Piece for Autumn Society Show

I just finished this painting for the upcoming Autumn Society group show that is themed Dia de los Muertos. I don't get to paint people alot so I decided to do a portrait of the Aztec Goddess of the Dead. The flowers around her are Marigolds which are commonly used during the festivities of the holiday.

Travel Piece

I travel to NJ alot during the summer. Here's color studies for a painting I am working on. I'm going with the first one, which was really the 2nd study. After this painting I think I'll be doing a painting featuring England, maybe one with Philly, we'll see what happens.

painting and music

One of the most important things that helps me have fun while i'm painting, other than watching movies and crappy vh1 shows, is listening to music. My fav. albums/artists in the past few weeks have been:

woods- songs of shame
passion pit- chunk of change (ep)
grizzly bear- veckatimest
100 masterpieces classical music (mozart, chopin, vivaldi, handel, etc.)
white denim- fits

older favs:
vivian girls- self titled
animal collective- merriweather post pavilion
