The Tiny Paintings

I have officially finished my sea creatures painting (The Squid, The Whale, The Jellyfish & The Narwhal (not yet posted due to poor photography).

The plan now is to do 100 tiny paintings (3" x 2.5") of sea plants, sea critters and probably some bones cause I like them. I have no idea how long this is going to take, but I am determined to make it to 100. I'll try to post them in batches of 5 or 10.

The first one is just to show an example of what it is I am doing.

sketches

I am currently in the middle of finishing some new paintings, but not wanting the blog to become stagnant, I have decided to share some of my moleskin sketches. Nothing super fancy, just some drawings to keep everyone interested and happy - hopefully.

Check back soon, my newest painting is almost done - it is taking forever for some reason.

Also, Easter is soon, and I am offering free shipping on all my etsy bunnies if bought before easter, that's less than one week!!

This is Old Art, I know, I know...

For anyone who has been following my art or the art antics of Andrew Daivs for the past 2 years, this piece of art is old news. However, I noticed it somehow slipped by me and never made it to this blog, and it is one of my favorite pieces.

Made for the "Good Wood" skate deck art show series, this was my contribution. It was awesome for Andrew to have asked me to participate in this very cool show which debuted at 555 Gallery in Detroit, and made its second appearance at 3rd Ward Gallery in Brooklyn. A very delayed thanks to all my friend and family who attended the opening in Detroit, I hear the show was awesome. And thanks to anyone who made the Brooklyn show, Andrew works hard to make cool stuff like this happen. Please make sure to keep up to date with what Andrew is doing, he is one of my favorite Michiganders...and so are you Amy, don't worry.
