Paint studies of scenes in Ireland
While I haven’t posted anything in a little while I can assure you all that I have not fallen off the face of the earth. If anything it’s quite the opposite. I’m currently enjoying the beautiful scenery and hospitality of Ireland.
Based on the photos above you can see that I’ve been doing a little work. I had planned on doing more painting but between all of the sites and traveling I’ve only been able to paint one a day. I’d like to use some of these studies in one of my upcoming shows but that’s still up in the air.
Must have traveling paint supplies
Whenever I’m not attending an art fair, painting or kissing the Blarney Stone, I’ve made it a point to at least do some sketching. The sketchbook in the photo is one that I bought at the Metropolitan Museum of Art way back in 2004. No, it doesn’t have magical powers or anything but it was from one of my first trips to New York and holds a bit of sentiment. I didn’t want to draw just anything in this book but something that would be more dear and memorable to me.
