Sometimes, it’s fun to just kinda hit the canvas with some swirls and stuff. You know – do stuff without any purpose…. Ok – fine, that’s how i usually approach it… but that’s neither here nor there – here’s a little piece that i’m calling “Vision” – it’s not really quite this orange – i’ll take another shot when it dries and post it then… probably. I’m also not 100% sure that it’s not going to just get re-gessoed either.
Vision - Acrylic on Canvas
Here’s the two promised sketches as well:
Ribbons and Canvas
Not sure if I’m going to paint each of the individual “parts” of that one, or just paint the whole thing… or both. We shall see. I have to get more canvas first.
Here’s something I started working on today – I’m not actually sure what it is yet – but I do know that it will probably take me months to complete.
Please let me know what you think!
Currently untitled - Acrylic on canvas
Here’s two new ones, fresh and… unusually abstract?
The first, “Distress” was originally supposed to be something else (and not actually abstract, at that) but the base painting i was doing ended up intriguing me so much i decided to leave it as it is, and worked on the form a bit more to give it the image it has.
'Distress' - Acrylic on Canvas
And this one, called Myoce for now, is the base layer for something completely else – that will hopefully end up exactly as i have in my mind.
Which usually means there will be a lot of wasted canvas =D

Kindling (Working Title)
Today I started on the canvas/texture for a piece that I’m tentatively calling “Kindling.” (No, the similarity to a certain tablet device’s name is not lost on me…)
Unfortunately, as the Matt Medium dries, and the pages regain their opacity, I’m starting to like it without any paint.
Oh, well, we shall see. What I have in my head is pretty spectacular – perhaps there will be two occasions to burn books?
For the record – War and Peace burns most rapidly, almost uncontrollably, and the 1950 edition of the American International Encyclopedia burns like firewood – quite nice if it weren’t for all the fumes from the ink of the time…
Ok – so – just a little touchup that needs to be done to the black areas, but other than that – this is how it looks:
Ribbon (finally) Acrylic on Canvas
Nearly done with this three piece… er… piece… called fox tango oscar.
Fox Tango Oscar - Acrylic on Canvas
Just some more work on that thing that i’m calling “Ribbon” at the moment. (Acrylic on canvas)
The Ribbon Painting
Just a little something I’m working on…. Acrylic on Canvas
I’ve added some more art to the Gallery. Check it out here.
Most of these (actually, all of them…) are from the recent show/exhibition I had at Studio121 in Canton, Ga., and most of these are older pieces. More coming soon…
5 are currently available on my Etsy Shop (Bombs And Robots, of course) as well.
