For the last few weeks I prepared pretty hard for a show in my house. It was fun ish... Trying to promote is so hard. This new work was done solely for the show. I'm happy about it mainly because I loved this paper. And I loved the subject. I tried to go soft and relatively realistic... I love white space around a subject too. Isolating a body part, or in this case a look.

I'm feeling like posting. Listening to The Waterboys and working out all the paintings in my head for my upcoming art show. In house. In three days. I have so much to do and there is so little time. My process has been messy yet creative lately. I have five new ideas at once and start them all... Then I repeat the process until there are unfinished artworks lying around everywhere in my room taunting me. One of these buggers has got to get finished somehow.

This is a first draft of a large acrylic. Large for me.. About 3 feet by 2. I took a photo of my friend after a hard night of partying and she just looked so blissful. More to come. I painted in the rough shapes and for the first time didn't do any sketch... No or very little pencil here.
