under a bridge

well.  5 years of angry steve and a conservative majority.  i am going to go live under a bridge.

this is possibly the art for the when systems collide ep.  i think it looks pretty classy.  just a rough version, but needs to be decided soon.

ship song

i painted this years based on a picture i took in halifax.  i was on a cruise ship waiting to leave port.  it was pouring rain and we were about to head out into stormy waters.  the tail end of a hurricane was heading up the coast.  the ocean was choppy,  the boat was rocking and i avoided eating dinner just in case i would be seeing that dinner again later.

i like the blue.  i'll be back on a cruise ship in a bout a month, heading to bermuda.  we might encounter some rough waters, but there will be no hurricanes.  and hopefully no triangles.

ducks unlimited

i've painted a few ducks for friends over the years.  they are all basically the same but with different backgrounds and different sizes.  i found a nice frame for this one at a store in the states.  the old fashioned nature of it goes well with brown and blue and simple duck.  i just have to repair a little section in the top corner.

acrylic smiles

i have been painting with acrylic on acrylic recently.  or plexiglass or whatever you may call it.


it can make for some neat effects through the acrylic.  i usually paint on the back and try to get things good the first time.  sometimes have to wipe or scrape the paint off to redo sections.  or just scrape off a bit of it and paint over for some neat effects.  the backs don't look as good.

gold day

another painting that looks a lot better with its not quite finished frame.  a few touch ups on the frame and it should be ready to be assembled.
