    Also, my above painting "Wind" got a silver medal in the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles! I'm very pleased.



    Thanks Mr. Corlan, I'm methodical I guess. For progress shots, check out the video I posted about my Wind piece it's a time lapse video of the painting including sketches and preliminary work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=-9AcDJBF0Ik

    I usually scan my paintings, but lately my digital photography skills have been improving. Finally realizing that one of the polarized lighting gels I made six months ago was rotated 90 degrees in the wrong direction was a good step (thereby creating glare rather than removing it.) I'm now getting better raking light photos to show the relief of the brushwork.

    Haha, I recognized Ali from post number #124... I lived in NM for a little while and saw that guy in the coffee shop pretty often. Always thought he was an interesting looking person. I was just scanning your earlier pages and then read the post because I thought it was the same guy. Funny.

    EDIT: Now I just went through the rest of your sketchbook. $%&*ing awesome. Jon Foster is one of my biggest inspirations (I just saw that you studied with him) and now you are. Great work man... I am going to go draw now.

    Wow, this rocks my world inside out! The volume effect you can give with the oils using colors or lines is spetacular! I'm almost touching the screen XD

    Thanks for all the comments, everyone! Kadin, that's a crazy coincidence that you've seen Ali in NM. He is an interesting character. Thanks for watching!

    EDIT:
    I forgot I should post the following stuff too. Conceptart seemed to be down last week when I tried to post it.

    I can now post a small nude that I painted for the Portrait Society of America's Mystery Sale: Limited Size, Unlimited Talent. For this sale, artists are chosen and given a 6 x 9 inch panel to paint on and are asked not to sign their works. At the event which takes place at the organization's annual conference, buyers bid on the paintings without knowing who the artist of each painting is. It's great fun and it was an honor to participate along side some of the most well known artists working today (secretly.) Below was my contribution.

    I've been pretty busy lately and while I haven't been able to post here much I've accumulated several bits of news to share:

    My piece, Fairy and Her Steed was a finalist in this year's Art Renewal Center Salon. I'm excited to be including in their new Imaginative Realism category. Congratulations to all the winners and finalists!

    Looking Back has been accepted to the Oil Painters of America's First Annual Salon Show in Petoskey, MI. Taking place between June 21st and August 31st, 2013.

    Crater Lake received second place in a juried show at Hope Gallery in Bristol, RI.

    I'm honored and grateful to be included in all these events!

    Very good stuff!! Just looking at the brush strokes I can tell you paint regularly with care and have been doing it for a long time! Next to the texture and the feel of the volumes I love the colors you used on the last one.

    Thanks cato! Most of the portraits are from life. There might be a few that were commissions for which I usually work from photos. Sketches are also from life.

    In this new figure painting with the Milky Way I'm hoping to express my appreciation for the natural world. I'm also hoping to express my interest in thinking about how earlier cultures saw and understood the world. For one thing, I like to remember that before electricity and light pollution, the Milky Way was visible from everywhere, and visible every night that the moon wasn't too exceedingly bright. The best starry night sky you've ever seen was the regular nightly show. Now, I'm not disappointed that we have electricity, but what a different experience our ancestors had!

    I also like to think about what people would have thought of all those lights up in the sky. We tend to take for granted our knowledge that stars are burning balls of gas, and that we know what space is. But, before science told us these things, people could only guess at what all those lights were based on what they saw from hill tops such as this. The astronomer, Carl Sagan, proposed that a star looks not unlike a campfire from a great distance and people may have seen stars as distant campfires of the gods. This thought is one of my main inspirations for this piece. This is the reason I included distant campfires dotting the landscape below as well as the reason for the title "Falling Fire."

    In more good news, my two entries to the Jack Richeson 75 Figure/Portrait contest were accepted! Michael received meritorious status, while Mark Taber is a finalist and will be included in the exhibition at Richeson Gallery in Kimberly WI, from Sept 16th - Oct 25th 2013.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    Another new painting that I'll be bringing with me to IlluXcon next week. This will be my second year exhibiting in the main show there and a very exciting year for the event as it moves to the Allentown Art Museum. An unprecedented event displaying (and selling) current fantasy artwork in a fine art museum.

    I wanted to create a story with this image. I'm drawing on many stories and fairy tales from The Frog Prince to Ulysses' encounter with Circe in The Odyssey to clue the viewer into what might be going on here. A shadowy sorceress is seen here with a few of her accoutrements. It's not a large leap to guess that this frog of unusual size may have not always been a frog. But who's that in the mist beyond? Is it someone spying upon her activities or an unfortunate soul forced to come and keep their end of a bargain?
