A Week In Review, October 15, 2023
Hello, art enthusiasts! Welcome to my weekly review where I share my latest creations and give you a sneak peek into what’s coming up. This week has been another whirlwind of color, emotion, and creativity, with a perfect blend of commissioned pieces and my own imaginative bursts. Let’s dive in!
1. Milk And The Kitten Starting the week off on a playful note, I introduced another addition to my bottle series – “Milk And The Kitten”. This whimsical 10×20 original acrylic painting captures the curious spirit of a kitten, comfortably afloat on a plate inside a milk bottle, quenching its thirst. The piece aims to evoke a sense of innocence and joy – two emotions I felt deeply while painting it.
2. Dyinn’ Ain’t Much Of A Living, Boy Paying homage to the legendary Clint Eastwood, this commissioned piece turned out to be an absolute pleasure to paint. Drawing inspiration from the film The Outlaw Josey Wales, this acrylic masterpiece showcases Eastwood standing dominantly in a doorway. To add an extra layer of nostalgia, the iconic line, “Dyinn’ Ain’t Much Of A Living, Boy”, was added upon the client’s request, setting the tone and mood for the entire painting.
3. The Walk Undoubtedly, the crown jewel of this week has been “The Walk”. A sizable 24×36 commissioned painting, this piece showcases a mirrored split character approaching the viewer. On one side, an airman or fireman emerges valiantly from smoke and flames, while the other half introduces an EMT or LEO against the electric backdrop of a neon-lit Seattle skyline. My client provided an open canvas for the background, granting me creative liberty, which I thoroughly relished. This painting is a tribute to heroes, resilience, and the juxtaposition of chaos and serenity.
Looking Ahead As we venture into the coming week, I’d love to manage your expectations a bit. While I’m bursting with enthusiasm and ideas, the sheer scale and intricacy of the incoming projects mean that they may take a tad longer to complete. But trust me, they are going to be worth the wait!
I’m currently engrossed in an awe-inspiring Lich King piece, two intricate Warhammer paintings, the electrifying ghost runner neon original, an intriguing artwork inspired by the book series Starshatter, an AC6 masterpiece, and lastly, a grandiose semi-truck painting. The excitement is real, and I cannot wait to share these with all of you soon.
Thank you for being a part of this artistic journey with me. Until next week, stay inspired and keep appreciating art in all its forms!
