I plan on updating this post with more oil paints and other things in the next few weeks (that means months in my world), but here's one for starters.
An idea I sketched some time ago that I always meant to do in oil. I have found I have a hard time translating the spontaneity and raw energy of sketches to "finished" painting. As of now I have dealt with that by treating the drawing/sketch and painting as two different images. I'll post both to compare.
oil on linen : 18" x 24"
I apologize for the terrible photo. Just couldn't get a decent pic, so when I borrow my friend's camera I'll post a quality picture.
For now : "ridiculum" - 18"x36" oil on masonite
Posted a thrown together process of this painting in the sketchbook section :
CGSociety Challenge - digital
6.5.06 : just some digital practice with an old sketch . I guess not the most original character but it was fun
6.30.06 - OK -here's two more for the gallery show opening July 7th at
the Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle. If anyone is in the area that night, please stop in and say hello! Would love to meet any fellow CA.orgers. Also it would be worth your while to check out the other 2 artists I am showing with : Audrey Kawasaki and Myna Sonou. I got to see some of the new stuff they did for this show and it is amazing and very beautiful. I'm going to look like a chump next to them!

There are some more in the show, but I can't remember what I've posted here and what I haven't. I hope to see some of you there July 7th!
