I know the title of this post says “New Painting”, which is more like a half truth. To be more accurate, I should really call it newly “finished” painting. As evidenced by the following video, this painting was made back in January.

Why has it taken sooooooooo long to finally be available? Well, if you’re familiar with my work you know about the glossy resin coating I use to cover my paintings. Be warned, I get a little overly-wordy here, but just think of it as a privileged behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in the studio. When I first applied the glossy resin to this I noticed that there was something missing from the painting. This is sort of ridiculous, but I thought it needed a couple of more polka dots, so I scraped off all the wet drippy resin before it got too sticky. If you’ve ever worked with this stuff you can appreciate what a pain in the ass it can be to work with. So, I scraped it off, waited a few days, then painted some more polka dots. Then it was time to resin coat the painting again. After waiting 3 days for the resin to fully harden I noticed a spot on the painting where the resin didn’t quite sit right. Basically, there was a little dimple in the resin. It might have gone unnoticed to some, but it was all I could see when I looked at the painting, so I decided to lay down another coat of resin. But, I waited. Months went by until I finally resin coated the piece for a third time. Now it is ready for the world.

Enjoy!

Four New Four Inchers

I just finished these little 4″ square paintings yesterday. Or maybe the day before. This 90+ degree heat where I live makes my brain all fuzzy. Anyway…
I have four new paintings available in the shop now. They are all 4″ x 4″ on wood and are $40 each, plus shipping. Since they are brand spanking new you can use the code “EARLYBIRD” to get 20% off for the next 24 hours. Like that old phrase goes, “The Early Bird Gets 20% Off” or something like that. If you’d like to add any of these paintings to your art collection or send them to somebody you’ve been stalking, simply click the image and you’ll be taken directly to my shop. Also, I highly suggest using the Paypal option for payment because the other method takes about 3 days to clear, which will totally delay shipping. Here we go!


“French Dude”


“Let’s Escape”


“Let’s Hug”


“Tour Guide”

When I come up with titles for my paintings it is usually after I have photographed them and am saving them on my computer. I need a title at that point because I refuse to save photos named “IMG4169” or whatever the camera auto saves each image as. So, when I was saving all these I was listening to French music and that totally influenced the title for each of these paintings. I hope you enjoy them.

If you have any trouble ordering or the EARLYBIRD code doesn’t work, let me know and I’ll help you out.

Thanks for your support!
