Squirrel checks out SteamPunk Squirrel – complete

By | August 23rd, 2011|Art News, Paintings, Squirrel Series|

SteamPunk Squirrel is complete, but because of the various stages of drying times on the jacket and hat, etc. it's a bit difficult to photograph. Will take better shot later on.

SteamPunk Squirrel in progress.

By | August 5th, 2011|Work in Progress: The Lab|

Working on SteamPunk Squirrel, and started GeishaGirl Squirrel (will post soon). Then, it's onto a larger painting with a scene/setting using live models.
