Angel

suspense
This poor girl has been balancing like this for over a year. 

I put the canvas painting on hold to use my precious studio time for work on my illustration portfolio.

So there she stood, waiting to be finished.

I would move her around. 

On the easel.

Off the easel.

On the floor.

Out of sight.

In my face, begging to be completed.

I was cleaning my studio yesterday, clearing the clutter in an effort to clear my mind.
I need to focus on specific goals and complete about six book ideas that are also, sadly waiting for Moira to give them the attention they deserve or at the very least the mercy of the recycle bin.

I decided a good start would be to complete this painting.

It was fun to use actual brushes and paint. I also remembered how much harder it is to fix any mistakes. There is no "undo" that I can click to go back in time. 

So here she is.

Suspended in time and space but complete.

How 'bout them Red Sox

What a lovely weekend.

Beautiful weather for the Sox' home opener.
This nice weather inspired me to do some spring cleaning.

We had some delays delivering the scoreboard mural that I had made for a charity auction. A couple of years of the usual interruptions of life along with bad weather kept it from being delivered.  It's too big to fit into the beach wagon, so it's got to go in the pickup.

The sun was shining, the truck was in the driveway the new owners were going to be home,  so it finally moved out of the garage and into it's new home.



That was a fun project. I wouldn't mind making another one. I still have the Dropkick Murphys CD.  Let me know if you're interested.

I also stopped by the W.H. Lutz Gallery, in Harwichport.  I had switched out a couple of paintings the last time I was there and I wanted to give him a new price list.

Bill was there, working on a new painting. His studio is right in the gallery.  Stop by and see him if you're in town.  He's always got a positive outlook and is happy to see you.

He'll be even happier if you buy something.

Kids Pics

December is the most difficult month for me to get into the art studio. Eary January is when I can get back in there as soon as I am finished un-decorating. So here are some sledding pictures that my kids did. We don't usually get that much snow on this part of the coast but this winter has been very white so far.

P.S. The "100" in the picture is what Cape Cod kids see when they go sledding at the golf course.

Fenway Mural

4' x 6' acrylic on masonite






I made this mural for a charity auction. It was a fun project that was more time consuming than I expected. The score is from a key game in the summer of 2004 that many think was the turning point for the 2004 World Series winner, the Boston Red Sox. I even bought a Dropkick Murphys cd to be inspired by while I worked.
