Under drawing for my first painting of 2018 - five hours deep mixing Denver from my childhood with the real celebrities.
In the slim chance I actually get juried into the Cherry Creek Arts Featival I thought I would do a ton of small paintings. Here’s the first batch of 3 in x 3 in lucky rabbits feet. Still need to paint batches of burning matches, ocular prosthetics, and fireworks.
Been working on this painting forever. Oh wait I have. Still need to paint the rest of the tattoos and do a ton of glazes, then to finish it off with body hair. But first I might take time off for the holidays.

I’ve spent more time on researching historic photos, and pouring over microfilm, than I have and actually painting. Juxtaposing Denver from my childhood with contemporary or historic images is eating up a ton of time. Hopefully the 43 percent of Colorado natives will appreciate the time and effort I’m putting into my 2018 exhibition. Here’s a few preliminary sketches but stay tuned for more weirdness and lost places of Colorado history.
Gonna be painting fire all day but here’s the progress so far on this 36 in x 48 in piece I’ve been working on.
