BLOOD & OTHER PRETTY THINGS


My most recent series of paintings revolve around darker imagery, blood, and a loosely plays with the theme of predators in more of an emotional sense, I guess. All paintings have heavy texture and a use of metal leaf. Some of the the imagery has an intended reference to Gustav Klimt as well as religious iconography compositions. These images, I wanted to share, are smaller pieces of larger, more involved paintings. Some which have I have already reworked, discarded, or simply put aside for the time being.
The series will probably remain unfinished for a good deal of time due to a lot of current changes in my life. I dont know when I will get back to them, but until then, there are these to look at...




CHURCH SIGN

Faith Springs had a new logo created for their church, and I was asked to make a new exterior sign with the new logo on it, sooo.... I did. It's your traditional, completely hand painted sign. The lettering chosen for the logo was a little challenging. However, I'm happy with the results.

Here are some pictures :)

GOLD & GRENADES

This is my most recently finished painting. It's painted on a small wooden plaque. The edges are finished with 23k gold leaf. I haven't come up with a title for this painting yet. Although, I'm not sure if I even want it to have one at this point in time... we'll see.

PRIMARY

I got around to finishing a drawing I started about a month ago. I'm not quite sure what to make of it yet. It appears a little random in content, but it's a fun image.
Out of curiosity I played around with color, and this is what I ended up with. I will most likely find other plans for this drawing, but for tonight I thought I'd share this :)
