Quick Paintings at the National Academy

Here are four recent paintings, acrylic on canvas board, 11 x 14 inches. All were abstract exercises based on the human head, basically a continuation of the glitch, expressionist, pixelated themes that I've been experimenting with over the past two years.

I was a bit surprised that the last piece got over 2,000 views on my website (the average being less than 100). That painting of Andrea was featured on Explore (the best of Flickr) and Tin Foil Sandwich (my favorite art blog on Tumblr). I guess I should push the crazy colors and fragmentation even more? There certainly seems to be an audience for that. It's always fascinating, and humbling, to get anonymous online feedback well beyond the concerns of art school.

At any rate, thanks for looking. I'm excited about picking up my brush again this Saturday, with new models.


  1. I like the first one a lot!

  2. Thanks Tony. I was trying to do the pixelated thing with minimal strokes and a dark blue palette. Glad you like it and thanks for commenting.
