Now for something a little different

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.

Still Painting

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.

An explosion of art!

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?

Painting away

Well I've been spending the last few days painting, well, like a mad man. Yes painting a lot of new stuff. If your a Volare fan, that's the hearts with wings then you'll be happy to know there are more to choose from now. Also yesterday I completed a 24"x24" of an Irish country side. I combined the some elements from other paintings and came up with a quite quaint composition. Wow, try to say that a few times really fast.

With all the news as of late I feel extremely compelled to paint. My mission is to spread uplifting and positive energy though my art. It's Gods gift to me and responsibility to do this. As of late I'm working on an extremely exciting piece. This piece is a huge 40"x 60" Painting. Now don't get me wrong I have done larger pieces before and this size as well but this piece has the potential to be my best work as of yet. Now this is all subjectional but I feel GREAT about this piece. I love the way it's coming together. Here's a look.

Getting ready for art shows, teaching, and the cold icy wheather.

Well it seems like I've been in some sort of isolation for a while. I mean I have been around people, but not involved with my normal "crowd".
Winter's seem so long for me. Therefore in the fall I decided that I try my hand at teaching, to get myself around some people and get involved in the local art community. (What was I thinking?!?) Last Thursday was my first class. I've never taught anything in my life. That morning I was scared to death. I was considering faking my death and taking off for coastal Mexico or something. I didn't do that though, obviously. I finely picked my self up and thought of what I would do. I decided to gather as much materials as possible and talk about them. this should take quite some time. Next I would have then prepare a canvas. "This should take most of the time up." I was thinking. With questions and introductions there should be no problem, it's only 2 hr.'s right? Wrong! I did everything I could think of and then looked at the clock and there was 1 1/2 hr. 's left... Panic set in... then I heard one of the students say. "Why don't you do a demo for us." Hallelujah!!!! that's the answer! I don't have to fake narcolepsy now. "That's a good idea." I said. As I started the demo you could have heard a pin drop. Very unnerving situation, but better that 12 students looking at you wondering what your going to teach them. With questions added in it really wasn't that bad. I told them to bring in some items for a still life next week and well start the painting process next week. Phew!
Lately I've been preparing for some local gallery shows. I really should have painted more this winter but I've had a hard time with inspiration and then when it hits I'm in no position to paint. You know the old inspiration hits at the most inopportune times adage. I sometimes think my muse hates me or has a sick since of humor. Nevertheless I have painted and have actually come up with some very poignant paintings. So don't miss out and get to one of my shows coming up. Besides I need to replace my roof this spring and you can help me pay for that. Just kidding...
Well I woke this morning to cold weather and icy roads and it seemed like the perfect chance to catch you up on whats going down here at the casa de Ty.

first painting of 2009 conpleat

Well I just finished my first painting of 2009! I it's a beauty too. It's hard to discribe. It's a nude woman holding a guitar with a sky that transitions from night to day. Also a graffic hillside behind her. It's done in an almost cubistic style but not tecnicly cubism. It represents the feeling of vonralbility when presenting your art to the world. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. For a play by play on what's happening look me up on facebook.
