I have been looking at some master painters and decided to try copying some of my favorites digitally. This is Thayer's 'Angel', for time sakes I could only do a face study.

I also threw on my latest 'speedscape' of the day. 1/2 hour again. Hope you enjoy

Speed Paintings

A few of the guys I work with have committed to doing a daily speed painting, 30 minutes, in painter. So far they have been landscapes. It's a great challenge and I feel like I am learning a lot from it! Check'em out... let me know what you think. I have posted the latest two, more to come later.

Santa Welding!

No he's not vandalizing that population sign. My sister in law works at a company that makes all of the road signs and barriers for all of Utah, they needed a Christmas card this year that was somewhat relevant to not only Christmas, but to their line of work. So here it is, YAY.

Old house - Green hills

I have been wanting to do something more 'landscape-ish' since I did that little backyard sketch below. This is definitely more of a landscape, but there just happens to be a house in it too. I think its somewhere in europe or more likely somewhere I just made up.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone!

No Broccoli

This is an older picture of a cute dinosaur who hates broccoli. I would like to touch him up some time. I am using the smaller picture as my avatar.

5:00 am

I got up at 5:00 am today. and then I painted this. Yes it was somewhat inspired by Ryan Wood's Latest queen posted at, but hopefully it has some of my personality come with it... I am really trying to learn about skin and color.

Space Jester?

I am not really sure what this guy is supposed to be, my wife doesn't like him one bit. This was an exploration of light for me, with a pinch of creepiness.

I painted it pretty big, so heres a detail view also.

this started as a sketch in painter, and quickly turned into something pretty strange.

he's back...

So heres the deal

I got a job at Avalanche Software and everyone has a blog... and I wasn't cool cuz I didn't have a blog. So, I go to sign up and what do I find? Oh yeah! I already made one - two years ago! I totally forgot... But how exciting to find out all over again!

so here are some things I drew

this is an old factory or some greenish-blueish thing.

Magic man
this is a little monster I drew, I think
I will color him, then I'll put him back up here again.

I did this tree for Jeff B. to see if I could get a job.

same with this ice cliff.
