Venus & Mars

I’ve been busy in the studio working on another pair of works, a drawing and then a painting.  The newest work, titled The Gravity of Venus, is now up on my website, but here is a preview:

I’ve really taken a liking to painting animals lately.  Different animals have been popping up in my work from time to time and this time, after the success and great feedback that I received for my Self-Portrait as a Polar Bear painting, I decided to work in more animals into my newest work.  I think it’s a good fit considering these new paintings are kind of steeped in mythologies.

Check back soon, as while I was painting The Gravity of Venus, I took photos every hour to document the painting process, and I’m in the middle of putting together a little video that will show how I work from beginning to end, hopefully giving a little insight into the amount of work that goes into one of these paintings!
