What started as a simple 1 layer stencil for a sticker (and possible wheat paste in the near future) turned into a 4 layer stencil I put on some canvas panels. It’s been a while since I’ve worked with multi-layer stencils, which really makes me want to do some screen prints soon. It was a bit tough making sure the layers were lined up without any registration, one of the reasons I’m selling these so cheap. Each one is unique and on an 8×10 canvas panel. I’ll be making more variations, and custom color schemes are available upon request.
I’ve added 10 new stenciled canvases to my Esty Shop! These paintings have been selling fast, but I’ve still got a few left. Check out my shop for 15+ paintings/prints for under $20! For a limited time, you can get free shipping if you use the code NOSHIP!
The Esty shop is filling up with artwork, just in time for the holidays. I’ve got 20+ original paintings and drawings available, as well as more to come. Stay tuned for updates.
I just recently had my easter break (10 glorious days) which gave me the time and motivation to do some painting after a bit of a hiatus (work and some freelance stuff was taking up all my time). I’ve been working with oil markers a lot lately, and have been incorporating it more into my paintings. Although a bit tricky at first, I was able to utilize them to create a painterly effect with more control. This control allowed me to do what I’ve wanted with acrylic, to a point I am using very little of it. These paintings are mainly spray paint, oil marker, and masking fluid, built on layers in a more consistent manner than my previous paintings. At 25, this is my largest series yet, and it seems it may continue for bit more.

One of my earliest printmaking endeavors, it was inspired by the song of the same name by Phish. A haunting, melancholy song, “Esther’s” music is “lyrical, evoking a circus mood, soaring flights through the clouds, and helpless drowning”. The descriptive song lyrics allowed it to be interpreted into images, resulting in the this suite.
