Sometimes my job is stressful and sometimes I get to frame amazing art work! This guy brought in an original Salvador Dali block print and I died! #art #representationalism #aliceinwonderland #salvadordali #blockprint

Ameri.... A sign of the times. Saw this on the street while walking home -- crushed and flattened. Been thinking and looking at nationalistic signifiers in our day to day. During the past election Budweiser changed its name on its cans to "America" in a marketing campaign targeted at "patriotic" patrons. Where's the line between love of country and nationalistic, neo-colonialism and fascism? Often that line gets crossed once you've tossed back a dozen or more of these... #crushedcans #ameri #nationalistic #watercolor #gouache #representationalism #realism

I'm forgoing my WaaayBack Wednesday post today to share a glimpse of my latest work "Bright Eyes" all framed up and ready to head out. This new work will be debuting at the upcoming Synesthesia exhibit with Rehs Contemporary (opening April 9th). If you will be in the NYC area this month I hope you can stop in and check it out!!!! ‪#‎synesthesia#‎anithemusical #painting #oilpainting #realism #representationalism #trompeloeil

After a successful opening this past weekend I am back in the studio for some "George" time. Feels good to be back into one of these currency works. #painting #oilpainting #representationalism #realism #AAAW #currencypaintings #trompeloeil

Hope everyone is having a fun July 4th weekend. As such, I thought I would share this awesome work done by my wife @leahfw45 a few years back. This is "Relic", 10x8", Oil. Hope you dig it! 🇺🇸 #greatart #representationalism #realism #interior #aaaw

What some may not realize is that much of my own artistic development has come from countless alla prima life studies. If you want to maximize development--maintain your focus but diversify your experience. 👍🏻 #oilpainting #realism #representationalism #allaprima

"Old School," Oil on Panel, 18" x 16," 2016 is meant to depict items one would find in classrooms of years gone by.
I was able to sneak a nod to the painter who really got me interested in this style @yychuls into it. #representationalism #stilllife #trompeloeil #contemporaryrealismpaintings #contemporaryrealism #academicpainting #oilpainting #realism #warrenwkesslerart #yeseverythingispainted #worldvisualcollective #artists_on_art

Happy Sunday~~~Quite a few have asked me to share more currency work after my the last money painting I posted so I thought I would share this one from a little ways back: “Travelogue”, 7x5”, Oil on Panel. Hope you dig this one as well! #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #aaaw #contemporaryrealismpaintings #contemporaryrealist #academicart #academicpainting #21stcenturyart #art #painting #tepresentationalart #representationalism #stilllife #trompeloeil #currency

Just finished laying in one of the smallest portraits I have done in some time. Stay tuned for some WIP shots as this piece develops.

I was very fortunate today to have had a glimpse of the Legacy exhibit being installed by the fine folks from @gallery1261 in the beautiful Vida Ellison Gallery which is housed in the impressive Denver Central Library. The library was designed by celebrated architect Michael Graves (co-founder of the Postmodern school of architecture) and is a work of art unto itself. I am very grateful to have this showcase hosted in such a beautiful space. For those attending the opening--I look forward to seeing you this Tuesday! #legacyexhibition #contemporaryart #representationalart #representationalism #arteducation #arted #vidaellison #denver #artexhibition

Still traversing the "wild west" with my latest work. Titled "Frontier", this new little shadowbox piece will be one of my contributions for an exciting exhibition coming up next year with @rehscontemporary (Rehs Contemporary Galleries)-Stay tuned for more details! #art #fineart #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #aaaw #contemporaryrealismpaintings #contemporaryrealist #academicart #academicpainting #21stcenturyart #representationalart #representationalism #stilllife #trompeloeil #painting #oilpainting #realism #wip #aaaw

In anticipation of next week's launching of Illuxcon (IX 10), an incredible celebration of contemporary Imaginative Realism, I am sharing this fun little Waaayback Wednesday piece titled "Where Adventure Begins..." (5x7", Oil on Panel). This year I am again offering my Painting for Biology lecture at IX. It will be offered on Friday, Oct. 20th from 3-5pm in the Boscov Film Theater. If you are attending this year, I hope to see you there! #waaaybackwednesday #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #aaaw #contemporaryrealismpaintings #contemporaryrealist #academicart #academicpainting #21stcenturyart #art #painting #tepresentationalart #representationalism #stilllife #trompeloeil #imaginativerealism #illuxcon

Feels great to be immersed in a new piece.

