I was a poor poor art student when I decided to start a blog documenting the process of my paintings, photography, drawings and journaling. Now a recent art grad, not much has changed other than the label and maybe a change of scenery.

back jack

after a long hiatus from the studio (two weeks, that's long in studio terms), and after my show i am back in action. i'm going to finish my last piece, it's going to be roasted ducks that we witnessed at the chinese market on lake street. if you haven't tried roast duck or pork, might i suggest you do. i've gotten mixed reactions from this image (ew, the heads are still on) but you know one bite and you'll forget that thing was ever quacking by a pond.

also, i am going to to attempt (yes tentatively speaking there's only about 3 weeks until i walk on that stage in a cap and gown) to paint little studies, either copying or using the technique of a new artist tamara introduced me to by the name of Nathan Ford. He's an English oil painter and i am in love. his colors, his marks, his confidence in leaving the painting finished when enough is stated. i want to meet him, hell i want to be him. here are some pictures and here is his link: http://www.nathanford.co.uk/he will also be in this show coming up http://www.victorfelixgallery.com/artist/Nathan-Ford.htm
