2014 SO FAR...

If you are someone that follows this blog, you are well aware that I'm not so great at keeping it up to date. I have started a handful of new pieces. Some sparked from new ideas, and others created from old paintings I had lost interest in. I guess you could call it recycling...
I'd say, that the pieces Ive been working on this year sport my favorite elements of the few paintings I finished 2013. I think the biggest difference between my current paintings, and my paintings last year, is that the current paintings (on a few levels), aren't so.. dark. But either way, I decided to post images of parts of paintings I am either working on or have finished  this year.

I started off this year by finishing a painting created for a friends album cover... mixing imagery pulled from her lyrics, energy and the Chicago skyline.


 


The rest of the images are parts of paintings that all share similar materials. However, they are all very different in composition, theme and size. I guess at this point, I don't have too much to say about them other than I feel that Ive recently been pulling focus away from figures and concentrating more of material, pattern and process.













 I'm sure I will post more complete images.. of whole paintings later on. I have so much more than this started. This will have to do for now :)