For this weeks' Waaayback Wednesday post I am sharing a work that isn't from too far back---but it contains a figure that I really enjoyed painting. Hope you dig this detail of "Love Story", 10x8", Oil. #waaaybackwednesday #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #aaaw #contemporaryrealismpaintings #contemporaryrealist #academicart #academicpainting #21stcenturyart #art #painting #tepresentationalart #representationalism #stilllife #trompeloeil

I'll be launching into a new piece in a few days and while this one is definitely smaller than some of my more recent efforts, I promise that I will indeed pack quite a bit of information into that limited space. :-) #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #aaaw #contemporaryrealismpaintings #contemporaryrealist #academicart #academicpainting #21stcenturyart #art #painting #tepresentationalart #representationalism #stilllife #trompeloeil

I am extremely proud to share (with permission of the client of course) an incredibly special commission work that I recently completed. Titled, "Well Played", this piece was conceived as an extremely touching homage and I could not be more honored to have been chosen to realize it. I hope you enjoy this glimpse at what has been keeping me busy these past few months. #contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #aaaw #contemporaryrealismpaintings #contemporaryrealist #academicart #academicpainting #21stcenturyart #art #painting #tepresentationalart #representationalism #stilllife #trompeloeil

Here's a little Waaayback Wednesday WIP work that really doesn't reach all that far back (but I wanted to share it so there...) "212", Oil on Panel, 7x5". Hope this finds you halfway through an awesome week my friends. :-D #waaaybackwednesday contemporaryart #contemporaryrealism #aaaw #contemporaryrealismpaintings #contemporaryrealist #academicart #academicpainting #21stcenturyart #art #painting #tepresentationalart #representationalism #stilllife #trompeloeil #wip

The @ryeartscenter 'Painters on Location' event asks that each artist choose one painting from the paint out to be included in the live auction that immediately follows the close of the 'Painters on Location' which is Saturday, Sept 26th, 2017. What can I say, I am feeling rather ambitious about the event, so I've prepared 4 panels with frames!!

The Legacy exhibition is drawing closer. I'm very much looking forward to the debut of my recent work, "The Storyteller", (18x25", Oil on Panel) SHOWN: Detail. If you are in the Denver area this November please join us for this very special exhibit hosted by Gallery 1261 and the Vida Ellison.

Something that many seemed to find fascinating during our recent "Diagnostic Painter" workshop was how I would occasionally "draw" complex light patterns into wet paint (when applicable) with small pieces of paper or sand paper (e.g., drawing in the complex patterns found on the playing cards in my recent work.) I encourage you all to experiment as much as possible (preferably on practice pieces) with how best to manipulate paint to meet your needs. Sometimes you need to go beyond the brush--- ;-)

Detail of "The Voyage" (20x16, Oil) for this Waaayback Wednesday~~~ :-D (I love this section.) #waaaybackwednesday#art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #aaaw

As I am continuing to work my way through a significant bit of playing card graphics for a current work---I am revisiting some of the pieces that I have done in the past that included a good number of them. Turns out I have indeed tackled this subject quite a few times. (shown: Detail from “The Art of Illusion, 20x16”, Oil) #detail #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #representationalart #trompeloeil #aaaw

Still drawing in quite a bit of playing card graphics on this latest work. Still a ways to go but getting there! #wip #longwaytogo #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #representationalart #trompeloeil #aaaw

Bone continues to be among the most challenging and fulfilling textures I can explore. I highly recommend attempting to draw/paint it sometime. #funtextures #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #aaaw

Invested in painting some very detailed cigarette ashes...
and enjoying the challenge quite a bit...

