I’ve been painting a lot this year.
Here’s a friend’s baby. She was born December 31st, 2012. She has my grandmother’s name.
My scanner does not do this piece justice.

This is Terra and Esper in an original piece inspired by Squaresoft’s Final Fantasy VI. It was a custom painting of my favorite Final Fantasy female, Terra. If you’re interested in commissioning a painting of one of your favorite characters, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our glorious models were Victoria Belmont, Missy Heather, Rachel Bufano, Sammi Macabre Macabe, Carolyn Anne, Kristin Brad Wilson, and Tiffany Loretta. There was a special performance by Linda Zadzielski – Van Wagner.

August is a bittersweet month for me. My love of summer is comparable only to the affection the average 7 year old has for Christmas. As I try to cling to the last days of plein air painting and sun kissed skin, it seems the rest of the world has moved on to autumn. My Pinterest feed is filling with fall fashion tips while Twitter babbles about back to school. Facebook friends long for a release from “this heat.” August is the last full month of summer, and I tend to spend it longing for June.
The following painting is of The Pink Mermaid, an antique shop on Asbury Avenue in Ocean City. Unfortunately, I know it is one of the last plein air works I’ll have time to create before the season changes.
Wet and Wild. Watercolor and ink on paper. 5″ x 7″.
