An unexpected human pause for Earth Day’s 50th anniversary is giving us a view we don’t often see.
This is the most ambitious pet portrait I’ve done to date: five distinct cats, from completely separate reference photos, combined to appear to be sitting together.
I used to make these paper fortune tellers all the time in junior high.
While figuring out what to paint for this year for the Works/SJ benefit, I realized I’ve done a few paintings that have aligned into a new series of their own.
This is the largest painting I’ve done yet! It’s a shipping container owned by Veggielution (8′ x 8′ x 20′).
The late afternoon sun and shifting weather created this extraordinary light show with the glassware that splayed, rippled, and caught an occasional tiny rainbow.
I contributed a low mural here in the theme of reclaiming and reusing space, latching onto the idea of the physical markers that signal that.
This was my take on the classic “white cube” primitive for art.
More pet portraits – here’s a bunch of dogs I’ve painted so far this year.
The ArtBox Project is an effort to bring more art into neighborhoods by sprucing up overlooked-but-ubiquitous utility boxes.
I put out a call for pet portraits early in the year and have done quite a few since then. Most of them I held off on posting because they were gifts and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. This batch is cats!
Organized by The Exhibition District, this is a mural created by 100 different artists each painting a 3′ x 3′ square.
I enjoy painting portraits of pets, and my latest commission was especially fun: pet chickens!
Continuing my tradition of creating new works to donate to the annual Works/San José benefit auction, here’s one that echoes some of the artful cropping of the Statement paintings but with a new subject matter.
For 50 days I painted a series of gesture paintings. I enlisted 24 models (plus me) for variety and also to involve friends, family, and co-workers along the way.
Here’s a triptych of paintings I created based on the theme of the 2018 Works/San José member show: Infinite Memes.
This show is the culmination of two years of collecting amateur landscapes in need of a little love.
I started this one in college as an figure painting exploration with a particular focus on hands and feet.
Inspired by the flame effect of these frames, I created a couple of illustrations in ink and colored pencil based on a painting I did in college.
Last one in the Harvest series skews tropical with papayas. This ended up being both the biggest fruits (only four on here) with the smallest details (little black seeds).