Repost of an early work from friend and colleague Jacob Pfeiffer ( @jacobapfeiffer )!

For this week's waaayback wednesday: An early one that still seems to be a favorite for many: Foul Ball, 8x10", Oil. Hope you dig it! #waaaybackwednesday#art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #aaaw

Thrilled to have launched into another commission that is as touching as it is unique. More to come on this one... #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #wip #aaaw

Still can't recommend alla prima studies enough as a vehicle for deliberate practice to develop skill-sets for drawing with paint. Shown here, a 30 minute study from our alla prima challenges series. Even if you are aiming for hi-def realism you should give it a try! You'll benefit more than you realize. #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #arted #arteducation #allaprima #deliberatepractice #aaaw #smartermarx

Here's a few early progress shots from a recent work titled "Espy", 10x8", Oil on Panel. If you are a member of our smartermarx forum you can see some cool in-progress shots in the Work-in-Progress Gallery under the Artist/Educator Resources category. Hope this finds you all having an awesome weekend!!!!! #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #wip #aaaw #smartermarx

As some of you may know, I often hide the number '42' in my works (yes, a nod to the classic Hitchhiker's Guide by Douglas Adams.) I usually do not reveal how/where the number is hidden---but I'm bending the rules for this week's Waaayback Wednesday. Here is how the number was "embedded" in one of my favorite shadow box pieces, "The Fishers" (7x5", Oil.)#art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #42 #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #wip #aaaw #waaaybackwednesday

Launched into another special project this week. I am so very thankful for all of the engaging projects that I get to immerse myself in this year. Much more on the way~~~~#art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #wip #aaaw

Among all of the stellar work at this year's Capturing Realism exhibition I will be sneaking in this little 7x5" still life. (Shown: Late, 7x5" (DETAIL)) You know, before I had painted this I had NO idea that berries like this had those tiny "hairs" on them. I learned that they are actually remnants of the "pistils" (the female portion of the flower.) Many believe that they help in protecting the fruit from insect damage. Pretty neat...Hope to see you at the show #capturingrealism #cr2017 #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil

It seems the natural wood with the linen white float was the trick for 'The Eleventh Hour'. The gallery just informed me it sold and is now in a private collection. YAY!!

A BIG congratulations to the winners of the 2017 GCA Still Life competition! I was so very proud to see good friend and colleague Emma Hirst ( @emmachristinehirst ) not only make it to the "finals"--but that she was able to create something quite wonderful in only six days. I wouldn't have stood a chance as I don’t think I could have kept up with her (or any of the artists) at that pace. So a big congratulations to her and all the participating artists this year!

There are commission works that are special... and some that are SPECIAL. This one was by far the latter. I present, (with the new owner's permission of course), "Ancora Imparo" (12x9", Oil on Panel) which translates to "I am still learning." As I mentioned before, being able to create a representation of, or homage to, another artist's work that I admire is what I imagine it is like for a musician to re-imagine a great song. It was a fantastic experience and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity. I hope you all enjoy it as well. #ancoraimparo #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil

For some weird reason, this painting has yet to find its home!

Once again, it's back in my studio / woodshop for the 4th time! I've decided instead of 'reworking' the painting itself for what seems like the millionth time, to spruce it up with a new lighter frame.
It seems to be a much happier piece now!! This piece, 'Summer's Here!' 36" x 36" is destined for @susanpowellfineart later today!! #pollyseip #pollyseipartist #susanpowellfineart #summerishere #oilpainting #oilpainter #art #fineart #maritimeart #beachart #atthebeach #whataview #buyart #summershow #newengland #summerinnewengland #ajmeerwald #opsail2012 #framemaking #womenworkhardifnotharder #artist #studio #4thtimeisacharm #representationalism #contemporaryart #contemporarymaritimeart #maritimeartist #magic #instagood #themagicofsummer
