works in progress on canvas, 1.28.11

works in progress on canvas, 1.28.11

A good Friday night painting session. Pizza, beer, music cranked while my studio mate, Eric painted figurative narratives across the room.

These paintings in progress are from my continued abstract aerial landscape series. They're starting to take more shape now as I add more layers and introduce new colors. It's also been fun to paint on the wall again instead of the floor or easel.

Abstract works in progress

These paintings are part of my new series of abstracts done in a square format. Travel plays a roll in this series -- referencing maps, aerial landscapes, nature and the figure. My goal with these paintings is to convey more immediacy and to not overwork them. I'm going for a looser quality with less detail and more focus on the larger shapes and textures. Right now I have about 17 paintings going at once.

New year, new painting in progress

My first new painting of 2011 is a continuation of the series of figural abstracts I started recently. More to do, but the basic shapes and composition are there.
