Something in the works, I'm also trying a different color palette with this one. I'm thinking the title "The Adversary" would be fitting. It's still pretty early so I'm sure stuff will change. ๐Ÿ™‚

You're probably getting tired of seeing this guy but this isn't just fantasy art, it's a part of my life. It means something and that my friends is worth spending time on.

There are times in this life when we try and describe beauty, other times we can capture it on film or with a photo. Then there are the ones who can reproduce it with their very own hands. I never take this for granted, nor will I ever pass on the opportunity to paint what I find beautiful.

What is beauty though? I believe if you come to the realization that whatever you're looking at that nothing needs to be added, altered, or removed then you have captured the true essence of beauty.

I wanted to start doing more paintings that involve a better sense of light and shadows. I picked my best friend, my lovely wife, to paint as a practice run.

Just a little snapshot of my progress, it's always fun to start adding the little details. It forces me to think about a lot of things like what would the elements and decay do to something this scale. I'm fairly certain it would attract a ton of buzzards too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Your follows, likes and shares help me a great deal so thank you. Connect with me on Instagram and twitter if you'd like, I'd appreciate it.

Not every piece of artwork you show has to be a masterpiece, I think it's good for people to see you grow as an artist. I personally get embarrassed when I see older work but it's also a reminder of how far I've come.
I'm learning to spend most of my time on composition, color and the general concept before worrying about those details. I was thinking about how cool it would be to have a scene where someone from the old west comes across the remains of an ancient giant.
I like where this rough sketch is going so I will most likely add some nice detailing. Stay tuned if you'd like to see this one finished. Thank you for taking an interest in my work.

By the way, if you're counting the fingers on that giant he is supposed to have six digits. ๐Ÿ™‚

That age-old question from the movie 'Stand by Me', do you think Mighty Mouse can beat up Superman? I did a sketch of this a long time ago but never really finished it until recently. I just kept working on little bits here and there while working on other projects.
The nice thing about painting is if you're not liking the direction of a particular piece you can always set it aside and pick it up later. I find in doing this you will end up with a better piece than what you started with, because from the time you put it down you would've already worked on quite a few paintings and have matured as an artist.

Some concepts flow naturally and rather quick, a solid idea of what I'd like to paint always helps. ๐Ÿ™‚ This artwork is personal as well, from my own experience in life sometimes the path I'm on may come to a dead end with no sign of what direction to take next. When going back isn't an option it's usually then when I keep the faith and one is revealed.

I don't feel like this one is complete yet so I plan on taking this a bit further with the detailing.

I was speaking with one of my best friends recently about his two daughters and how they're coming into their own and making decisions for their future. It reminded us of how difficult a time that truly is, you're still at the age where everyone sees you as a child and yet you're supposed to make these life changing adult decisions and figure out what you want to be in this world. Heck, I know people my age that still don't know what they want to do...
I remember these two beauties when they were still riding tricycles so it's neat to see them maturing and doing wonderful things that make a difference in people's lives. I wanted to do something nice not only for my friend Rich but for Kim and their two daughters as well, something they all would appreciate.
I painted both Taylor and Tasha in grey scale first and then later added their own favorite colors to make each piece unique. I asked Rich to think of something they both like that would add to the painting and he mentioned how they would always point out butterflies when they were in the mountains. When he mentioned butterflies that's all I needed to come up with some ideas.
You may meet a lot of people in your lifetime but very few enter in that circle of complete trust, my friend Rich is one of them so it's an honor to paint his children for him and his family.

I have five Atom Bomb Cola prints left over from an art festival I attended a while back. I'm selling these as a set and at a discount price, so it's a good chance to get five art prints for less than half of what you'd normally pay.

These are the perfect size to have framed and take up a fair amount of space in a grid pattern or lined up in a row. This is a limited time offer and it's first come, first served. Ordering details are on my site here:

A while back I did a watercolor painting of a male cardinal, my sister-in-law Lacy wanted to buy one from me but I told her that as many paintings as she's purchased from me I'd just make her one for free. I dare say she has more of my paintings(that she insisted on paying for) in her home than anyone I know.
Having friends & family that believe in your work and want to decorate their homes with it is a thing of beauty.
If you have a friend or family member that's an artist and their work inspires you, I encourage you to invest in them by buying their work. You'd be surprised what that will do for them, trust me on this one.
I wanted to do a more refined piece of work for her than the loose splattered style I normally do. After Lacy receives hers I plan on having a very limited run to make it all the more unique.

I completed this one over a month ago but I wasn't too eager to show it out of respect for her loved ones. Sandy passed away this year and this painting was presented to her husband by some close friends who happened to be my sister-in-law and her husband. It's always touching to do a piece like this because I hear how much they are loved and how they affected those around them.
I painted this from a popular photo of her, I believe it captured her in her element and shows how much happiness and life she really had. Nothing could really ease the pain of a lost loved one but I hope it offered a little comfort in their time of grief.

