One eye

6x6 oil on panel
Playing with lack of color in this one.  Seems to keep with the feeling of the portrait..a little stark and dirty.  This is the same model used for "Hero".  What a difference a mask can make, she can transform from a hopeful hero ready to save mankind to a nasty one eyed pirate ready to steal your loot.

This masked girl is full of confidence and hope..she is ready to fight evil in all it's forms and save us all! This is another painting for the show on November 3, so please keep in mind if you purchase it, it will not ship until after.

8x8 oil on panel
This one speaks for itself.  Don't mess with these girls or you'll get it.  This painting took me a bit longer than normal to finish..I think it was because there are two of them.  I like it though..lots of attitude.

The pirate

5x7 oil on panel
I am working on a set of paintings for an upcoming show.  I love watching kids transform themselves into interesting characters when they dress attempt is to capture those transformations.  This is the first in the series.

Back to back

4x4 oil on panel
Cut these daisies out of their pot this morning.  Still they don't know the cold weather is coming.  This is my last 4x4 for a while..I ran out of panels.  Waiting on a shipment that will hopefully come this week.  Also, working on pieces for an upcoming group show.  Inspired a little by Halloween and how costumes can transform people into many interesting characters.  I will post the first one tomorrow.

Evening rose

4x4 oil on masonite
This is the companion piece to mid day rose.  I made the background as dark as I could..turned out pretty nice..simple.  On another note, I have been studying other painters lately and have decided I really need to step up my game.  Granted, since I have started painting on a more regular basis my work has improved, but I still have sooo far to go.  This is a good thing, I should be constantly learning and moving forward with my painting.  There are so many awesome painters out there..all so inspiring and great examples to strive for.

Mid day rose

4x4 oil on panel
sold I guess I wasn't done with my little flower studies.  My climbing rose has never done that before.  Had a couple 4x4's left, so here they are.  I will post the other tomorrow.
