A piece I did several years back needed a little make-over. In a previous post, you can see the original work with a wood stained frame. What do you think? I think with this new darker look that it really brings out the art so much better!

Roger Daltrey on canvas during his performance at Woodstock in 1969. The Who performed their album Tommy, which released only that year.
REO Speedwagon's 5th studio album This Time We Mean It was released in 1975 . Keeping with my ablum work, this was done on wood with aspects routered to elevate aspects of the album work, using acrylic paint.

Back in December I annouced I was working on a large canvas piece. This is a piece I have been working on since August and can finally say it is complete! From the picture on the left, sketched and acrylic paints slowly bringing it to life.
What’s coming up!
For several months now, I have been hard at work in my living room. If you've checked out my story, you'd have seen me bent over the canvas; paints and brushes around on my coffee table in my Zeppelin shirt. That picture was taken in August, in the beginning. Much progress has since been made since that evening... Continue Reading →
