I want to make more of these, the apples and the sheets were such fun to paint. This painting was on the blog before, but the photo of it was awful, so here it is again.

Literally just finished this one. It’s a tweaked version of a piece I did a couple years ago. It’s always frustrating to go back to something you’ve moved on from, but it was a worthy learning experience.

This is from January of 2011. I did it for Pascal’s Pals, they do a charity auction each year and asked me to be a part of it. This was part of my self-timer phase, lots of trial and error to eventually come up with a photo I could work from. It’s watercolor, coffee, and graphite on canvas.

Another palette knife concoction.  This was sheer fun; a great give and take with several different mediums. I used wine, coffee, charcoal, oil, graphite.

In this one, I went totally crazy with the palette knife and had the best time. Except when it came to her face, that took so many hours, tears, screams, out of me. I could not get it right, until one day it clicked. Mostly, I like her feet.

So, I have these really talented musician friends from Philadelphia. They asked me to do a cover for their next album, and this is what I came up with. The album is called Circe. They’re called Penrose. 
There is a teaser song here. http://www.penrosemusic.com/circe
Enjoy!
