It Felt Like This...

Would have posted sooner but recovering from either a sinus infection or someone abandoning a sick cat behind my left eye socket. I kept waiting for something unpleasant to boil out of all the holes in my aching skull. The sketch above illustrates the sensation fairly accurately.

The office auction went well. Wake 2 (the mermaid) went to a respected colleague as did Kanutu/Mugato. Of my own pieces Mr Snips was the contested one and made a good showing at the front end of the live bidding. But then pieces by Bill Presing, Ronnie DelCarmen, Nick Sung and Teddy Newton threw the attendees into a bidding frenzy as expected. The auction brought in all that we think we need for creating our space so it's only a matter of time before the cartoon thrones and Victorian animal costumes start arriving in bulk.

Wake 2 / Family Portrait

Two more pieces for the company auction. It's been on for an hour and the place is hopping. There are about 100 pieces. At six tonight the five or so hottest items go up for live bidding. I'll post again soon about how it turns out.

Mister Snips

Last minute auction submission. Quick, thin acrylic washes. The art show is hanging and Friday the pieces will be sold. I have my eye on many of my co-workers paintings. A lot of amazing work has been submitted. I got the title for this one from my 7 year old.

You say Kanutu, I say Mugato

A goofy little painting for an art auction to be held at the office. Proceeds from the mounting contributions will bring high backed-leather chairs, overstuffed humidors and skull-shaped grog steins to an otherwise stark work pod.
Quick and dirty acrylic and Prismacolor.
