I went to New York last month to check out Vincent Desiderio’s exhibition at the Marlborough Chelsea gallery, Jenny Saville’s Continuum and the Gagosian, Lucian Freud at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and many others. Here are some paintings that I encountered on my trip. Inspiration!
Some updates from what’s going on in the studio. A lot of failure…some success. Here’s a selection of thumbnails, sketches, studies, paintings, and mixed media.
Some updates from sketches, ideas, works in progress, alla prima, and a drawing of my Grandma. Making some good progress.
Working out some sketches and thumbnails in preparation for some more serious work. These have been going on for at least a year now I think.
Been using tumblr since for about a year. Primarily it was just a place where I could catalogue my painting interests, but I have seemed to move beyond that and now I am using to share my progression of more valid work. My struggle to complete work is a major issue and I believe that one must work on a regular basis to achieve his/her goals. I even purchased a scheduler and if all goes according to my intentions this will become my best buddy. I’m trying to sort out the smallest things to the biggest things…from paying bills and work to managing girl friend time and ultimately creating space of mind to get to my own work.
If your on tumblr please follow my personal tumblr here or the tastiest way to cheat death (catalogue of painting interests). I intend to update these more than my blog as I am always on there…yes it’s kind of addicting mind you.
I’ve also taken down my website. Once some worthwhile work is made I’ll put it back up, but for now…
I’m sure you’ve heard of what has been happening in Japan so I decided to help out my friend Milai create some logos/flyer for her fundraiser on March 27th at Club Ember in Anaheim. All proceeds will go to Red Cross. Will post more info soon! Please support…Godspeed!
I need to take better pics and upload them.
