One Sided Conversation

Definitely not the newest piece, but probably the one I see the most often. This sucker hangs above our bed, and gives me lots to look at before passing out.

Wow, these colors are terrible. I will attempt to take a better photo.

This is an old piece, but it just occurred to me that I never did post it. Acrylic on plywood.

New piece, primarily ink on un-stretched canvas.

new piece

This has gone through a few incarnations, with several layers. Finally I'm happyish with it.

On a side note, I'm looking forward to starting work on a sort of challenge I've recieved. An Erotic art show will be held at the Roncy Street Gallery in Toronto in November, and I'm to make three pieces. I've heard a few artists I know say they were slightly unsure about making erotic art, but I'm actually pretty excited about it. It's nice to have a challenge!

I'll keep you updated, post images etc.

This is my partner's favorite of my pieces. It's shiftier than my usual work, it likes to make you look everywhere at once and try and settle on one thing. acrylic, pastel.

This is a big-ish piece done on a table top.... which makes it hard to hang! It's too heavy for traditional hooks and hangers, so once it goes up it needs serious drywall anchors or masonry anchors. I have yet to find a spot for it on my walls.
It's a painting over a painting, so some of the original details come through, like the hand from the nose! That was just too cool to get rid of. I like the way things like that double up and make the finished image look.... wise, somehow.
Acrylic mostly in this one, no pastel. The smooth surface didn't call for the Pastels, only wanted the paint, and that was fine for me.

A few more from the mask series

The top image is a detail of the whole. I use a lot of layers in my work, using the overlap of colors to build texture, shadow, etc. This is the darkest piece in the series, really pushing the application of layers. The depth of tone is achieved here with the use of pastel and acrylic layered.

This is one of the more recent pieces, done on raw canvas with pastel, then sealed.

These two pieces were done back to back, so the colors are more similar in life than in photo. Acrylic, pastel, pencil crayon.

I'll start the posting bonanza with some of my older work from this series. These are three pieces from early 2010. The two lower, square ones are on wood panel, the top on canvas. Acrylic and Ink.
