I'm currently working on some new works for my next show, which will be happening in early August. The show is called Harmony Arts, and it will be in Ambelside Park in West Vancouver.
One subseries I am working on is a collection of parrots. After I made my 100 sushi paintings, I became very involved with colour combination/experimentations. I'm taking that approach and applying it to some larger pieces, and since the natural colours available with this subject are so bold, bright and fun to interpret, I figured it would be a great reason to create this subseries.
In addition my giraffe piece is really coming together. The image below is from two days ago at the studio, and it has since been reworked further (newer image coming asap). Yesterday I worked on it at Greek Day here in Vancouver, to an incredibly amazing and responsive audience. I was out on the street drawing on it for five hours and it is now 75% complete.

After a bit of a well-deserved hiatus (I was quite burned out after the 100 sushi paintings and exhibition) I have started some new work. I am taking what I learned about colour combinations on the sushi project and applying it to a series of parrot pieces. Some other new work is on the go too, so expect images of those very shortly. For this first parrot I'm liking where it's at so far. I'm going to texturize the beak to give it some good depth.
