I know I’ve been MIA lately, and I really haven’t painted much of anything at all in 2014, BUT I have been chipping away at this piece over the past month. And by chipping away, I mean I sketched it out one day and then finally decided to start painting it about 28 days later. Hopefully I’ll get hit by another bout of motivation and finish. I usually don’t have much patience for anything I can’t complete in one sitting—which is quite unfortunate. I’m sure this will look pretty nice once all the colors and brush strokes fall into place.

A colleague of mine from college contacted me a few days ago asking if I could paint up something unique of Jon Taffer for an article he wrote for an online magazine. I’m not very good at drawing men, but this was a fun challenge. I tried to give it a dingier look, since this guy hosts a bar rescue show, but my sister said this is still too whimsical. I guess that’s just my style.
