And Some More Encaustic Paintings in Progress

November 27, 2012

Here are some more encaustic paintings and iterations. Four on wood arranged annoyingly and one on plexiglass.

I’m still working on all these. This is a weird medium and I need more practice with the flame-thrower.

This Jake Sutton Character

November 25, 2012

I received a certain motivation to start this excellent portrait of Jake Sutton.

Please note: The Sutton family are distinguished patrons, so they get bonus artwork.

I’m gonna need to work a bit on the FACE.

Gonna do a slight pink adjustment and after that: Fuck it, I’m varnishing these and they’re done.


These are very much varnished and done.

These Old Skull Paintings

November 24, 2012

I just pulled these out with the intention of painting over them, but upon further inspection I’m not certain what to do with them. Sure it’s impractical to own two gigantic paintings of skull faces, but y’all are rich.

Oh crap I have detail views

And then I varnished them

These paintings are reversible

Big Ole Paintings Submitted to a Juried Show

November 23, 2012

This show is at Pirate in Denver. It’s a juried show, so I have no idea if I’ll get in. But take a look at these old 36″x48″ paintings I need to show more often and ultimately sell for $700 of MONEY.

More Encaustic Paintings in Progress

November 20, 2012

Here are some more encaustic paintings and iterations. Two on wood, one on plexiglass.

I’ll probably be working on these for at least a few more class sessions. This is a weird medium.

Some of these are looking like a fine cheese and tomato sauce so far. All delicious.

Bordo Bello 2012 Paintings

October 27, 2012

Hey, I found a photo of my boards at the actual Bordo Bello show this summer.

Here’s a cropped version of an event photo from Wink Inc & AIGA Colorado:

Yes, I know I painted these on the “wrong” side of the board, but that was because it looked like there was some trouble hanging at the first show I participated in. I see now that they’ve got a solution for that with the wood strips.

Jalapeño Slices and Sushi Rolls

October 14, 2012

It’s important to have a circular pattern in the background of your painting.

A circular pattern which resembles the roundness of purple jalapeño slices, goddamn olive slices, and perhaps some sushi rolls.

Bordo Bello 2012 Paintings

August 26, 2012

I just started with these, so hopefully I can get ’em done by Sept 6. I will say that after about 10yrs of neglection, I finally understand the importance of gesso.

Yeah, I’m gonna have to be done now. Gotta drop these off tomorrow.

Jesus Was A Punk Rocker

August 26, 2012

Whoa, this one is 36″x48″ and apparently it’s called something like “Satan Eat My Spleen”.
