My New Clown Painting

This turned out so much better than I could have hoped for. I think the sky is magnificent and I tried to make the clown blend into the clouds as much as possible. Let me know what you think

Today I worked on some dark outsider works. They are always a hoot to do. I can be anyone I want in those and creativity has no bounds. Today I worked on the Black Heart Family and did another Herschel. I think Herschel will turn out to be very popular. He has such character. I am including some pics so you can see. Any comments are appreciated. You can check these guys out Here

Todays Creations

Tornados everywhere today, but I have been painting up a storm. Today I worked on some outsider work. I have two wonderful characters: Herschel and The Black Heart Family. I think they are so full of nastiness. I love the Black Heart family-they never seem to do anything right and are always fighting. Herschel just never seems to get anywhere. You can check them out on ebay.
Tomorrow I am going to work on another Clown painting which is what I like best.

What I have been working on

This is one of my lastest paintings for Land of Meihre, which is a series I am doing. I have this one listed on ebay right now. I love the colors of this one. This pure guy looks so sad, but if I had tree roots coming out of my sockets, I would be sad too..

Nasty and cold here today. It rained all day. All I want to do on days like this is sleep. The weather channel is predicting a bunch of tornados too. I wish it could stay 80 all year long. Maybe I should move to Hawaii, or Australia. I would love to visit either place. I am still trying to figure out my style and it is driving me crazy. I will keep everyone posted.

New Outsider Work

I have been working hard on a new series of outsider art. As a self taught artist, it is hard sometimes to get things just the way you want them. I think my work has grown and evolved a lot in the last few months. I hope that I continue to grow as an artist. I try not to get discouraged as quickly as I used to. I have been checking in to some galleries to see what is out there. Ebay has finally picked up some. I am hoping Christmas will be a good time.

Great Fall Painting

I have moved in another direction with my work and I am really pleased with it. I have worked really hard on the realism end of my painting and it is starting to pay off. I have listed some really good works on ebay in the last couple of weeks that I am really pleased with. I have joined a new group called art squared for small art that is a lot of fun. I hope to work on some more of those soon. I will keep you posted.

New Work

I have finally gotten some new work done that I am really pleased with. I have listed it on ebay-if you would like to see my new adventures you can click the ebay link. I have had a wonderful month. The best I have had all year. I have worked hard to keep the art different and interesting. Any comments are welcome. I have a couple of series that I am working on and need to get some paintings finished for those. I will keep everyone posted.

Fall Is Here

Well today is the first full day of fall and I am looking forward to it. I love halloween and that is just around the corner. I did two really cool paintings yesterday and listed them on ebay. I was in a very dark mood. Sometimes it comes over me like a fog, but it does creat some wonderful art. Ebay has been really slow lately so I have a lot of time to refresh and think clearer. I hope to get a couple more listed this weekend. Maybe things will pick up soon.
Tonight is when the monstor storm Rita is supposed to hit and looks like she is going to be a nightmare for those poor people on the coast again. I really should post to my blog more, it just seems like there is never enough time to do anything. I need to go and get some work done, there is that time thing again.

Almost Fall

Well it has been a while since I posted. I have been enjoying what is left of the summer. I have also been working on a idea for a series, I am calling it the Land of Meihre. It will have fantastic characters and give me a much needed creative workout. I have some many ideas, it is hard to find the time to put them all into a work. I will keep everyone posted. I have listed the first painting on ebay-this is the first chapter, hopefully with many more to come.

This weeks disaster

Well I have spent the last week with the rest of america watching the news. It has been so hard to do anything but watch over and over again and try to believe that it is really happening in our own country. I hope New Orleans the best of luck and would love to see that great city again. I was there in Oct. 2001, just after 9-11 and people were so concerned for those in New York. Now they need our prayers. I have painted a couple of paintings with New Orleans as a theme. It makes me feel closer to those that have lost so much.

Last Day of August

Well now that hurrican Katrina has destoyed the gulf coast, everybody will need as much help as they can get. I have spent the last few days glued to the tv looking at the destruction. We missed the large amount of rain they we would have. My prayers go out to those poor people who have nothing left. Hopefully everyone will pull together to help as they have in the past. I am off to get some painting done. More later.

Blah Blah Day

Today I have been completely useless and have accomplished nothing. I guess everyone has these days, I am usually running around like crazy trying to get stuff done. I just finished a painting that took a lot of thought and energy and I think I am just needing a break. I thought since I had some extra time I would surf through some of the other wonderful blogs on here and see what wonderful people I can find.

Finally Time to Rest

Well it has been a few days since I posted last. I have had many things to do and it seems I never have enough time. I have completed a few paintings that I would like to share with you since my last post. Any questions or comments are welcome. My goal is to become more organized and to be able to get more done in a shorter time. I know that everyone tries to do this at least once a year.

Back to Work

Well I have had a couple of days of rest and relaxation and now it is time to get back to work. It is hard to get started after some time off. I have a lot of ideas that I would like to get started on. I will try to post some of them here tomorrow.

Good work today

Today I have finished up two new paintings that I have been working on that I think worked out well. I struggle with putting on canvas what I want to say, but I suppose that is what all artists go through. I have several more ideas that keep waking me up in the middle of the night. Here are todays works.

Getting Started

The hardest part of any day is getting started. I spend at least two hours in the morning, checking emails, checking auctions and printing off necessary stuff before I can ever get started painting. Painting which should be the most important part for an artists seems to get shoved behind all the business stuff that we need to do. I am finally done with the necessary and now I can go paint.

My First Post

I thought since this was my first post I would tell you a little about myself. I am a self taught artist from Eastern Ky. I live in a tiny town with more cars than people, and I try to paint everyday. I paint mostly surreal and abstract art. They seem to be more interesting to me. My favorite artist is Dali. I have always been fascinated with surreal and abstract art and the way they get their message across. I will try to add more as the week goes on.
