This is Mutt (of "Mutt 'n Jeff" -- another painting from a few years ago featuring a seagull and penguin who were hanging out together in Port Aransas). This will be at the Maranda Pleasant Gallery Holiday Artbox Show on December 5th here in Austin. 12 x 12 x 2 oil on cradled wood panel. SOLD

I wanted this to be super loose to convey the movement of my friend KK's dog Shiner having fun with his tennis ball. I had it even looser than this but, you know how that goes! This is really small for me but I may do a 12x12 oil of it for the Maranda Pleasant show in Austin on December 5th. 5x5 acrylic on canvas. Private Collection.

Portrait of Kelli Bland

November 2, 2009 -- When I'm not sure what to paint sometimes I'll take out an old AFG sketch and try to flesh it out some. Having to try and recall what the model looked like is tricky so as always, it's not an exact likeness. For example I don't recall she really had patchwork hair. 16 x 20 oil on board.
