Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema,The Roses of Heliogabalus (1888) details.
Lately I’ve been trying to do a painting a day even though classes have started back up.
This past week was my last first day of school. It’s a terrifying and amazingly exciting thing. Luckily, I love all of my classes and I’m excited about all the work I’ll be able to make this semester.
I’m going to try to post more sketches, finals, and notes on this blog while figuring out where and exactly where I’m going to set up my portfolio online.
I have even redirected my domain to this tumblr. It’s getting close to the big game now.
** Also each of these paintings were made under an hour
which is why they are not pretty.
Woo I made art.

NIGHTFROST (2011) by Michael Whelan
Quite often at year’s end Michael paints an image for use on the Whelan family holiday cards, and that was the case with NIGHTFROST in 2011.
The painting began as an experiment on prepared panel surface. Michael liked the speckling effect on the dark background and it turned into a field of stars. He followed where his imagination led and ended up with a very inspired piece.
Amy Sol will be having a solo show, “Incantation,” open this Saturday, September 14th at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, California. Sol’s pastel palette slyly mirrors her magical themes making for work that shines in a soft, warm glow that is hard not to love. See more of Amy’s new work below:
This interests me not because of the paintings but of the subject matter. I seem to be leaning more towards symbolism even when I love science fiction.
Hi! Welcome to my Art Tumblr. I’ll be trying out some new things until I fit it into a routine.
I wanted to show off what was actually in my profile picture.
Eventually I will change it to be something a bit more readable.
If you guys are the curious ducks I hope you are, you should check out my professional art blog.
