Over the past two years, I’ve been documenting an ongoing gallery project made up of accidental creations and warm up paintings executed with leftover paints. These exercises not only offer fans a peek into the studio, they also help me build momentum creatively.
As I did last year, I’ll be publishing these little surprises as they pop-up, but hopefully in regular installments. I realize I’m starting late this year—the first is dropping just before the end of August—but I figured now is as good a time as any and I’m finally ready to get back at it.
Glad to have you all back for another year!
Leftovers are little spur-of-the-moment doodles or sketches created from paint left over from a work in progress. Most of these quickies end up in the trash, but some are kind of cool on their own and others have lead to full scale paintings.
Palette Gremlins are small creations found in random shapes, usually paint on a palette or the mat board I use to protect my drawing table. Often what I see is an alien or a face, but PASSAGE: THE RED STEP was suggested by shapes in the over-spray left from a complex airbrushing session.
