I made this painting to test out some new materials and try some new techniques to use in some upcoming paintings. After doing mostly solid commissioned work for the past 2 1/2 years, I’m ready to begin building a body of work that’s my own subject matter. Commissions essentially taught me how to paint and sharpen my skills, I pretty much said yes to every commission so I learned a lot mostly by painting so much. Things really clicked for me in the studio recently and so now I’m finally ready to take the leap and focus on my creativity.
I’m not going to post many more commissions for awhile. Taking some time for my own work. The Hamburger Dog Experiment was given to a client as a gift.
