Taking a break from portraits to work on one of my favorite places in the world, Druid's Temple in Yorkshire, England. We'd all end up there late at night in a caravan of cars, and spend the whole night around a bonfire. Good times with guitars, light saber battles, and general pagan mischief!
11/100: Oil painting of the brilliant actor / activist / stone cold fox Rosario Dawson
Holiday commissions done + @FloatingDoctors year-end board meeting wrapped up so now I'm getting a chance to work on some personal paintings again. I really thought I'd finish 100 portraits by the end of this year. Ah haha, how young and naive I was in August. Anyway, thank you for all the fun comments and support this year, and I can't wait to see what we all create in this next swing around the sun. Here's hoping your new year is full of love and tacos, cheers!
Sketching in Northern California, where the surviving trees are a rainbow of fall colors and the apocalyptic air was finally washed away by rain. Here's hoping the land and communities can start healing.
9/100: Dancers performing traditional Korean Buchaechum at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival earlier this year.
Wow, is it just me or did September last 5 minutes?! I'm finally finding time to paint again, human 8/100 is Jessica, a gorgeous writer from Queens who just moved to LA.
I have so much to do before I fly to London I won't sleep til Saturday! Hope the bags under my eyes qualify as carry ons, har har. Also, thank you to everyone participating in my #100humans project, I can't wait to paint you all! PS if you're tired of not having back problems and sick of getting deposits back on your apartments, you should definitely paint like this.
The 6th portrait for my #100humans project is my dear friend / walking encyclopedia Robert. Some of the biggest challenges for me are painting small, painting people I love, and capturing the rich faces of elderly people with their lives mapped out in their features, so this one was especially fun/scary
Painted a brand new earthling whom I love with all my heart-- the one and only Aya, she of the 1,000 Faces, International Baby of Mystery
Wanted a summery, natural, sunkissed look, so I dumped a vat of bleach on my head and documented the results in a shuttered room full of turpentine fumes, am I doing it right?
