Big Honey bear mostly done.

36" x 48" 
finally covered in paint, final details to come...

I don't have a title just yet and there is more to come but it feels like a huge accomplishment to have it covered in paint. This has been taking me so long due to the complicated shapes and subtle color shifts. I will post the final version soon.

The 3 little pieces below are my series called "Tired of Games" , "Rock", "Paper", " Peace." They are 5"x 5" paintings on board.

Max Paintings

Max Too.
oil on board, 6"x 6"

Max with Ball.
(Never Going to Let Go.)
oil on board, 8"x 10"

These are for my dear friend Amy. Max is a blast to paint due to his pointy fur. There could be more coming. I'm still working on my huge Honey Bear and hope to finish in a week or so. I will also post some other miniatures I've been working on later in the day. Just haven't had the time to photograph everything.

Recent work

detail of work in progress

I've been working on this painting for weeks now, very slowly I might add. It is very complicated and I was feeling guilty about not posting so here is part close up and  below is the work in progress. The bottom has the most beautiful red and yellow honey in it and I think when it's all finished, it will be spectacular. It is really large, 36" x 48". So I am taking it slow to get it right with all the complicated reflections and distortion...


Below are a couple small pieces I have fit in at night. I definitely am feeling the difference of my 2 styles, impressionistic when small and photorealistic when large... I guess I can be both.
