I wish this was a better photo because these guys are electric! They are done in oil on 4’x1′ panels…not as a pair but I was too lazy to separate…(and not computer suave enough to accomplish)
This guy is one of the new paintings I am doing on animals…I jump around a bit…I want you to feel the energy that I was feeling when I painted him.
What I love about this painting is not that I was painting the beach but I was expressing the freedom and joy I have when I pick up a paintbrush…this painting is done also with oil..many layers…and is 4’x5′..
This paintings I did after the large one and is on a canvas 5’x4′ and in oil…I like to keep some of my pieces so I can keep track of what I thought was important…obviously I thought softly about this subject…
This is more like the brushwork i am using now to create my paintings…I want you to know it is not a photograph..the closer you get the more the brushstrokes come alive! I am first and last a colorist…sometimes I get carried away…
I did this painting 2’x4′ a couple years ago. He is much more subtle but sorta depicts what I was trying to say..My style is evolving into more spontaneous/electric brush strokes but still I am quite please with this.
My Pig seems to share my sentiments exactly…I have painted a series of these free-form paintings…this one is 2’x4’…I begin with a subject but then create and paint freely. I am comfortable with animals because I love them and as long as I create the personality then I am home free with the rest of the painting.
