Picking and Grinning

It has been ages since I last posted! Here are some sketches from a great party last Friday over at my friend Evans studio. David Garza, Dan Dyer, Darden Smith, Gary Richardson, Evan Voyles (among others) were hitting all the right notes. I was sketching with pencil on paper (was trying to keep a low profile). I may work a couple of these up larger on the iPad with some color.

Cowboy Hat

Wow. I had some problems with rapidweaver (the app I use for my website) and just got them sorted out. It is possible it was five months ago? Time really does fly. I will try to add in the drawings that I have done since then. In the meantime below is a one of several drawings I did of my cowboy hat last month.

Mason 110713

Work has been pretty intense for the last month but I think I can really get back to painting again. I would like to start a new series of paintings… thus far I am grabbing my iPad and painting whatever, however. So now the search for a new series to do, which leads to this post. Maybe doing portraits that are stripped down to minimal elements and limited color.
