There has been a delay in this series, but it will continue soon, hopefully next week if time allows. I’ve been busy working on a few portrait drawings for a good friend, some sweet graphics for work and a few designs for a friend’s wedding this weekend (I’ll be updating my portfolio in the next few days, so stay tuned).
I finished this 4th painting over a month ago, by adding more lines and texture to the ground… about time I show it off 🙂
I have a few sketches worked out for the next two paintings; they’ll be smaller then these last two featuring the red rocks of Utah, but hopefully just as intriguing.
In March I designed a t-shirt for the non-profit organization I work for; here’s the sketch I based it off of. The leaf at the top is part of the logo and is shown asymmetrically in the final design to give those astute viewers something to find.
Breathe easy 🙂
I’ve added my fair share of contour lines, but will add another layer or two of paint for the ground. Almost there, but still have some progress to make.
Utah’s red rocks truly can transform your perspective.
The beginning of the latest painting. Another red rock scene near Arches National Park in Utah. Stay tuned for the final!
Adding color to
my night. Progress is made.
Paint swirls and flows.
The sound of crashing
waves engulfs my entire
being; beams of light.
Just finished developing the second painting to my new series: LandEscapes.
This was inspired after a magical evening spent just south of Big Sur, CA. We were just sitting there, totally engulfed by the waves crashing before our very eyes. There was no need to worry about anything, all of it was before us, washing out with the ebb of the ocean’s breaths. The sunlight was a spectacular site, creating a dramatic skyline from a storm that was creeping into the evening. It was hard to look away from the glowing halos the crashing waves carried as they threw themselves against the sea rocks.
You rock rocks. Thanks for the Escape.
A few resolutions came to my mind on New Year’s Eve, including: get stronger (physically); show others love more often (compassion & kindness); be grateful and act. (The gratitude I have for those I’ve surrounded myself with is too much for words; I can only say thank you for your love and patience.)
I can’t just continue to think about “what if”s and make up excuses, I need to act. This need for action is mostly regarding my lack of creating new artwork and finding that escape I’ve always enjoyed. Today I will act and show some recent action of my creative strides.
Here is the beginning of a series of artwork that’s been on my mind since 2011. It involves landscapes, surrealism, traveling and the importance of light and color against darkness. My goal is to create enough pieces to have a show – one day, when I’m ready (if not by this year, then 2017 for sure). Anywhere, too, a cafe or online or other means, time will tell. It’s coming along nicely, but I have many more to come. Stay tuned.

Words to act on – my InspiRenaetion:
“To Escape the past, one must let go;
To Escape the present, one must look around her and find Love;
To Escape the future, one must not worry, but accept what is to come.” -Me (1/8/16)
