LEFTOVERS & PALETTE GREMLINS 2019

hen I started posting to this gallery project—now going on its fourth year—I never imagined the staying power of these accidental creations and warm up paintings executed with leftover paints.

Fans seem to love the casual drop-ins to the studio that these paintings allow, and I can’t argue with a little exercise to keep my creativity flowing.

Expect to see more of the same in 2019—surprises big and small posted with (hopefully) some regularity.

LEFTOVERS & PALETTE GREMLINS 2018
