Philly Raw Artist’s Holiday Rawk was awesome! Sold a couple paintings, met some cool artists.
2009-present. Acrylic on canvas. What started out as just an experiment turned into a full series. I played around with continuity, the backgrounds flowing from one painting to another. At times, I was working on several paintings at once. Each canvas at one point was used as a palette for the previous painting(s). I played around before and during using abstraction, patterns, and designs. Using some makeshift printmaking methods, the right figure was then inserted into the background, and layers of colors were added, creating a unity in the painting. This series has been a successful and fun one, actually leading to several commissioned portraits in this manner. I am currently taking limited requests for portraits in this style, contact me for more information.

Pencil and paper 2008-2009
A fun series to do, one of my largest. The dilemma of shifting to dinosaur drawings or female figure drawings was solved one day with the seeming illogical “why not both”. One of my largest series (about 25), about 8 are currently at Progressive Galleries in Lancaster, Pa. The rest have been sitting around since my schedule hasn’t really allowed time or money towards framing them all. Hopefully soon I’ll make that happen and they will be able to grace a gallery wall.
