Paint Applications

So, if you follow my facebook page, you may have guessed that I have been working on a diptych. I am nearing completion, and so here is a small sneak-preview section of it:

Meanwhile, let's talk more about paint. Acrylic paint.

I have two palette boxes as my main holder for paints (one for oil and one for acrylic), but sometimes I grab whatever is in reach. When using a plastic lid for a palette, I found out something amusing...

This works for acrylic paints. It is especially cool when clear acrylic medium is used. After the paint completely dries, I can peel it off and stick it to walls, windows, and various surfaces.

Oh no! Green goop on my laptop!!!

Ha ha! Alright, information about shows on the way, and I hope everyone has a great fourth of July weekend!


  1. That's a crazy expression!! Did u use urself as ref?

  2. Dude this piece is looking bomb! I can't wait to see it complete.


    Acrylic paints are fun!, I still remember I fell in love with your oil paint residue worm!

    I'm looking forward to see the diptych!

  4. Thanks!
    Gue- nah, not that face... there is another face that I used myself as ref, but I altered my nose a bit. Ha ha it seems some of the faces I paint end up looking like me somewhat...

    It will be a while before this diptych will be complete. The gallery wants me to continue the painting outside onto the walls so even though it is done now, I still have to do more painting.
