A couple of paintings in the backburner...

Expanding on my ink technique, I have initiated two new works with a slight political overtone, "Looning out" and "Real cowboys" ...



A few more steps are required before I can call them "done"...

Burning geishas in my hometown...

Until March 26th, I have the opportunity to partake in a collective painting exhibition in my hometown...



Part of my burning geisha series is in display and, so far, I have received positive feedback on these new works. It's time however to change course while piggybacking on the techniques developed for this series...

Geisha series in the making!

A few more paintings, and I should be satisfied with this specific creative approach of late...


I'm looking at completing a few more smaller formats and will present a portion of that series at a group exhibition in my hometown. In the near future, I want to expand with this approach, adding more complexity and colors.

Another burning geisha in the making!

Leveraging the momentum I built up so far with geishas, I initiate another one in the larger Eastern township studio...


So far I have used a relatively subdued approach which has a broader appeal, but I feel like a volcano ready to erupt! I feel the urge to introduce wild things into these zen-like patterns. Somehow, I need to find a balance between painting for myself and painting for walls!
