A certain Justin Brancato character suggested:
For your next show you should install the paintings as if the sides were the FACE of the canvas. You have my blessing.
So I built this city of paintings in progress for the benefit of one Justin Brancato.

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.

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.

Here’s a snapshot of my painting at tonight’s show at Pirate in Denver:
Here’s an old post of the painting in progress.
Oh weird, here’s a photo of the painting from the local weekly:

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.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.

I’ve got this weird painting in progress, thanks to a certain noble patron of the arts. Thank you, Noble Patron.September 23, 2012
I got my shadow all up into these images.
