While you are there, why not pick up a copy of the Dreaming Like Mad with Dion McGregor CD. The CD, which was recently mentioned in Wired, features the cover art of Kerry Zentner.

Pins Framed

20140708-163536-59736164.jpg

“Pins” is framed and ready for shipping to Clement Art in Troy, New York, for the “of Beauties and Beasts” show that opens later this month. Thanks to Anna and Brian at Rivertown Gallery in Byron, Ontario for doing such a great job as always. This piece was a challenge because the paper has a beautiful cream hue, which doesn’t really come through in the photo. Incidentally, the drawing behind the framed work is a rough for another project, which I’ll reveal in good time.

Tadpole, 2014, 8″ 8″, oil on board.

This piece is an oil miniature that I just finished on the weekend. It started life as a sketch in my Moleskine. I enjoyed working on it so much I think I’ll continue working in oils for a bit. I have some good ideas for more creatures like this. Summer is a nice time to paint because the natural light is so good. I hope you like this guy!

Richard.

points_web_detailPoints of View was drawn in 2003. Some of these older works were scanned using an inexpensive desktop scanner, which was all I had at the time. I’ve tried to clean them up in Photoshop, but results are limited by the quality of the source files. Points was done at a time when I was doing a lot of grotesques in silverpoint.

Keeping with this week’s theme of older works here is an ink/ watercolour from 2003. It’s called Buddy. I can still remember doing this painting. It’s hard to believe it was 11 years ago
