A Sad and Expensive Goodbye

The time has come where my 2011 MacBook Pro has bit the dust. I spent the past two days, unfortunately not painting, but fixing this technological problem.  

 This guy got me through undergraduate and graduate school, where I earned my BFA and MFA. Many paintings were created due to the assistance of this Mac, as you can tell by the lovely, encrusted paint scars across the keypad and screen.   Now, it’s time I let this one go and say hello to a new (and scary expensive) investment into my paintings and art business. Introducing the MacBook Pro 2018.

Paint will not be touching this bad boy. Luckily, I had everything backed up from my previous computer, so I won’t skip a beat as I keep working on my commissions!  

A new portrait

I have been working on another wedding portrait and was unable to post updates. It was a commission piece and it was a surprise gift to the beautiful bride. However, she has received her painting and now I can share the piece! Thank you for the commission Adam and Ginger!

Spent the day in the woodshop building stretchers for a triptych piece - stay tuned to see what’s going on. I’m pretty excited about this one!

From beginning to end - one of the current commissions.

I have been working on two tiger eyes commission pieces. I still have work on one, but today I have completed the other.

I swear painting is magic. I love watching how color establishes form, depth, and life to a painting through the layers. I think it’s the most exciting and beautiful part of being an artist.

Above shows four documented stages of the tiger eyes painting, beginning to end. 

 Shown above is the final painting by itself.
