House of Lions Hands

Figure, Landscapes


Mission Garden1

Recently headed down to LA for an excellent painting workshop by Dreamworks artist Nathan Fowkes.
After the workshop,we headed back north and turned off on some remote road that cut through a part of California that felt like another planet. We stopped and painted until the heat and the flies were too much. Flies in the mouth, nose and most irritatingly - in the ears. Since the Fowkes workshop I've been painting every free moment. I had forgotten how fun and magical it can be to paint landscapes. And the same feeling has returned to figure drawing. Here are two pages from a sketchbook of recent attempts. One from a figure session and another painting done on the spot at the Mission in Santa Clara.

Phantom Galleries: Fault lines

I spent the one sunny day of the week listening to Linda Ronstadt's Living in the USA with my Dad in the backyard. He kicked it on a lawn chair, while I practiced my spray can.
Check out my can control (thank you one20crew, all the way back in 2002!)
I started this as a live painting in September last year at the Indy Arts fest in Golden Gate park. Its up now on South First street as part of a two wall Phantom Galleries project.
