December Shows

Almost forgot:

Remember the Swell Gallery? I'm honored again to be a part of this gallery where I had my first show about seven months ago. Great people and amazing artwork up there in Dundee! Don't forget to check  it out if you can! Opening is this Saturday from 5-9pm.

I also have work in another show that is currently up right now at the Zhou B. Center in the show "Centerline: State of Mind." My piece there, titled "Unicorn's Woods," reflects the landscape of nothingness in never existing. One of my most abstract paintings, I tried to focus on the idea of what my minds looks like when I think of nothing. What an appropriate place for a unicorn to dwell, in nothing. All of the pieces in the show are all unique to the theme "state of mind" and I highly recommend taking the time to check it out. The show will only be up for a little longer. 

Think spring with warblers!

November was a super busy month for me: I had two commissions to work on as well as some illustrations to finish in my free time. Unfortunately, I didn't have a lot of time to update my blog but at least I had fun painting. This painting was done on two separate sheets of paper and I added them together on Photoshop for the final presentation. My first extant warbler species, the Yellow-Rumped Warbler (breeding plumage, myrtle population):
I really enjoyed painting these birds and more warbler species to come hopefully! Also, I'm itching to try some pyrography. I have all the tools and materials, I just need the time. So, more updates to come with in the next month... But until then, try to enjoy these species of birds that are one of the few warbler species in our area that are seen in the cold winter months.
