Only this time they’ve been printed with the finest archival inks onto lush epson paper…and the best part?!?…I’ve just listed them at $18!  How’s that for the Foodie on your list?  But wait…there’s more…

AND…….

my gift to the brosef…

December 27, 2008

He paid a visit to Seattle shortly before his three month journey to Central America.  He put in a small request for a painting of the Seattle trees, and here it is.  Directly translated from his photos, however, a bit abstracted…I’m thinking I might paint more like this…

Blogging will be so much easier after Christmas…until then, a sample will have to suffice.  Remember these? They’ve come a long way.

Some days my artistic vision gets muddled somewhere between my brain and my hand.  Last night, they spoke perfectly to each other.

Back to Basics

September 10, 2008

A recent commission has had me channeling this guy.  I can’t debut the full illustration until October, however, I can say that I’m pretty happy with the direction it has taken.  I think I’ve mentioned before, but I kind of like to “dissect” things…(visually, not literally)…I like the idea breaking something down to it’s main components, and what could be more fundamental than the primary colors?

green abstraction

The whole Green series has left me obsessed with the idea of abstraction.  While the the original Foodie Prints focus on color…the Green series has me studying the lines, textures, and shapes of the food more intricately.
