and in paint

This may come back again later, though not like this. Here's the painting based on the sketch. Sometimes I loose all detail on these 6 inch paintings :(.

Anyway, though no one may want it, I promised an explanation to go with the painting. To put it simply its about disconnected emotions. Disconnected in the fact that the target may not be something that you can attach directly to the emotion. Hence shadowy forms. The basic emotion (haha) we boil down to in this process is confusion.

Fire Hoses

I'll let you guys think about it. It's probably not what you're thinking. Though it's prolly just crazy.

Wednesday Night Life Drawing

Here are the sketches from tonight's Life Drawing.

This is our model Wes. Wish I had more time on the hands. Wes was a very charactered model, as you can see below.

Wes, as a worried Samuel L. Jackson

Wes, from Cats (Thunder Cats that is).
Zoinks! There's ghosts in that theater! And, Wes as Shaggy.
These were some of the final sketches, where Wes tried to portray a mob surrounding a pink bull (thanks to the National G).

The Bees

After listening to a report on bees, I was inspired to try this for today's Day One painting.

Day One Again

I'm trying to start it again. I've got lots of little pieces of masonite ready to go. For those that don't remember this belongs to my series of paintings all executed at one sitting. I'm going to try to do one a day during the week. Enjoy

Finished Painting from Life Drawing

Ok, finished being a relative term. I'm finished because I don't want to go any farther with it. The more I work certain parts, the less cohesive the whole painting is. I love the sketched out figure, and just wish my phone took better pictures in low light.
