Updates 4/18/13

So it has been a little while since I put anything new here, so here it goes.

The 9th Annual Images Gallery Juried Show is starting tomorrow, April 19th, with an opening reception at 6:00.  I have already received notice that I've been awarded something, but they won't tell me what.  So I'll have to wait until they announce it tomorrow at the reception.  I hope some friends can make it!  But if not tomorrow, then sometime before it comes down on May 11.

Here is a new painting that I have finished recently.  This is a conceptual piece referencing a passage of Scripture, Matthew 27: 51-53.  I'm doing some research and studying at the moment for future paintings.  I've been drawing, reading, watching videos, and looking at other works by some contemporary masters to get some insights.  New work is on the way.  In the meantime, here is a change of pace from my portraits:

The Veil Was Torn

20x16 inches
In the works right now are some portrait and figure studies in oil.  Tonight I will be at my bi-weekly figure drawing session at the gallery, which is always a great exercise for me. 

I am still working on finalizing my series of Alla Primas.  It's still going to take a while before they're all ready for showing, but I'm still really hoping it will happen by this summer, or fall at the latest.

That's all for now, stay tuned for more - particularly news and pictures from the Images Exhibition.
