Self Portrait with James

Oil on Canvas 31" x 40"
This is a current 3rd term project I'm working on currently. This is suppose to be a self portrait from reference. I chose to use a year old image of me and my son that my wife took candidly. I'll update the finish after I give it about 4-6 more hours (23 hrs so far 'cause I'm slow!). [I updated the image Feb 1, 2006]

Lady by the Phone

Oil and Acrylic on Mapel Panel (image is cropped)
[panel 24" x 16" actual image 14" x 18"]

My mom was a great sport to sit for the original reference photographs I took in preparation for this project. I skewed and distorted the original picture in Photoshop and painted according to those changes (i.e. the longer-than-possible neck).

Head Painting

Oil on Canvas Board 14" x 18"

This painting was completed in about 3.5 hours during David Luce's Head Painting class. The model was great.

The Mousekateer

Oil on Canvas Board 20" x 16"

This is one of the first paintings I did during my 2nd term at Art Center (I'm in my 3rd term now). While shooting reference for this project I had my grandpa wear a mousekateer hat and told him to look depressed.
