What I'm Working on Now

Now On my Easel

July 13th, 2012
This is a very loose color study for a 20″ X 28″ portrait which is now on my easel. The portrait is a surprise to all (but the person who commissioned it) and is of a dear talented writer and friend who recently left us. It’ll be unveiled at Necon, The Northeastern Writers Conference, in Rhode Island on July 19, 2012, and on my website soon thereafter.

Right now on my easel is a private commission, a painting of H.P. Lovecraft. This is the color study. It shows Lovecraft standing on the rocks in Narragansett Bay with the city he loved, Providence, Rhode Island, in the background. The viewer can interpret  for himself the meaning behind the stormy sky, lighting strike and troubled surf lapping at Lovecraft’s feet as he maintains his precarious footing.
