Well, back to the grind - work. Spent 2 1/2 weeks in the studio working on some large paintings and getting a couple of commissions started. But now it’s juggling that and paying job for now.
I know I got a lot done. It just never feels like it though. Especially when ideas for new work keep popping up and get scrawled on little pieces of paper that fill the studio. Oh well.
A deisgn for the green man that went through a couple of transitions. Of course I started with the charcoal value sketch on the left followed by the oil on panel in the middle. The third on the right was a commission to be used as a reference for a tatoo. That one was done in pen and ink (something I like to do, but have little time to squeeze in with everything else that I am doing.) Overall, I think I am just flattered that someone likes my work enough to wear it.
And on the floor is a project I started last year. The image is “The Return of the Prodigal Son” by Guercino. Last summer got busy and couldn’t find the time to finish the skin tones or shadows. Hoping to finish it by the end of this year.
