The Green

I recently created a new digital piece, called "The Green". This started out as a painting. Truth be told, it was an underpainting. I was working on a painting, and had only done two layers of it. So I scanned it in to see what I could make of it. I opened it up in Photoshop, and made magic! :) I have posted both the painting, and the altered version.

I call this painting "The Green" because it reminds me healing and calm energies. I really wanted to do something in green, since I often play with colours like purple, blue, red, etc...

Of course, the painting is available on t-shirts and such at, and I will likely have some prints of it available at my deviantArt page (Fair warning, my dA page is not always safe for work!)

It felt good to created this piece. I've been feeling a little frustrated creatively lately. One model I had been working with is moving. I had hoped to get another shoot in with him, but it didn't happen. Another new model I want to work with lives just far away enough that it's a big deal to go (making sure I have gas money, etc...) I do have a few photography ideas in mind that do not require having a model, so I will likely be going and doing those soon... one is planned this weekend. In the meantime, I have several small paintings in the works, and have done the pencil work on some sketch cards. Now it's time to get back to being creative and seeing what the day brings...

Landscape In Purple & Orange 3258

Today is just one of those days. Last night we had a scare with Mom. Her blood pressure was up very high (200/90, which ain't good). I had suggested that she go to the emergency room about 9:30pm, and at 12:30am, Dad ended up driving her. There is a family history of stroke, so better to play it safe. They got back home at 5:45am. Turned out that her high blood pressure was caused by a headache. That's a relief. I'm glad they went, and found out that it wasn't anything more serious.

Anyway, I didn't sleep. So I'm just chilling out today, and decided to play a little with some photographs. I took this photo at the Julington-Durbin Preserve. I played around with some filters, and turned out something that I thought was pleasing.

I've made this available on a t-shirt, and plan to add other products. Right now, it's only on Print All Over Me - 

Now, I'm gonna continue with my day of taking it easy...

Abstract 112015

So, this piece started out as an in-progress painting. I scanned it in, and started to play around with it and voila! My first abstract for 2015! Happy New Year!

This piece is available as a t-shirt at If you haven't ordered from them, their shirts turn out great. The shirts are comfortable and look wonderful! Below is a pic of me in one of my shirts from Print All Over Me!

I hope that everyone has a great 2015! Celebrate the New Year by doing something fun!
