i have my first out of state client coming this weekend and she wants a piece from me so i painted this up for her and will tattoo it on her this weekend. the painting is acrylic on canvas 11x14. i included black in my palette for this painting which i hadnt done in over 2 years but i decided to give it a shot again. the tattoo will be about half this size so well see how they compare

Tuesday, February 24, 2009


ok so i've never been accused of being a portrait painter but for xmas everyone at the shop drew names and had to paint a portrait of that person for their little secret santa...except it wasnt really secret. i somehow managed to get Travis, the most experienced painter at the shop.....so hopefully he doesnt think this is garbage. but yeah. it was fun smearing around a bunch of oil paint. i definately havent done that in a while. and i cant remember every painting a portrait. i have some goofy stuff coming up for some paintings.
