here, yeller....

commission, 16"x20", pencil on illustration board

i struggled to take a super photo of this piece, so i suppose this will have to do for now. the photo is also cropped down a good bit from the original.

a blue birch progression

       custom piece, 25"x37"x1.5", acrylic on canvas

this piece will actually hang near "lone red bird" that i posted about a couple of entries below. as i mentioned earlier, the home is decorated with lots of bold accent colors, blue being one of them. the owners really liked the original birch piece and wanted me to create something similar that complimented their home. i've painted a few different birch pieces, but never one with such bold color. it was a fun challenge.

thank you etsy dallas!

lone red bird

 67"x37"x2.5", acrylic on canvas

this is a much larger rendition of a similar piece that i created a while ago. the home where this will be displayed tends to be decorated in an overall soothing palette that serves to compliment bold accents of color, hence the fire engine red bird on its branch.

new year, new deco

13"x36", acrylic on board

happy new year! i hope you had a nice holiday. i certainly did. after taking off from painting for a good week and a half, i started back up on monday. i began by working on these two pieces. they will actually be featured with the other art deco pieces that i blogged about last september. like the others, i was given little images to work from that i then altered a bit. all that to say, i really cannot take full credit for what you see. these should be the last of the art deco series. 

a good eve to you! it's nice to be back.
