Somethings Happening in my Head

Now that Christmastime is in full swing, I'm happily gathering inspired bits wherever I can find em. This time of year is most bestest for painting, although the distractions come at me from every angle ~ as I'm sure is the case with most people. Still, the magic is in the air and I intend to take full advantage of it where I can...

I've just finished my biggest painting for my next show {May 2014 at Corey Helford Gallery} and although it put up quite the fight in areas I didn't see coming, and it took me double the amount of time I intended, I'm pretty flippin stoked on it - beyond what I dreamed initially. It will set the tone for the entire show, including the 4 paintings I had started before it. I have a long road ahead of me in completing what paintings haven't even occured to me yet, I know each one will slap me across the face repeatedly - I'll cry and I'll stomp around the room like a 7 year old as goes the drill. But I'm hoping to wrestle each one down in the end and the outcome far more victorious than if they all lay down and make my life easy.
Here's hoping for some excellently worthy opponents to take me on like Lincoln Hawk in Over The Top.
