Seasonal Sighs


Another one of my paintings. I just finished this last night. I actually had time to sit down and paint a reflection of my inside. I love doing these... out of EVERYTHING I post on my blog...and I mean EVERYTHING, I would say this is mo
st me (in terms of personal style)

My personal work...uninspired by anyone but the true, raw emotions I feel. not trying to make anything pretty, or shaded, the right colours, or style...just pure expression. I'll post a few of my older ones below. (I've posted them previously on this blog).

The weather always gets to me, to be honest. I need sun to function. Being deprived of it makes me a little kuku..and well, my insides float with emotion and expression that just needs to released and painted. Plus, I haven't done one of these in SUCH a long time, so a lot of other emotions have been bottled inside as well.

I call it 'Sigh'. Ah, gotta love the winter blues! ;)

P.S, I'm working on a Black & White collection... so another one is shortly to follow. Im doin them black and white for 2 reasons, 1) I never painted with black and white alone, and 2) to match my new place which is all black and white! Tryin to do the whole...classy grown up thing. ;)

The others:



Happy Holidays!

Yes! I agree with Francisco!! He knows what he is talking about. I know it's true, because I agree hehe.

I would love to have one! But since you're going to be all fancy and famous...maybe a bit out of my budget haha ;D! Can't wait to see the next paintings!

I hate to delete the previous comment...I spelled Francisco name wrong -_-'

these are fantastic, man! It's always great to see what illustrators do for their personal stuff, especially when it's so different from their illustration work. You are one multi-talented guy! Have a great holiday and keep up the good work in the coming year!
