New Art: Unbroken

This piece is the third piece I’ve completed using a pallet knife and minimal paper quilling. I’m really enjoying the processe of painting with a pallet knife. It’s taken some adjustment in terms of skill and technique and I’m learning that I need to have a lot more patience with the process, but what is…

New Art: Quilled Wolf

Quilled Wolf, 18×24 Quilled Paper and Acrylics on Canvas I started this piece back in October of 2018. When I set out to create this wolf, I never thought it would take on such a long endeavor. From the moment my brush touched the canvas, it quickly became apparent that this piece was going to…

New Art: I Got My Eye On You

Prior to completing Wild Horses, at the beginning of the year I had a strong urge to start another piece. At the time, I currently had two pieces already in process, Wild Horses and a quilled wolf, and I hesitated to start yet another but the voice and vision in my head was too strong…

Birthday Easels

New easels cause me to wax philosophical about painting, art, and messy easels.

New Piece: Leon, The Black

Two weeks ago during Downtown Longmont’s 2nd Friday, I revealed a project I’d been teasing for a few weeks, #mysteryproject. For this project, instead of my usual work in progress pictures, I just took little teaser photos, hinting at what I was working on. It was the first time that I’d played around with teasers…
