Digital Color Sketch w Ink Outline.
The wine barrel tops are coming along nicely. You can see the sample top w lettering in the photo above. The layers are getting cut and ready to paint, look for some progress shots very soon, and the crystallization on some of these gives a really interesting play between painted texture and light reflection.
In simultaneous timing with the opening of the DPAAF 2011, I am showing select works at The Urban Land Conservancy for the next month or so in conjunction with the Benedict Park Place grand opening being held on Nov 18th. Thanks so much to Valentina and everyone at ULC for the opportunity, and if you cannot attend the Plein air opening, stop through this location for a variety showcase of my works.
The 5th Annual Denver Plein Air Arts Fest opens tomorrow on the 7th Floor Gallery at the Denver Public Library. I am honored and excited to have three pieces in this years exhibition. I hope to see you all at the show. Seen above is a plein air piece from outside Estes Park completed in September.

The dates have been announced for the Children's Hospital Mural unveiling in which over 90 works of art were created. Excited to post final photos and shots of the other artworks that were created. Look for show info and final photos soon. Seen above are my submission concepts, and the first image is from the transfer before the kids went to town on it.
