Our Wintery Friend the Wendigo

A little break turned into a bit of an unexpected hiatus. Here’s something I did at the tail-end of 2012. I’m calling it the Wendigo. The lonely hiker continues on, unaware of his own state of deterioration and the force that haunts him.

I’m working on a new site design. I’m using wordpress.com right now, but since I have a host I’m going to install WordPress there and run this blog right and proper. This changeover will most likely occur either over the summer or in the latter part of 2013, as I would like to take my time and do it right.

Here’s a little something else I did last week titled “The Dark Lord Riseth, His Minions Follow.”

By the way, that painting I posted last time now has a title, “Frost Breath,” and is posted for sale on Etsy.

New Corpsepaint Face

Today I’ll be putting the finishing touches on this corpsepaint face painting. It’s going to be the sixth in the series. I plan to stop at seven. It’s time to move on to some other projects.

Modular 22 Opening, Saturday, October 13th

Posted in Art with tags , , , , on October 8, 2012 by scratchyb

Saturday opens a unique local show in Berwyn, at a gallery called 22Berwyn, combining architecture, design, and art in a structure of individually painted, interlocking wooden panels. The only restriction on this project was that the art all be in black and white, or shades of grey, and that nothing restricted the panels from fitting together. For that reason, I decided that with my contribution I’d forgo the woodburning and do a black and white acrylic painting.  I’m really excited to see the end results of all this, because there are over 300 great looking panels, and the whole structure once put together should look awesome. The show opens October 13th and runs through December 22nd.

New Art Piece

A few months ago I posted this piece and mentioned that I was looking for something else to add, and a way to incorporate color.

"Duets"

This is what I finally decided to do. I added the blue background, then some red-orange for the wings. I still felt like I needed something in the center, so I tried a little pinstriping. Overall, I’m satisfied with this piece. I titled it “Duet”.

Constructor Craft Fair July 9th

Posted in Art, woodburning with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 21, 2011 by scratchyb

This post is waaaay late, but I have good excuses, what with a storm that blew out our power for36 hours, stomach flu, family matters, and an impromptu trip to Holland.  Holland, Michigan, that is.

So the Constructor Craft Fair happened at Fitzgerald’s in Berwyn on Saturday July 9th, and it was just as much fun as last year.

I debuted a few new pieces there. These are a few of the new items. They’ll be appearing in my Etsy shop soon.

My attempts at abstract

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 18, 2011 by scratchyb

I don’t know if you can call these properly abstract. I’ve been experimenting a little bit beyond the figurative, that’s weird for me. These are woodburn paintings. I burned in the design and then painted around it with watercolor and acrylic.

I’ve not been blogging lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on anything. I’ve got this Egypt themed box and a few other things up my sleeve that I’ll be posting about soon.

This stuff’s going to be posted to my Etsy store soon.
