New stuff

I thought I would keep everyone updated with what's going on in my studio, aka living room.  I completed the meat still life and have started another Vanitas for an invitational at Principle Gallery.  I'll post some pics of it once it looks like something. Kate will also be participating with a much cooler still life than mine.

I am pretty burnt on still lifes so I wanted to focus on some figurative work for awhile.  I had to take a couple steps back on the fisherman piece as I decided that having a second figure really didn't add anything.  So after some swearing followed by crying followed by more swearing I went back to do more color studies.  I probably cried again somewhere in there.

Sneaky sneaky

What's better than a gallery that does everything they say they're going to do?  How about a gallery that does even more?  M Gallery has a sneaky habit of throwing together amazing shows and putting my work in magazines without even letting me know.  I tend to find out about it when an editor contacts me or when a magazine shows up in the mail.  They kind of remind me of the cobbler's elves who would come out at night and do all the work without asking for any credit.  It took great personal fortitude against temptation to resist photoshopping some elf ears onto a picture of Maggie and posting it here.
