Watch a painting from start to finish!

Even though my painting “Paused (Crow) has been finished for a few weeks now, while painting this particular piece I captured the entire process on video. It has taken me up to this point to finish editing and fine tuning the videos but at last they are finished. They can all be seen on my YouTube channel as individual videos or watch the playlist titled Work in Progress: “Paused (Crow)” Start to Finish. There are five videos, the first two cover the under drawing process, the third, video capture the toning of the canvas and the last two show me adding the color to the painting. Each video is under 10 minutes long but compress many hours of work into each short video.


Below is the painting in its frame…

"Paused (Crow)"
Oil, 5 x 9


“Paused (Crow) is headed off to the Masterworks in miniature exhibit at Gallery One in Mentor, Ohio. For more information about this exhibit that I am extremely honored to be part of again please visit my news page on my website.

Enjoy the videos!!!

My friend and fellow artist Paul Rhymer’s solo exhibit at the Ward Museum in Salisbury, MD opened last Friday night. The LaMay Gallery in the Ward Museum showcases a selection of bronzes by Paul. Paul is a multiple Ward World Champion sculpture winner, and his pieces have been featured in many exhibitions, including the Society of Animal Artists’ Art and the Animal and the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum’s Birds in Art. His works appears in the Denver Zoo, the National Museum of Natural History, and the Hiram Blauvelt Museum of Wildlife Art. The exhibit will be open until March 28, 2010.
