With the success of my previous Made in Hong Kong paintings, I’ve decided to work on an extension of the series. Here are the first 10 with another 7 or so in the queue.
16 x 16 oil on canvas. Today I finished this portrait of everyone’s (or at least my) favorite Philly bartender; Ken McConaghy! I posed him in my large office chair and lit him from a single light source with some blue and orange gels. Huge thanks to Ken for his willingness to pose!
Watercolor on Arches paper. I forgot to post this earlier…My oldest niece asked me to design a new tattoo for her. She loved it!
22 x 30 watercolor on paper. This was a piece commissioned by a friend for his wife’s birthday. Each flower represents the birth month of every family member.
Watercolor on paper. I painted this self-portrait of me with a brass brontosaurus in my mouth.
16×16 oil on canvas. My latest painting is a portrait of everyone’s favorite coach/gay uncle/friend Dave Cobb! I experimented using red and green gels over a single light source to add some additional color. Praise goes to Dave for being patient while I worked out my concept!
9×12 Watercolor paintings on Arches paper. These are some various still life paintings I’ve worked on in the past year and showed at the Wallingford Art Center.
12x 16 Graphite and Watercolor painting on Arches paper. Taking a short break and a bit of a palate cleanser before starting a new series, I had to paint this guy. He’s been judging me from my box of toys for 2 years now.
