Hunters and Prey

Starting off the week with more new work here on the blog! This time around it is work that I did for myself. It has been far too long since I last finished a painting for myself and I was starting to feel it. Several friends have been making comments to that effect for a while now. Without further yammering on my end, here are some new personal monsters...

I find spending time working on my own work really has a way of clearing the mind and getting me back in gear to get work done for others. It had really been too long since last I had a chance to do so. Finding time to draw is all well and good, but finishing a full painting really can clear the mental clutter away. A lot of the motivation for this piece (and several others I want to do) comes from the beautiful and lush areas I do a lot of my mountain biking through. There are these amazing limestone stream beds and beautiful root networks that just scream to have monsters added to them. Some of the concepts I had come up with for possible IMC pieces where to include these areas I bike through. I look forward to working on my next piece set in these wooded areas and discovering what monsters live in them.

That is all for another exciting day on the blog, see you back here on Wednesday for some big news. Until then...
