I tend to go "all in" when I do a painting, furiously picking away at details until I am 100% happy with it, and thus leaving myself little room for carefree creativity. In fact, what you can find in my shop is the majority of the work I've done in the last two years. Only recently have I once again made a point of filling my sketchbook with drawings that no one but I will see, and leaving my paints out on my table so that I can return at any time to dab a few more strokes onto a board. It never ceases to amaze me how the hours slip away from me when I immerse myself in art for the sake of art.
This month I have been trying some new mediums and techniques and thought I would share some of the more, ah, presentable pieces.
