"Cooking with Spices" | Approved Sketch 8x10" Colored Pencil | Final Painting 40x52"
I have moved my studio and I am thrilled with my new space. No longer will I be backing into walls or bumping my paintings against studio cabinets. Just in time with my new studio move is a new private commission for a large scale oil painting. The sketches above were the final favorites with the client picking #3 titled, "Cooking with Spices". The final  painting will be installed in the dinning area of a So Cal collector. I haven't started the piece yet but, hey! I have a nice space to paint it out in.
My new studio. Needs some smoothing out.

Creating my piece for the "Memory" show I pulled some extra time to make some new Monotypes to add to my "Couples" series. I can't believe that I hadn't done a new "Couples" piece since 2011. All of these pieces will be placed into different galleries.
