High School Dayz

This is just part of a painting I never really got to finish.
It's hard to see some of the detail in the brush work.
It was done in water color, when I was like 17. I've gotten a little better at
water color since then, so I might revisit this painting some time.

Who Wants To Live Forever?

The back ground was spray painted on a small vinyl record.
The actual stencil was hand painted with acrylic paint.
Afterwards the whole thing was sprayed with a gloss finish.

Now What?

The other day I found this drawing while cleaning my room.
I'm pretty sure I've posted a picture of it before, so it's nothing new.
Anyways, I'd forgotten all about it, so I decided to make it a little more

I cut the drawing off of the notepad it was onI sprayed the drawing with a fixative spray.

I matted the drawing on white mat board.
I tried black mat board at first, but white
made the drawing pop a little more.

I had this plain black frame, that was a little too plain.
I decided to spray paint it a bit. At first I thought about
spraying it a different solid color, but then I just decided
to do some light sprays of yellow around the frame.

I think the spots effect worked pretty well.

After that I sprayed the frame with a gloss
finish, and put everything together.

The finish product came out pretty sweet I think.
I've never really thought about selling prints of any of my work,
but I think this might be the first one. I'll think about it.

Fly On The Wall

I need to get motivated and excited about painting again.
I'm starting small, and hopefully working my way up to
much larger paintings. This is a small water color painting
I did a few days ago.
