Francis Bacon paints anxiety. That's what I feel when I see his paintings. He communicates anxiety like no other.

New show opens at the Tate.

I think it's gonna be a Keane day.

UPDATE: This is now live on Ebay. Click to view.

Today's project-- another band that has moved in and put permanent roots into my daily playlist - Keane. If you haven't heard them yet, for the love of Pete! get to it. You'll thank yourself. Heck--you may even thank way of a box of dark chocolate. Hay! Thanks!

I don't know how far I'll get on this project today. I have the inevitable scheduled-- death and taxes. --wait: no. Just the taxes part. (who schedules death??)

And the Elbow painting's done. Hopefully will be scheduled to go live on Ebay tonight.. (nudging Ralph).

Ralph's new WIP

Artifacts 4

No Orlando, FL on Elbow's tour

wha--why? Elbow--why no Orlando? --don't answer that, I already know.

Ok, but answer THIS: why no New York?! Ah-HAH! We've been known to fly up for a show. Actually, we did a few years back to see sneaker pimps, and when we flew home, they added Orlando as a tour stop. We caught both shows.



So Keane's done and ready to post, and I'm looking for a new volunteer to be painted.
You sir--in the front row!

Always looking for subject matter suggestions... Feel free to comment with any ideas.

Always looking for positive feedback.
Actually, this is one of the clips that we use to secure paintings as we work on them but every little bit helps.

Ralph's brainstorming process.
...and a new one in progress. The original sketch is probably in that shoebox somewhere..

New Work

Just finished this painting entitled "Artifacts 5".

I came across the work of David Cobley recently.

I love his paintings-- but I also love that he isn't bound by the 'stick to your own style' rule. He's very accomplished, and he's all over the place.
See what I mean here.
