May 1st-15th: Art in Review

“Clocktower” held my Marlena Frank.

Lots of stuff done this month so far, and I’m happy with the way thing are currently heading. I’ve had so many projects going, and sadly getting a moderate degree sunburn kept me incapacitated after May 11th, but that doesn’t negate all the other work I’ve done. 

Plein Air Paint-Off
Working on “Clay Plaza” and my sunburn at the same time, oops.

This was a fun event Saturday May 11th held in and around the square in McDonough, Georgia. I prepared two 30×40″ canvases and completed the two paintings in six hours. We had some problems determining our setup location and we almost were rained out, but in the end the paintings are very nice! They’re currently on display at the Hood Street Art Gallery and for sale to interested buyers. 

YouTube Videos

I’ve been hard at work on my YouTube page, where you can find a variety of time-lapse paintings and drawings. The latest is The Juggernaut from the cult horror film Thirteen Ghosts (2001). I completed him months ago, and now I see areas I could improve, but that’s the nature of art: as I make more, I become even more critical of myself. I do want to paint more ghosts though, and my work on Juggernaut really taught me a lot that I used again in Madam Leota and Little God Swamp. Do you have any spooky suggestions? I’d appreciate some!

Patreon
My mermaid painting “Hello, Luv!” is getting the coloring book treatment exclusively for patrons!

 

Patrons are getting some neat stuff this month, from downloadable coloring book pages for my Ankyosurus and Mermaids to with discount codes and sneak peeks at my works in progress, shop releases, and more. 

Like I said, very busy! And this is just the stuff done so far. This coming weekend is Geranium Festival, then MomoCon, then BookCon. Hopefully I’m not still in agony from my burn by then.
