Meep Meep

“Meep Meep”, acrylics on 8×8″ stretched canvas, 2019

Original available

If you live in New Mexico you must paint Roadrunners, so here’s my first. If you’re wonderin’ whether those balloons come from Acme, you’d be right. They’re filled with TNT, too. The first one is a decoy, the Coyote is in the yellow one. They’re driftin’ over from the missile range, but I think the guy flyin’ around in the restored WWII fighter plane might have trouble seein’ the yellow balloon in the sunglare…

Shells

Here’s a couple of shell studies started in VB and finished up in LC.

 

This shell was done in the Studio with the Beach added from imagination. “Beach Shell”, acrylics on 5×7″ stretched canvas.

 

 

 

 

I set the shell up in a box with single point lighting and treated it as a Still Life. “Studio Shell”, acrylics on 6×6″ stretched canvas.

Acrylics ’19/’20

Here are my acrylic paintings from 2019, from Las Cruces, NM. They are painted on various surfaces, including Canvas Boards, Hardboard Panels, and Stretched Canvas. I try to use a better quality of paints, mediums, varnishes, and surfaces to enhance longevity of the piece. All acrylic paintings have an isolation layer applied to protect the paint. Each one is varnished. The varnish may be removed with household ammonia and reapplied if it becomes damaged or yellows (usually after several decades). Because of the isolation layer, the paint will be safe from this process.
