Progress on panel one of a new vertical diptych. Painting on the porch, listening to the Tigers game, thinking about how fine the summer is. This one is a self portrait. #watercolor #painting #portrait #contemporaryart #dualportrait #curator #artcollector @tigers

Beginning phases of a new project I'm really excited to be working on ๐Ÿ’ฅ maintaining forward motion.

Not named yet, but available thru the studio. I wanted this one to feel powerful and supremely confident, but have a soft-ish tone. This is a painting I wish I could wear as a mask for the rest of the week!

"Wait, Shrug". 24"x24" watercolor and oil...New color palette testing. Today I am jumping through permit hoops for building my studio, listening to "Everything I Have is Broken" by Aaron Lee Tasjan - which really relates, and doing some research on time travel for a new series. @aaronleetasjan

Tiny sketch of a conversation on a couch. #watercolor #painting

"Health Insurance" revisited. The yellow oil bar has become a sculptural element, rises about 1/2" off paper.

Which is constructing a studio out in North Carolina countryside ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ portraits of cows to follow. Just kidding (????). #studio #portrait #watercolor #contemporaryart #curator #artcollector

Today a man came in the studio and really laid into me for "ruining my paintings" and suggested that I just paint faces the way they're meant to be painted. So I did and this is the result, "Sermon Notes". .
