Very happy to announce that I'll be coming back to Duluth to teach a weeklong workshop on Cast Drawing and the Mechanics of Light at the Great Lakes Academy of Fine Art. Last years workshop was a ton of fun and I look forward to working with everyone again this August!

I haven't posted anything in a little while so I thought I'd share this detail shot of a work in progress that I have on the easel right now. I have to admit that the prospect of painting this iridescent nautilus shell was a bit intimidating at first, but once I got in there and started it was actually really fun! I have a feeling it might work its way in to other paintings in the future 😉

Ok, I didn't wanna feel left out, so here's my tip nine from 2017. Looks like 2017 was my year for flowers and crystal balls...thanks for all the likes and for following me this past year! Looking forward to posting some new work very soon! Happy new year everybody!

Quickie little still life from the other afternoon. My attempt to squeeze one last little painting out of this bouquet of flowers.

A couple quick alla prima still life painting from a little while back. These were a couple of the last paintings I made in my old studio before moving in to my new one (one room over from the old one😉). Looking forward to diving back in to painting from natural light now that I have a big skylight again!

These might be some of the last sunflowers of the season. Time to move in to some fall and winter subjects I guess...

Quick little oil sketch from a few weeks back. Thanks to @adinayoonart who was nice enough to bring me back this cup from Delft! .
