I started painting a skull amongst all the ongoing abstract madness.
This one involves COLLAGE. Collage pieces are from a House Industries mailer, I believe.
And now here’s the whole gang so far:
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.
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.
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.
Checkemitout, here’s my first encaustic painting in progress.
- Painting with wax!
- Jasper Johns!
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.
I’ve got this weird painting in progress, thanks to a certain noble patron of the arts. Thank you, Noble Patron.
I got my shadow all up into these images.
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.
This painting is totally in progress.
Eyeball enhancements are always excellent.
Last weekend I mixed way way way too much yellow, so I’m using it tonight before busting out the reds and blues and so forth.
Three panels in progress for Kevin Kooyman’s Panel Project in Iowa.
Built this one up on top of an old painting that recently fell out of my favor. I’ve put three layers onto it so far, and I believe it is due tomorrow (Monday), so it should be done tonight.
(Let’s not talk about Step 2)
Acrylic on stretched canvas, .75 inches deep. 11 inches wide and 12 inches tall. Ready to hang.
This painting will be available via silent auction at Heart Art Denver this Thursday.
Update: Got word from a coworker that the painting was auctioned for $75. And that’s cool.
Just throwin’ some circles into the backgrounds of some paintings.
As I may or may not have mentioned before, it looks like I post more paintings in progress to mlkshk.com than in the here. And that’s cool.
