I almost always plan out my artwork in photoshop before getting near a paintbrush. I find that it helps me work through a composition and color scheme more quickly and helps eliminate the chances of more time-consuming revisions later on.  Sometimes I like the photoshop collage enough to decide its a finished artwork. I will probably still try this one out as a painting to see what looks best.

I did this oil painting as a commission for a friend. I made a photoshop collage (below) incorporating one of his travel photographs of brightly-colored houses on cliffs in Italy. I created a border using crossword puzzles and sudoku. He asked me to remove the bones from the original painting. I am working on a new sketch of the original plan because I want to have another try at a more detailed border and experiment with including the bones this time.

Here is a detail of the painting –

Another centralized swarm painting. This started out as an abstract description of a night I had in Thailand. Taking geology class this semester has also been changing the way I understand the landscapes I interact with and has helped me to see everything as a component of some immense amazing system.

I found it hard to reach a conclusion with this painting. It started out as something that could be taken more literally as a details from an environment- waves and  moon, so I added yellow around the circle to flatten the image and make it harder to read.
