Terrible Weakness

A little bit later than I had expected, but here is the full composition which followed the head study from a couple weeks back. With this piece I'm continuing to push the new direction and approach and it is really feeling good. I can't think of any other recent painting which was as exciting and enjoyable as this was to work on. I'm also tremendously proud to say that this piece will be on display at the Allentown Art Museum for the At The Edge: Art of the Fantastic show from June 3rd through September 9th where it will be hanging in some very distinguished company.

Head Study

Felt like sharing a quick study I did in preparing for a new painting on the way. Experimenting with combining some of the techniques from Coral Demon with the more painterly approach. The full scale piece should be up later this week...
