This was painted this morning
near McBean and Magic Mountain Parkway on the trail above the wash. I had not picked up the paints in a while, so it was pure fun. This was done with the Santa Clarita Artists Association paint outs.

These all sold off ebay in 7 days. I eventually painted a bright red background for the crow and the front portrait of Frankenstein with purplish hues (not the profile) was a small ACEO card, 3 1/2" by 2 1/2" small. I never posted this one because if was so similar to the larger front portrait done in blue-ish hues.

Finished! Happy Thanksgiving!

3 1/2" by 2 1/2" ACEO card, acrylic on canvas. I glazed it so that the finishing paint would randomly skitter across the surface, since some of it lost it's spontaneous appearance. Painting on canvas makes the paint seem even, sometimes too even, and when I glaze, it ads unpredictibility to the canvas, changing the texture forever. I always hold my breath during this stage because getting an even texture will be lost forever.

Almost finished. Gorgeous.

Taking a break from freelance:
Starting a quick ACEO card for ebay. After working on tight drawings for a commercial toy company, I needed to get "rough" on a small quick sketch painting. I've put this one on a more textured canvas and am dabbing earth colors on. I will get back to the animae ACEO cards when I have more time, just needed to loosen up. I am actually working on this one right now!
