Packed and Loaded Preview

The group show "Packed and Loaded" opens next week on Tuesday the 19th. I'm busy touching up the paintings and cutting mattes. Opening night is from 7-10pm and the show will include work by eight artists all together. This is my first time showing at Gallery 1988, so I'm excited. I hope to see you there.

Two Color Comps

The "Packed and Loaded" show is coming up fast, I have three more paintings to get done. Here are the color comps for two of them.

I painted the tree illustration in Photoshop first then I made this small gouache version to make sure that I could mix the colors correctly, I've been having trouble matching colors from my monitor to the final piece so I've been adding this step in between. Also, in the final, there'll be a little guy sitting up in the tree playing a guitar.
