Ive had these old oak pallets for awhile that Ive really wanted to do something with. And yesterday after messing for a bit I came up with this.
It is an American Goldfinch painted in acrylic on reclaimed oak. 20 1/2 inches tall by 15 inches wide. Im not quite sure what Im gonna do with him yet, but I will shop him around friends and family then go from there. I do know one thing though, it weights a friggin ton. Its a good 7 lbs, so I need to look into a good mounting system for hanging.
WHAT WAS I THINKING?! I was just going through my posts and I was shocked to find out that I never posted this on here. Back in early september 2012 I sculpted this, a Graboid monster from the movie Tremors. It is 3 inches tall and about 6 inches long poly clay painted with acrylic and clear coated. If you notice one of the tentacles is cut off and bloody. Just like in the movie.
I recently bought the complete Batman the Animated Series DVD set and have been totally immersed in the world. So in honor of the Bat I started painting a set of the characters. So far I have two done, but I want to add the Joker and Batgirl. Maybe I will paint even more but I have so much that I want to paint that I may have to take a break from Batman art. These are both 11X14 acrylic on canvas.
Heres a painting that I just finished today. Its an 18X24 acrylic on canvas painting of the skull logo from the comic The Punisher. I took the more symmetric, black and white logo from Marvel, and "roughed" up the shape and added some shading. I think the outcome works well, unique enough to be mine but still recognizable as The Punisher.
Heres a painting I did a few months ago for an uncle of mine. Hes a big Trek fan and Mr. Spock is his favorite character. I was sketching out a few ideas for different paintings and I came up with this. Its an 11X14 acrylic on canvas painting of Spock in minimalist style.
He is proudly displayed next to an Enterprise model.
This is a painting I did for my cousin back at the beginning of the year. Its my take of a "pop art print". I used freezer paper to make a reusable stencil to transfer the image. The painting is of the American astronomer, astrophysicist and cosmologist Carl Sagan. Sagan is most known for is PBS series The Cosmos, and he is a favorite of my cousin.
I was looking at a wall in my parents living room the other week and felt it was kinda bare with only a clock hanging on it. So I decided to paint something to spice it up for them. I pulled the colors from their area rug, gold with dark brown and a touch of red. After I doodled for a bit this is what I came up with. Each piece is 16X20 acrylic on canvas.
