    Hey everyone! If you've been following my blog over the past couple of months, you will have seen the first few efforts of this new series I've been working on. I am going to post the rest of them that I finished just in time for the deadline to the show. They are all at the gallery now, and they are already getting major kudos. As a matter of fact, two pieces have been sold already, and the pieces haven't even officially been put on sale yet! I'm really psyched for the opening reception, and I hope you can check out the show if you are in the area!

    I made an hour-by-hour time-lapse gif from the Instagram photos I was taking while I painted this. Lots of fun!

    The paint surface of these is stronger than your other series. Quite a pleasure to look at just because of that, not even counting the beautiful rendition of light and form.

    Golden ether appears odd with the drapery appearing to be stuck in place and not blown by wind to half cleverly cover up her parts and make the painting more pg but the rest obviously don't have that problem.

    Do you size or otherwise treat the watercolor before using the water soluble oils? If there is any medium I've dismissed, its them; nice to see you do something great with a less than popular medium!
    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

    Human Nature: Christopher Queen Gallery Show

    The exploration of fabric continues! This time I am exhibiting my efforts at the Christopher Queen Gallery for the Human Nature show(May 6 to July 8). I feel like I am really getting a handle on these series, especially the Sacred Spring one. I personally feel like these are some of the best paintings of the series, and I am hoping the audience agrees.

    "Sabellia" 24x12" Oil on Linen board.
    This painting has the frame on it from the "Camellia Roses" painting.
    It looks much better on this painting.
