I have been working on seven portraits for the past three months. I wanted to post a few to show how they turned out. I was exploring some ideas about identity and fear. The paintings are small, only 10x10 inch.

So for my big painting I did a tattoo design to put onto my model. I wanted to make the fem fetal seem even more menacing. Giving her a tattoo instantly made her seem hard and intense; choosing the Medusa was so that you would feel uncomfortable, you shouldn't be looking at her at all because you would die. I intended it to be a chest piece, so it also has more to the design that spread out on both sides. You will see when you look at my painting.

So I got a new canvas and started working on a new painting last week. Unfortunately I forgot my camera at home today. This thing is 4ftx5ft which is like huge for me! I am having a fun time with it but its a little overwhelming too. The project has some historical references to a few myths. I don't want to give anything away yet but its a cool concept if you ask me. So wish me luck and who knows by next week I might have a painting close to done.

This is a painting I have been working on for ever. It needs more work but not sure what yet...its been sitting in the studio untouched for a few months now.

I have been doing several paintings of meat and flesh. I have more work to do on these but I like some of the color I am getting in them.
