Finished Dance

I guess it is done, I hope it sells and people like it. This was inspired by another picture but only the layout idea...mine is supposed to represent the elements and to some degree the Pagan song, Lord of the Dance. This is "Lord of the Dance", 20 x 16 Acrylic and Pro White on Canson board. Original and prints for sale. Picture 10.

Yet More Art I Shouldn't Be Doing

I bought a lovely little oval frame a while back with a bubble glass and wanted to do something special for it. So Here is "Winter Flight" (If you can think of a better title, tell me) , 8 x 10 oval, Acrylic and ProWhite on Canson board. Original and prints for sale. Picture 9.

New Non Commission Work

Because I can still no concentrate on what I need to be doing, I started this. It is pretty far along but I am not sure what I think of how it is coming out. And ideas, comments, suggestions would be welcome.

Naked and Done

Finally I have another finished picture and it is a woman and I like it! I do wish some of my butterflies were a bit better, but I was going for a look and not perfect realism with them. The colors are a bit off on the scan, but not to much. "Butterfly Effect", 10 x 15, Acrylic and a tiny bit of Prisma Color on Canson board. Original and prints for sale. Picture 8.

More Nude Female WIP

I had hoped to have this done by now, but things never go as planned. I had also planed to have her hair be mostly just black with no detailing, very stylized. But after Pyracantha asked about it in the last post I realised the lighter strands, which I liked, did not works so well with a featureless black area as the rest of it. So now I have stylized but more detailed reddish hair. More work to come, maybe it will be finished today!

Multiple Projects

OK, so I have the fight picture, the shield I want to do and started but have not got far on, another Japanese print style picture that I am not sure I like so far and this.  The working title (which may change) is "Butterfly Effect" it is 10 x 15 Acrylic on Canson board. So far it is pretty monochromatic but when finished it will be full color.

Fixin For a Fight

OK, I am finally getting to the next 2 pictures I owe a client for his fight story. I thought my first sketch was a a bad start but he liked the basic idea. So here is the next altered version based on his notes. Rough sketch, no title yet, 8 1/2 x 11 pencil on Canson board.
