Hey, this triptych printed on three 12″x16″ stretched canvases is available for $200, y’all.
These will be prints on canvas. The sides of the canvas will be black.
These paintings are about dance moves, and they were done quickly in late 2008.
Contact info is michael at michaelherring.net if you’re interested.
Here is a photo of the actual prints. Dangit, the black color on the bottom of the originals screwed up the bottom.

I did another live painting in Lafayette last night. Check it out:
July 7, 2013
Checkemitout I’ve got paintings showing at the Luscious Nectar smoothie bar up in Fort Collins, Colorado during July 2013.
I was not able to attend the opening, but there appears to have been some breakin’ dancin’.
I will be live painting July 19 at this location.
I think both these photos were taken by the promoter and DJ, Chris Whitman.
Alright, the live-painting is done as of July 19, 2013. Here are three photos. First two are from Luscious Nectar and Chris Whitman, and the last is my photo.
Got a good close up of my painting with proper light and alla that, courtesy Chris Whitman.

Just did these in the ol’ sketchbook last night and will most likely elaborate on at least three of them.

Here are some photos of a recent spray-paint project for my cousin in San Francisco.
This was a fun project. I’m down for getting more practice at this crazy medium.

A Smart Hat, 30″x40″x1.5″, Acrylic on stretched canvas, $630
I left a large abstract painting with some random dude* at my last job in Iowa before moving to Colorado four years ago. Here’s the painting on his office wall, I believe.
*Please note: Ben Dillon.

Here’s a wall photo graciously sent to me by the one @jakesutton.
I painted some pank shirt portraits, and the progress photos are over here in “This Jake Sutton Character”.
Collection of Jake and Heather Sutton.

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.
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.
November 24, 2012
These are very much varnished and done.
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

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.

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.
