close-up with mami

This is all I am posting up this week. It's a close-up of Mami Wata, and my progress on this painting. She is practically done, just have to finish the details such as the bracelet, the little ship, the bikini, etc.


in the studio

One of the paintings I've been working is for the Transplanted Project. So here are some studio shots of the progress.

 After work tea. I highly recommend the TAZO Lemon Maté. It's delicious!



Outside, or the great outdoors, definitely play a role in my inspiration for art making. From the colors to the horizons, from the serenity to the adventure, etc etc. Camping, hiking, swimming, surfing, sunbathing.

The second installation of the Contrast Art Show at 320 Studios went great, I had a special guest visiting so that made it even greater!
Here are just a few of the photos:
