Now it is Da Bombe

Mediocre background....
Ahhhh. Much better. I found some awesome lace at the DAV. I used it as a stencil with some spray paint.

Avocado Bravo

I just wanted to share a gem from one of my books. Anyone want some avocado ice cream? anyone?

Wrapping up the summer

HB and I finally got the stretchers built and the canvas stretched on this enormous 6' x 9' painting. It is too big for my studio so the living room has become my temporary studio. I had some touch up work to do from the shipping. Also I had to finish some of the background. I am very close to being done with this. I am still leaning towards "Jello Shot" for this one. Let me know if you have any better ideas.
My first attempt at Fair Isle. This is a detail from a vest that I am working on.
Treasures from the DAV in Memphis.... It is my favorite thrift store. We used to have sculpture field trips there in college. I always find good (scary) stuff on Summer Ave.

Yes, the inside is just as creepy as the cover.

Stay tuned on the blog. I am heading to NYC for the Draw! New York class next week.

Two more....

Here are some small paintings I started in NH. It is amazing how fast a 16"x 16" painting goes.

Should I title this Honey Do or Honey Don't?

I have no clue what to title this one. Any ideas?

Where the sun is fierce...

I am back in Mississippi. My last week at MacDowell was pretty amazing. I had an open studio which was attended by all the "cool people." An old old friend visited and the weather was amazing (finally). I am almost finished with the giant painting (title TBA). I have some work to do on the background. Now, I am enjoying all the amenities of modern life!
scenes from the open studio (brian, stephanie, liam, and random girl)
Drawings and inspiration on the rolling bulletin board.
Small painting (16" x 16")- it is unfinished, however the preliminary title is "Honey Do"

I am glad to be home!
