Old painting from university days. I used to go to bars photographing fights and confrontations. The photos were usually really grainy and bad which made them perfect fodder for painting.

Been working hard to clear out old work and get some new stuff on the go. I always procrastinate this process, but once I get started it’s pretty hard to stop. I’ve also been working on some support paintings that will flesh out the next group of work. It’s nice to take a break from the main narrative vein and just wander around a bit, visually speaking.

It’s funny looking at all of this work in chronological order because you start to see patterns in paint application. Never a dull moment!

Here is another peek at a painting of a fisherman that I’ve been working on steadily for the last month or so. I’ve been posting more regularly on instagram because it’s so much faster (and easier), but I wanted to make sure to release some of these photos onto the blog for those who don’t have an account.

So I’ve begun some preliminary work on a new series of paintings. Here are a few shots from my studio recently. I started off this year on a completely different project, but it never really materialized as I’d hoped. The struggle between the image and the material has reached a fevered pitch in my work lately, so for the first time I’m beginning to apply the paint on thick. Let’s see what develops!

Here are some paintings that never made it to the gallery wall from 2011. I included some drawings from an old sketch book as well. There’s something nice about moving because it forces you to dig through your belongings and remember what you were investigating.

I’m putting up some progress shots along the way in an effort to illuminate how the painting process works (in my case) and how the image can change over time.
