A New Painting on its way to California

So I just finished my first piece in a long time that actually sports a human being in it. It feels pretty awesome, let me tell you. Who am I kidding? I just finished my first piece in a while anyway, say nothing of with a human being or not......I've been rocking out in my sketchbook, quite a bit and I am starting to feel a little better about presenting my art here....(new hampshire)

There is not a whole bunch of artists working in my genre here in the boonies......I'm sure a lot of you are saying "duh" to that. But either way here is my new piece...

So this piece has been kind of waiting to happen. Not only have I been having trouble painting in this state but I have really been at an impasse with style and subject matter as well. I am somewhere in between a career longing to do birds doing everything and feeling a little more urban.....and supporting urban style and tattoo culture and the like...so this is where I am going with that....

Also I just recently went to New York to see the stupid Mets.....who need to stop sucking in september......but meanwhile while waiting for the game in Flushing Meadows, I attacked my book a little bit and came up with these two guys trying to place a call. Perhaps they are trying to catch the bus they missed for migration or something.....that would be a cool way to take this.....or maybe they lost their purse, haven't decided yet, but I am excited to be incorporating new bird ideas and multiple bird ideas.....

And this last sketch is for John Buck. May he keep thinking of Pork......

There is actually stuff going on now....so look back from time to time, I'll be updating the beer van slowly but surely.......

Rock out with your Oktoberfest out!
