I Scream for Ice Cream-9x12- $45

Been working on a big commission painting and i'll post some step-by-step shots and text on the WIP (work in progress) so you can see how i go about it.

I will sell several paintings during my Holiday Sale to clear out the studio of sketches and studies that i do in preparation for larger paintings. the smaller pc's give me a good gauge of whether i want to pursue the idea larger and/or what i want to change if i do.

these will make excellent gifts at a good bargain for your art loving friends and family. all without breaking the bank. you may even see something you cant live without too.

this particular piece is acrylic and harkens back to the day when i painted in acrylic before switching to oils.

Hey mike, just watched three of your demo's. Really good man. Seems like a nice setup.

thanks, i had a lot of fun being crazy with the color and still making it look like it did. pic of it came out i thought, thanks to you.

Preesh man. is the glass painting Free Art Lesson up there yet? the painting is on my blog a few posts back. its sold... called appropriately "glass jar". its my tribute to aaron lifferth. the setup was cool too because i took this huge canvas colored drape and draped it over this huge wood stand,then set that little insignificant jar up there and it looked REGAL! wanted to paint that whole scene but the production guy was wanting to shoot a dvd i did painting a floral. five dvds will be out (soon i hope) in total.
everything i know about painting glass i learned from you my friend. thanks!
