Four Seasons

Posting these at the special request of Yoav,

These are some quick little watercolors I did for an assignment; I had to "illustrate the four seasons in a place I call home" based on what I learned in my Chinese Art class. In Chinese art they use a lot of symbols (particular flowers, for instance) to indicate the seasons. So, rather than paint the weather, I decided to depict the seasons in the place I call home (Louisiana) using some 'symbols' I myself came up with.

So here you are, spring, summer, fall, and winter. Enjoy!

spring: flowers (crate myrtle, azaleas, irises), crawfish season

summer: blackberries, honeysuckle, shrimp, (and egrets and cypress because why not),

fall: migratory birds (Canadian geese!), acorns, alligator season

winter: cardinals, bare/brown trees, Mardi Gras


Guess who just scanned a sketchbook.... I did!

And I'm in the process of going through and cleaning up certain drawings. So please enjoy this gypsy girl... She's several months old but still rather nice I think.

More to come soon.

Circus Freaks and Progress work

Hey all,
Here's my most recent painting from school...

And I thought you might be interested in a process breakdown thing, as well!

I'm updating my "Valueables" post to have one of these breakdowns, too. Go see

Yup, this is definitely one of the most bizarre things I've ever painted!

This was done for my "Western Music and Painting" class. The assignment was to create a design/image based on Schoenberg's Variations for Orchestra, Op. 31. See, Schoenberg invented this way of arranging music called the Serial system, where you basically pick a sequence of 12 non-repeating notes and then transmute them in various ways to create a composition.... which is rather interesting in theory, but the result (to my uncultured tastes, anyway) kind of sounds like rubbing your eardrums with a cheese grater.

Still, it was a good opportunity to try something different.

There was actually legitimate conceptual thought put into this piece, but I won't bore you with the details. Have a look and a listen (if you dare) and see what you can find. :)
