Okay, last night was a long one as I work some more on the commission's I need to complete and ship out at the end of next month.

Spent 2.5 hours straight last night working on part of the first painting. I am using oil paints and if you're not familiar with oil paint, they take FOREVER to dry...which -depending upon who you are- can be a good thing. To me it is a good thing! :)

I was a bit discouraged at first as I just wanted to go in there and finish the painting bada bing, bada boom... I forgot that it takes time to achieve a certain level of expectations and patience is a virtue... especially while working with oil paints.

As last night shows, taking the time and putting in the effort really pays off and I am truly happy with the way things are going.

While I wait for this painting to dry I am working on several other projects and creating more t-shirts!!!

If you need some new threads for the summer check out the shirts on the previous post or you can visit my Facebook page as I haven't uploaded them to the web site yet.

You can send me a message as well @

Good luck with your oil's pretty fun if one has the patience. Especially after working with acrylics for years and years.
I'm working on a commission in oils. Turns out, I've developed an allergy to something in the it will be my last work in oils..and I really should be working on finishing that instead of reading I suppose I'd better get busy:)

I am loving your t-shirts.

Oh really? That's too bad, I love working in oils. AHH.. I don't know what I would do!.. I suppose I would just draw and adapt to acrylics but still.... Good luck finishing up!! :)

Thanks for the comments, I'm hoping to have some new shirts done by the end of the month... Do you have any big art shows coming up this summer?
