If their sad puppy eyes don't convince anyone to take them home then they will meet Mr. 4" brush and Mrs 5 Gallon Bucket of Gesso . . . . soooooo if ya' want em better get em while ya can cause I'm a makin room in my flat files:)

IN PROGRESS "Smokin Colors" 10x14 Oil on Panel

I thought I'd put something up on the blog that related to some of the pieces that I do for Art4Diapers. A while back I did a series of self portraits for this blog that I thought would lead to a larger piece. Here ya go. It's about 75% there. Hopefully it will be done in time for a competition in town here. I'll post a better photo of the finished piece once it's done.

DAILY DIAPER #265 "SURPRISE!"

To bid on this painting click the diaper below.
 This was a combo of a couple of things that I picked up a while back on the clearance rack at a local store. I loved the look of this little guy. . . you squeeze him and his eyes bulge out. I know he's from a cartoon but unfortunately I must say that I don't know which one. My daughter doesn't watch much TV, though she already Elmo (a terrible harbinger of things to come I think.)

DAILY DIAPER #264 "Angelic Torrit"

Another piece done only with TZ White, Gamblin's Torrit Grey and a touch of Lamp Black. This pose just seemed like it should be in an old french painting with this head on a winged body looking up to the heavens for answers.

DAILY DIAPER #263 "Extra Virgin Eggs"

Any cooks out there will definitely be able to relate to these guys. One of my first jobs was waiting tables and working in a kitchen in a fairly greasy diner. Through the years I worked in many restaurant from "hole-in-the-wall" bars to fairly upscale dining working next to trained chefs. I have a true love of food and cooking and this piece has just a couple of the essentials in my kitchen, maybe yours too?

DAILY DIAPER #262 "Ohio Country"

To bid on this painting click the diaper below.
This is a smaller version of a larger painting that I layed in a few months back and leaned up against my wall and kinda forgot about. The larger is 20x16 and to kind of get myself back into the mindset I painted this little guy with some subtractions from the larger one. This was a run down barn that was sitting out in eastern OH on what turned out to be a wonderful day for clouds and light as it pertained to landscape painting.
