This is the promotional image I painted for Youngblood Theatre Company's upcoming production of MINNESOTA MOON by John Olive. This production will be playing around the same time as Youngblood's production of GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES by Rajiv Joseph. Both plays are definitely going to be worth looking into.

These past few months have been kind of insane. A bunch of ridiculous events, sometimes for better, but more often for worse. So, with that said, I have not seen much of my studio, or that area of Milwaukee for that matter.
However, lately things have more or less slowed down, and I've found a few nights to spend some time on the many paintings I have started. Although I do have some large, intense oil paintings in progress, I have also started a bunch of smaller, more playful acrylic paintings. These were started with the understanding that my time to paint has become less available to me. (At least on non-commission terms...) And right now, in what seems like a sea of unfinished work, a finished piece can really restore the motivation to keep the other paintings going strong.
Here I've posted an acrylic painting i have started. Although similar in content to the previous portrait I've posted, this painting gives a greater role for the ribbon in the composition, while not taking away from the beautiful individual wrapped up in the ribbon. For a while now I have been in love with that light blue, and I find myself using it where I can. I don't have a specific outcome for this painting yet. All i know right now, is that of so far, I like where it's going.
