've drawn another child photo.  This I think worked out better in terms of subject matter or the expression of the subject.

Saturday, May 25, 2013


Well tonight was the last night at Mick's (the new Kilt and Fiddle).  I feel like I got some decent work done.  I believe through this opportunity there were many small steps forward in regards to my portraiture and technique.  In that regard, this moment I feel good and proud of my accomplishments.  So, now its back to the work of getting ready for placement, here is hoping for the best.  


Friday, May 24, 2013


Well today was a small step forward for me.  I've finally gotten over my fear of covering the whole canvas.  We still have a ways to go but, at-least she is starting to take shape.

Monday, May 13, 2013


Well I'm finally done my ape piece. She's not perfect but I'm happy with her progress and some of the subtle undertones I've been working on really create a softer impression.  Now I can start some work on designing some work I intend to work on at the Kilt and Fiddle.  I'm thinking a nice rock band always a crowd pleaser.
