Mash-up of a Master

I really love van Gogh. I did a couple of mashups of his work for an oil painting class.

Disney Cast Offs

I liked the idea of this painting, but lost interest. I will probably start over.



The last painting is oil paint, but with a knife instead of a brush. I really enjoyed the process despite not liking the results. 



That Horse Has Wacked Out Poo Brains, Part 2

More horse drawings and paintings. I find horses to be fascinating, but daunting as subject matter. The blue horse painting was done a Pinot's Pallet on our 15th anniversary. My wife also made a matching painting. There was no good classes that week, so I came up the the idea of incorporating a heart shape, a copy of a master and a horse. My wife had no idea what she was painting at the time.

Rough sketch for painting below.

The above painting as it was being worked.
I believe this is my wife's copy.

That Horse Has Wacked Out Poo Brains, Part 1

I like drawing horses. I have collection of Equine themed artwork in a variety of media.

Horse Skull, chalk and charcoal
The waterhorse was for my wife, Kitty, before I gave her the nickname "Kitty". In the front leg of the first image, you can see where I was trying to work in a "J" and an "E". I was flummoxed as to how I would get an "N" in there, so I abandoned that plan.

The tattoo artist was very good and there were only small changes.

Not Working Out

The first is my most recent, a landscape of downtown Buffalo.


Prior to the landscape, I attempted a sky-seascape with a castle in purples. I didn't care for it and painted over it.





Stary Night - Copy of a Master

Several years ago, I tried to copy Starry Night. It was fun, but the end results were lacking.
