note: Just found out that i'll be in a four man show at my gallery in Key West, The Gallery on Greene, in late February. That'll be fun painting for that this winter, instead of shivering my pitooty off in NC!
Liked the color and warm light in this portrait of a corner in a bedroom. Playing with getting the accuracy i want (in drawing and color) while keeping it loose and fun to look at.
True story! i was out kiteboarding with friends last saturday and was out in the ocean about two pier lengths when i saw a fin about forty yards from me. i wanted to check it out and got right up on him going, i guess 15 mph and decided to get real close when i saw the fin wasnt gi-normous. went right over top of a five foot sand shark. i was so close i could have touched his fin when i went over him while he was cruising along on the surface. that was toooo cooool! never been that close to one (knowingly). Sand sharks are pretty scared of people and only bite when they mistake you for something else. in fact there's been two attacks on swimmers on the coast so far. one in emerald isle and one here on topsail island. bet this was the first time THAT shark was ever afraid of a human. i like the fact i turned the tables on him!