I'm currently trying to add more exclusive artwork to my site that can only be purchased directly from me. While I appreciate the art distributors I have, when they sell my work there's a disconnect between me and the customer. I want this store to have my artwork not being sold anywhere else to make it personal and unique. I kind of feel like I'm starting all over again, ha. ๐Ÿ™‚ Any requests on a particular art subject feel free to make them and I'll do my best to add something to my gallery.

I added this female cardinal from a customer who wanted one to go along with the male I currently have in the store. Thank you for taking an interest I really appreciate it. Have a nice weekend everyone.

Our recent move has kept me from updating as much but I'm finally getting settled in and I just purchased some new supplies. I'm in an area where western themed and motorcycle art is very popular so you just might see some new pieces from me based on that. It's just a thought really, to me artists should stick with their passion and not what they think is popular.
I recently received some emails from people that wanted to share their appreciation, I honestly love it when people do this because it's neat to see their framing and placement choices. There's also something really special when people choose my art to decorate their homes with, it's humbling and makes me very appreciative. Thank you for sharing!

Donna Michael SchwarzI keep my cardinal print in the bedroom so I can look at it every night, because it has always been said when you see a cardinal it means your loved one is near , That's the thing I want to think about while falling asleep that Layne is close so I thank you for that my friend.

Judy MaceI feel like it's okay to satisfy "markets" because it makes your work and your talent more available, if you want people to have an opportunity to purchase. It opens the door to conversation about what else you can do or like to do. An artist will always have some signature work that people will recognize for a long time. I hope you have great success in that area and keep us posted !

Something I like doing is take everything I'm familiar with when painting and go the opposite direction. Some of my popular selling items were made this way. Try it sometime, use colors you normally wouldn't, try brushes that are unpredictable but always keep that enjoyment level consistent. ๐Ÿ™‚

Painted in ArtRage 5
I added additional watercolor textures around the edges to accent this piece. Digital painters I'd highly recommend grabbing these textures to enhance your work, you can pick up 70 textures for 2 dollars. www.etsy.com/listing/453386180/70x-stock-pictures-11-watercolor-stock?ref=shop_home_feat_1

They're also made from a talented watercolor artist Aurora Wienhold

I was hired to do some simple sketches for a video promo. The style requested was that of something you'd see done on a whiteboard. They took the work I did and animated a hand to where it looked like it was drawing it in real time. The video has been out for a while now so I figure it's safe to show you a few samples I had done. ... See MoreSee Less

Commander Shepard I painted with the new ArtRage 5. Fans of the series will definitely know which class she is just from the weapon she's holding.

As many of you know I create a lot of paintings in a program called ArtRage. I was recently commissioned by the good people of Ambient Design (creators of ArtRage) to create a painting in their up and coming new release ArtRage 5.
This is one of my favorite programs to paint with so to be asked to paint something for them is an honor.

The overall concept of this piece is the ArtRage portal symbolizes a gateway to creativity.

It's neat how popular these whimsical paintings are. It's more than just the artwork though, it's the beloved pet in the art that the people love. I've heard and seen so many people get emotional over their paintings, some laugh and some cry. It just goes to show you that they're more than pets, they're family.
This one was a Christmas gift so I had to keep quiet. I just got a text that Jimmy received it and loves it.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I had the privilege of beta testing the new ArtRage 5 and I must say they're making some amazing improvements to an already powerful program. They've added quite a few new features like perspective tools, brushes, layer effects, and cosmetic enhancements. One of my favorites is the custom brush where you can easily design your own brushes to behave and texture however you want.

I wanted to make a point and create a painting entirely in ArtRage 5 to show the power of the program. I've said this before but if you have a traditional background and would like to get into digital painting without a big learning curve, definitely let ArtRage be your first pick.

One of the many paintings I've been working on lately. I really like the sense of scale with this one, if you look closely there's a cliff diver in there on the right. The fun part will be adding all the cliff and water details.
I enjoy doing work like this because it allows me to create places I'd like to visit.

Received this 18 x 24 " metal beauty today.
Painting for people is fun but it's equally fun to see the Fed Ex driver drop off the box with your artwork inside. I always have that brief moment of 'what ifs " but it quickly goes away once I start opening the box.
These metal prints are top notch, I haven't heard one bad thing about them from my customers. They're definitely built to last and make for one unique wall art.
This one gets delivered tomorrow, she's already seen a sneak peek of it and approves. Coming from a big Wonder Woman fan I'd call that a win. ๐Ÿ™‚

Judy MaceI have used this kind of board also. I also make my own small ones using leftover conservation mat board with several coats of gesso, making fun textures, sanding it between coats if I want it smooth. I spray final painting with a satin fixative for water media. Love your painting-lucky customer!
