Thursday Abstract

Here’s another new small abstract piece, “Masquerade.”  This one has the eyes in it again.  Whenever I am doing a lot of pet portraits I get slightly obsessed with eyes.  Sometimes I think if there was just a market for eye paintings, that’s what I would do.  Anyway, here’s the piece.  Hope you enjoy, and have a great weekend.

Tuesday Pet Portrait

You may have noticed I was off last week.  Not from work, just the internet.  So finally I’m back with new work to show.  Here’s the first of the several pet portraits I’ve been working on.  This is Baxter, and he is just the cutest guy.  I really enjoyed painting him.  Hope you enjoy, too.  Thanks.

One last reminder: the Tomato Art 2018 comes down Saturday.  Last chance to get a piece of tomato art this year.  Everything is on sale.  Contact me or come by to see me at the studio, 1108 Woodland Street, next to Art & Invention Gallery.  Pieces from $20 up, so take advantage before the crop goes away!  Thanks, and see you soon.

Tomato Art Festival Winding Down

This is the last week for the Tomato Art Festival work to be hanging in the gallery.  There are a few pieces left, so this is your best chance to get something to celebrate the 15th annual event.  There are small pieces, on sale, and larger pieces, also on sale.  I’ll post a few of these today and Thursday, but try to contact me or drop by before the weekend when it all comes down.  Thanks for the support and see you soon.

Here’s another new, small abstract.  This one actually has a tomato art theme, though that was not the original intent.  I called this one “Tomato Boy’s Dilemma.”  I’ve had some mixed responses on this one.  Some think it’s scary; others see it as fanciful, kind of like a tomato Cowardly Lion.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks and have a great weekend.

Tuesday Pet Portrait

Happy to say I’m a couple of layers into four pet portraits and a child’s portrait.  I also just got a commission to do a house portrait, so I’m back in full swing after the Tomato Art Festival.  (Though I still have the tomato art up for a couple more weeks.)  I should be able to get you some new pet portraits next week, but for now another from the archives.  Hope you enjoy, and thanks.

Thursday Abstract

I got to play around with a couple of abstracts while waiting during the Tomato Art Festival.  This one is called “Lover,” and its a nice little 8×10 painting.  I made a nice modern frame for it and it looks really cool.  You can make up all kinds of stories about what the “figure” is doing, and what the various parts may be saying.  Do the legs mean she is running away, or not willing to commit”  The one eye looks bright and toward the future, but the other is focused down and to the past.  See what other stories you can find in this.  Enjoy and have a great weekend.

Tuesday Pet Portrait

Well, the 15th Annual Tomato Art Festival is now in the past.  It was a good year, but not the best.  I still have some of the small pieces and a couple of the abstracts and will keep them out for the month.  Let me know if you are interested in purchasing one or more.  I’m honored to say the abstract I posted last week won an award at the show, and also sold.  Now that it’s done, I’m starting on 4 new portraits and will be posting them as they are completed.  Here’s one from the archives.  Enjoy, and thanks.

Tomato Art Festival

So the big event starts tomorrow evening.  In addition to the fun silly stuff, I have done a few of the new abstracts with a tomato theme.  I have not shown you all of them (there are only 6) but here’s on that will be in the Preview Party at Art & Invention.  It’s is really cool looking in person, and has all sorts of things going on in it.  Even though it has tomatoes, this is one that you will look at and find new things for years to come.  Come on out Friday and Saturday and see all the new work and have some tomato fun.  Thanks!

Tomato Art Festival

Okay, l was a little unsure about these, but everyone has loved them, and they have grown on me.  There are only seven.  Art & Invention has three, and I have three, but one is already sold.  So, if I can do the math, that means there are only six left.  They are called “Mr. Tomato Head,” and they are pretty funny.  These are $40 as well, and again, if you want one, go ahead and reserve one.  Enjoy.
