New Print

Just added to my prints section of my website is this piece I did of the LAX Theme Building.  Called LAX Them Building - Ground Level, it measures 17x25" and comes signed and dated by myself.    While you're at it, check out the other prints I have available, all printed on archival quality photo rag paper.

Nice Grill

So here is a section of an underpainting I just finished.  The final piece is actually a taller vertical, but I just didn't want to give too much away.

Rough Painting

So I'm enjoying posting progress pics for some of the new stuff I'm working on.  This gives you a glimpse of a new painting, still adding layers of color on top of the base layer of burnt sienna. Can you guess what famous house this is?

Latest From the Studio

Just thought I'd post this piece I'm in the middle of working on.  It's a pretty drool-worthy GMC truck I found in Palm Springs.  Just working on the base layer - stay posted for the finished piece, probably within the next month.

TWA Terminal

I'd like to unveil my first New York painting coming out of the studio.  TWA Terminal, Street View, 30x44", $5,000, is a study of the famous TWA Terminal at New York's JFK Airport.  This stunning building was designed by revered architect Eero Saarinen and opened in 1962.  Many changes have been made to the surrounding area, but the graceful form of the structure remains.  This painting serves as a springboard for a larger New York series in the works.
To give you some idea of the process of this painting, here is the underpainting I did (which I do for all my paintings).  I start with basic white, black, and burnt sienna to get the proper tones down.  Once that layer has dried and I've played with the composition to my liking, I go in and start adding layers of color.

New Site About To Go Public!

So looks like my new website will go public this week, along with a brand new painting I've been working on.  Be sure to take some time and really explore all the new goodies.  I've refined the Gallery section and added a popular new print to the Prints section.  Please shoot me some feedback if you get a chance and let me know what you think.

Painting Preview

Happy New Year!  To start things out, I've decided to post a little glimpse of a painting I'm currently working on.  What you see is the sepia tone underpainting.  I'll probably finish this piece in a few weeks and then post the final product.
