As we sail into the fall, as in many years past I take on commissions to carry me over to the next art festival season. In doing so I have agreed to paint a portrait of the Redhawks stadium, our local minor league baseball team here in OKC. It was commissioned by a really good friend that is a situationist for the team. here is my progress...

While I'm up I might as well blog. I have been painting I swear. Actually I have went though quite a metamorphose. I have continued drawing the nudes, but I have started a 16"x20" project. It some what a painting a day type of thing except instead of tiny 6"x6" paintings, of which I still do, I wanted to challenge myself to a larger size. I am a full time artist why not paint like one. So far most of them are trees and dramatic land scape. However I have implimented this idea, It's called the "Wet Paint Special". If you decide to buy one of these 16"x20" paintings within 7 days of it's completion it is 1/2 price. I have also set these paintings at $400 each as regular price. Which in turn makes the "wet paint" price $200. I call it "Wet Paint" because it takes them about a week to be dry to the touch. I don't know I just love the idea of selling a painting before it drys. Maybe I'm just weird like that.

I haven't written in here for some time but lately I have been doing some work quite out of the ordinary for my work. I felt a need to return to form and the study of the human figure. I wanted them to flow quickly and I wanted to use my hands so the natural medium for me to use would be pastel. Not to mention the softness you can obtain buy using this medium. I need the practice. I'm enjoying the continuing expansion and development of my talents.

Well I'm onto a new painting. This piece is very exciting! It seems with each painting I feel it's my best work to date. I will be posting a picture of it soon. I would like to get a little further along in it though before I do that. So keep checking back. See you soon.

I feel as if my art is exploding with inspiration. I just finish another piece the day before yesterday. This piece is 36" x 48". I've been flowing with inspiration. I don't know weather it's the weather or if it's because the festival season is coming, or if I'm recapturing my love for painting. What ever it is, it's coming on strong. It's really strange how I feel when I paint lately. It has the feel of someone in love. When an idea is coming together it gives me goosebumps, and a chill runs down my spine. Then my heart melts. I think I'm in love with art!?! I don't get it either but who understands love anyway right?
