As always, thanks for looking! I did all this at the Safehouse Atelier.

One time I turned in a piece to a client with a strong hit of the color pink in it, and they asked me to change it because it wasn't appropriate for their audience. A very reasonable request, though with the unexpected side-effect of me wanting to use the color pink wherever I can in personal work now!

I did some oil painting back in college, but when I started these paintings I literally hadn't touched a brush in years.
Cast drawing had an impact on these paintings early on, I kept trying to make them about form instead of just abstract arrangements of color and value... which runs counter to what I was taught through most of art school.
Its amazing how you can stare at a painting for hours and not see your mistakes. I've got a bad habit of exaggerating foreheads, as we can see in some of these.
Somewhere in here I started to occasionally get something I wasn't outright ashamed of. Definitely a step in the right direction, I think.
Its painful to have some of these online, but I feel like I've come a long way this year and thought that was worth sharing.
Thanks for looking, can't wait for the next time I can post a year's worth of paintings all at once.

I did these covers for Capstone Press last year. I only just noticed them on Capstone's site, I have no idea how long they've been public.
