Miles, Contemplative

IMG_3440February was a month of portraits. This is a portrait of my eleven year old son. I love this age between young adult and child. There’s so much love, innocence and potential all wrapped up in a beautiful face. This is 24″x 30″ acrylic on canvas.

Here’s my latest painting. A 20″x 24″ Oil on canvas painting of my daughter exploring the sand dunes in Ocean Beach, San Diego. I completed this over the Summer of 2015 right after I discovered my grandmother has liver cancer. I tried to put all my emotions over the news into the sky, while thinking about the carefree qualities of youth and good health.

New Painting, Ivy Camping

"Ivy Camping" 8"x10" Oil on Canvas

“Ivy Camping” 8″x10″ Oil on Canvas

I finished a quick study of my daughter Ivy last night from a photograph I took while we were camping this winter.  I feel it captures her vivacious spirit and fun personality, not to mention the pure volume that comes with being a 2 year old.  This is a smaller painting, 8″ x 10″ oil on canvas.

Art Show at Cosmos Coffee Cafe

I’m happy to say I’ve been asked to return for another show at Cosmos Coffee Cafe in the La Mesa Village!  The artwork is currently on display and will be exhibited through November 2012.  There’s some new illustrations and a hanful of new paintings along with some older favorites.  The theme is “childhood wonder”.   Stop by and enjoy some art and some fine coffee.  Let me know what you think!
