I definitely took a venture in a different direction with my latest piece, the illusion, and not necessarily a road I plan to continue down but I wanted to experiment and I’ll probably do a lot more random paintings in the future that in the end I’m not madly stoked about. I’m always terrified of making bad art, but I’d like to just shake that insecurity off and just enjoy the freedom of making mistakes and learning as I go.
I like the illusion for it’s softness and lack of contrast. It’s only 14 x 11 inches in size, and a real challenge to get detailed on such a small scale. I had forgotten those frustrations, having been working on a more forgiving scale recently.

finally taking the time to update my portfolio with the work I’ve been doing this summer.

I got a bunch of lovely detail shots in high quality and not just cell phone snaps.. they’ll slowly start filtering their way onto here as well.
