Hello everyone. Sorry I'm late. Traffic was a bitch and well, I'm sure you know what a hassle it can be commuting from a bird farm to the Intra-WEB, especially when you can't seem to the www to make on off ramp to one's bunkhouse. How have you all been? It's good to imagine seeing you all. Well, lets get started. Here's the first real piece of art I've made in the last seven months. It was a long time coming, but I kinda dig it. The lighting is a bit forced and, if you're reading this Russell, the proportions on the character are fuct, these I know. When looking at it with only air rather than pixels as one's main barrier, the colors are much quieter. It was a fun exercise with charcoal and pastels on left over drywall from the bunkhouse. I think I'm going to be playing with clouds and skys quite a bit with these. They play well together and seem to like one another. What I'm truly tickled with is making my first frame with barn wood. We've got tons of this stuff down here and so far I've used it for this frame, shelves in my house and I built kitchen friggin cabinets with it. It's killer. Anyways, here's the early charcoal drawing with a light splash of watered down acrylic paint and the resulting waste of perfectly good left over drywall. Enjoy...




Oh, and here's a sunset from a few nights ago. Enjoy...

Tim, this is a sweet painting and the fact that you painted it in drywall makes it that much cooler.

Nice work Timmah, m'boy! I really like how the clouds turned out. The huge empty space plays well with the figure of the dude. It gives a sort of lonely, liberated, Kerouac feel. The barn fram works very well, too! I've always enjoyed frames with character. They work especially well in sterile environments. LOL
