My Urban Folk Guy is coming along fairly well.
I lowered his eyes and I'll add the pupils tonight. I add some highlights on the wallpaper background, and thinned his beard a bit. I don't want to add to much detail to this painting. Solid colors, firm patterns and bold contrast are what I'm after. A bit modern, with a American Folk Art feel.



It's just another style to try to learn and grow from.. hopefully another layer to add to that Holy Grail every artist delves deep to attain.

..Personal Style..

It's a long road yet though.
Stay Artsy,

I did mean to unload my whole history LOL

I actually thought I was posting on my ASHNMYST blogspot..  then I hit view blog and saw the wall paper and thought   crap.. wrong blog idot LOL  :)  oh well enjoy.

Mural on Computer Room Wall

My first, maybe my only Mural. I did this when we first moved in in 2002. Took out some paneling and found cement block that just said.. "Paint Me"  :)) ha ... so I did.

Al Stewart in "Wine Passages"

This is a piece I did for Al Stewart. No he didn't solicite the painting I just wanted to do that one and give it to him at a concert.   He didn't want it, but he autographed it anyway. But he loved it.

This was back in 2003 I believe, out at the Three Rivers Winery in Walla Walla. Thanks Al

It's an Alien Pumpkin sort of thing

Here is one some may have seen before.  The alien looking in the window with the pumpkin carved just like it.  Well last couple of nights I have laying glowing paint on it.
Here is a "simulation" of what the "glowing" paint looks like. Since I could not get a camera shot I made a fake. So this is sort of what you see when the lights go out.

Frills and Googly Eyes

My Lizard painting is done!!
I adore his googly eyes, large frills and awkwardness.
So ugly that he's cute!
I've achieved all I wanted of him and I'm satisfied with my work.
Today is a good day to be an artist.
I'm naming it Frills and Googly Eyes, unless a better one comes along.
Stay Artsy,

"Slice'a Lime For Ya?"


Summer's just around the corner and that gets me to thinking about spritz, vodka, lime.

"Costco Book Shoppers"


I went into Costco with my wife today and while she shopped I found a lawn chair and table for sale near the book stacks, sat down and did a little sketching.

This is what I really enjoy, drawing people in their natural "habitats."

I posted it on at the "509 Urban Sketchers and Painters" site at flickr. Have a look.

Mini Kitty Portrait

Another instalment in the Little Critter portriats(More of them Here and Here), this time of a cat.
A while ago I received two lovely 3x3 inch frames from an aunt of mine (thank you!) and ever since I've enjoyed whipping 0ut quick animal portraits. Some are realistic, while others border on realm of cartoon. All of them act as tiny samplers/exercises in style, technique and color theory. This time I played with an almost Mod approach with the jaw line, ears and eyes. Sort of a 1960's styled kitty. She (or he, I haven't decided yet..) has more work to be done, but only a bit of background and eye work keep it from being hung up.


A penny demonstrates just how small the critter is.


More to come on the Imaginary Portrait and this new piece.
Stay Artsy,
