Here's a sketch for another painting I'll be doing soon. There is more going on in the final composition. This sketch was frustrating me and it probably comes threw. I need to do these sketches in rapid succession and not get hung up on just one. They're just studies for the final painting, but sometimes I get hardheaded and want to fight a drawing into submission. It's a fight a rarely win. Anyways I plan on getting some more done tonight and tomorrow.

Here's a sketch for the next painting. It's a commission. This is a little outside my comfort zone but I kinda excited about this painting. I going to get a chance to try my hand at that rippley, reflective water that people paint. There is alot going on in this painting but I think I can be pretty loose and free, have fun and paint fast. We'll see.

Hey guys. It's been about a month. Alot has been going on and I wont get into it. This is what I did with my last few days of Holiday vacation. I wanted to combine some of the techniques I've developed with my freelance time in front of the computer, with some more traditional painting and drawing. I want to turn this into a vertical layout with a giant lion head looking back in profile. This was just for fun and now I need to get back to the stuff that pays the bills. There will be more soon to come and I'm really curious to what art projects and or messes I will get into this year.
