The Start Of Something Big

Dream Big work in progress Dream Big baseball painting

Finally started on this large acrylic painting last week. The canvas has been fully sanded and prepped correctly ready to accept the first layers of paint. The first few weeks will be lots and lots of base color. This will take up a lot of paint and a lot of time. So far, I’ve been enjoying every moment of the progress up to this point of the painting.

A Professional Frame Makes Any Artwork Even Better

Friends Acrylic Painting

Professionally framed and on the wall. A good frame always adds to the look of an original piece of artwork. All my frames now come from American Frame. They have a great selection of frame designs and their pricing to quality match is unbeatable. If you want to enhance the look of your original artwork, consider a good quality frame.

Blast From The Past

Baseball Painting Photoshop Superimposed

Senior Thesis Fine Art Baseball Painting

Here’s a blast from the past. I found an old photo from twenty years ago of one of the original acrylic painting I did for my college senior thesis. I superimposed the photo of the painting onto the blank canvas I completed preparing earlier last week. Excuse the white on the right side. That’s me posing next to the painting. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Now I’m really excited to see how this new version of the painting will look when completed.

New Large Scale Acrylic Canvas Painting Surface Primed

Large stretched blank canvas

I’ve been wanting to repaint something I did a long time ago back in college and I finally got around to stretching the canvas and laying down the primer. It’s a huge acrylic painting, 48 inches high by 72 inches long. This giant acrylic canvas painting will probably take a good six months to complete as the painting itself is quite detailed. Looking forward to getting on started on the sketch soon.

Completed “The Uninvited Guests” Acrylic On Canvas Painting

Completed yesterday and signed, the latest acrylic painting in my new series of works. This particular painting brings about a giggle seeing the expression on the subject’s face. This painting shows those moments in children that bring about laughter and joy and reminds us the reason we bring them into this world. The young boy is amused and surprised by all the moving lights that surround him. The curiosity grabs his attention and we see what he sees through the reflection of the glasses.

The Uninvited Guests Final

Nearing Completion

Another painting nearing completion in my series of smaller paintings with a few more days of work. “The Uninvited Guests,” a 16×20 inch piece, is one of nine in a series I am hoping to complete early next year.

La Victoria 100th Anniversary Celebration Acrylic Painting

After two weeks of intense painting every night and over the long Memorial Day weekend, my La Victoria 100th anniversary submission is complete. It’s been a while since I painted anything under a deadline and although it was tiring, the entire experience was very positive and invigorating. I’m quite happy with how the painting turned out in two weeks time. Normally, a piece this size takes me a month to complete.

A Beautiful Day - Final

Happy to have completed this painting today and in only three weeks time. Letting it dry for a day before applying a few layers of varnish to seal and protect it. I prefer painting on large canvases, but it does feel good to finish an original painting in under a month. Already hard at work on my next project.
