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.

You can keep track of the project in all the usual places on social media. You’ll find the same images on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram.

Thanks again for all of your support!


eftovers 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.

For more detail on how this project originated, head over the original Leftovers & Palette Gremlins gallery. And be sure to check out the 2017 gallery and 2018 gallery as well.
