"Pisces" represents humankind since roughly the time of Christ. His time has passed. His walls are closing in, he is fraying at the seams and he just can't understand why or how this has happened.

FLOWERS ON GREEN

An ode to the still life paintings by Van Gogh. I chose the main colors for this piece before deciding on anything else. I seem to be leaning towards a lot of green lately. I experimented with some new techniques in an attempt to get more paint down faster, with less worrying about detail in the early stages. I enjoyed painting this, it was a pretty stress free experience.

EMMA

Ink and Watercolor

Commission painting of my cousin's late pup Emma. I was given a few photos to work with, and had free reign over colors and background design. Experimenting with masking tape and paper towels led to the end result.
