Bird Brain

I seem to frequently rely on birds to complete my compositions. They start out as a mess of paint. But when a bird eventually shows up, I can live with that. Until I can't that is.
"Victoire" …as in the "Winged Victory of Samothrace" and slightly  "Père-la-Victoire."
"Keeper of Secrets" an owl who materializes silently and disappears silently.
"Migrant" all animals are undocumented. I guess people are not animals? :-(

"BIRDS …and Other People" painting exhibit

Hurry! Hurry! I'm having an exhibit and it's all about BIRDS.
INFO HERE
32 paintings and drawings and four display cases that detail the entire creative process of illustrating picture books.
I also published a show catalog with extremely high-falutin and entertaining commentary. You can buy it here. It's 64 pages, all color. There's a little video below.

Miasma, Yourasma, Ourasma, oh my!

As the miasma moves into town and settles in, it's okay to catch up on your reading and focus on other things. But that miasma…
Keep an eye on it and batten the hatches!

Crystal Cities

Here are a few recent additions to my "Crystal Cities" series of paintings. I think these go under the broad heading: what I draw when I don't know what to to draw (which is about 99% of the time). More or less the entire series over at flickr.
