"A Little More Time"
Acrylic on 20"x20" canvas
Painted while listening to the "Your's Dreamily" debut album from The Arcs.
This represents both my very last painting of 2015 and my very first painting of 2016. For the last 7 years I have a had a tradition of starting a painting on December 31st of one year and completing it in the first hour of January 1st of the new year.

"Dusted With Decay"
Acrylic on 30" x 22" CP paper
This piece was painted in 2011 while listening to Red Hot Chili Peppers. The piece got it's name from a combination of the rust tomes within it and the lyrics to "Police Station".

"Midas"
Acrylic on 14" x 11" Yupo paper
Painted in March 2010
Yupo paper is a super-smooth synthetic paper, and painting on it is MUCH different than the usual cold pressed water colour paper that I usually use for paper pieces. I really had to adapt my style for the paper.

I haven't been painting much this summer, but I did take a two day workshop in August where I learned some new techniques. This is the piece I created in that workshop, acrylic on 18"x18" wood panel. I'm hoping to break out the paints again as the fall weather sets in, but hopefully that won't be for several more weeks.

"Inferno"
Acrylic on 22" x 30" paper
This is one of my earlier paper pieces (painted in 2009), and the first piece I created which I decided to keep for myself. It is currently framed and hanging in my home office.
