POPEYE series(so far) in one tidy post

I just wanted to put my "Popeye" series to date up on one post. If you want the story behind the series, click HERE. But here's the eye candy. The ones in color are oil paintings and the black and white is graphite. I plan on doing more in the series.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think. PLEASE!!!! My arrogance and self esteem need the fuel!

even more thoughts on my art

I love seeing the reaction of my 'muses' at the work I've done of them.

more thoughts on my art

Drawing/painting/photography/printmaking to me is the opportunity to use what God gave me, and take advantage of skills I've learned.

My thoughts on my art

I share my abilities as an artist to show my appreciation for those who inspire me in art & life.

It's done! (I think)

I might have a couple touch ups to do and sign it, but here is the completed oil painting I've done of Popeye, Swee' Pea and Olive Oyl. I enjoy this one a great deal. Let me know what you think.

Drum roll....new painting...NOW!

I'm working on a series of artwork inspired by Popeye and the film of the same monicker from 1980. This is the 3rd piece I've done. The other two are here on the blog somewhere. Just type in "Popeye" to the search. This piece isn't done yet, but I'm excited at its progress. Let me know what you think.

Not live in New York...

The local paper, The Ogemaw Herald, wrote an article about my documentary. Here's a link to it online . The title of the article is a little off-putting, as I was not accepted into an art exhibit in New York. The gallery owner liked my work enough and said I could participate for a fee, which was beyond my price range (as in, not free) and the exhibit was only for a week.

What I'm doing

Alright, cats 'n' Kittens, this is what I've been doing. I'm working on what I'm hired to do, which is commission work. I'm trying to fit in what I need to do, which is figurative work. I've been painting and drawing what I WANT to do, which right now is my Popeye series and my Jack Nicholson series. I have to do the commission work, I need to do the figurative work and I want to do my series work. All the while being a father and husband.
We're still working on the documentary but with no galleries interested in my work and no art shows or events coming up, we're at a standstill. Plus the distance between me and the documentarian is almost 3 hours in the winter!
