Finished. A very hungry Steggy

I love when a painting is finished.

This is a small one. 9x6 inches. Oil on Canvas. He still needs a name so any suggestions would be appreciated.

This stegosaurus is part of my painting resolutions of : Dinos, Doodles, and portraits. He is also part of the reasoning behind my previous dino sketches. I posted those as well to better illustrate where the painting came from.

What Im painting now...

This is my favorite of the FOUR dino paintings Im sorta kinda working on now.

I actually just took stock of the canvases Im trying to complete. I stopped counting at 18. This is the list:

4 DINOS ( one involving the love for a unicorn)
4 Monster Doodles
1 Anatomical heart ache painting inspired by the poetry of Gregory Sherl (but not in the way that those who might have read Sherl wil be thinking "anatomical")
4 birds (one humming, one with inspirational life message)
1 giraffe
2 colorful I-dont-know-whats-its
2 canvases pastel primer-ed w/o subject

thats 18 (and theres always the this and that ive been meaning to finish but havent touched in 6 months)! AND im about to start a marsupial commission.

Hopefully a few of these will be completed and up soon.

Monster Love Notes, from the Sharpie Doodle journal

I want my Monsters to say things that your co-workers, spouse, and neighbors should say to you.

06/2011 update: The original "you make me happy" Sharpie Monster Doodle shown above is for sale on my ESTY site.

Thanks a bunch for looking!

This way up.

Latest Monster Doodle.

I was thinking a Buffalo-Tentacle-Face type of sharpie monster doodle- all creaptastic and wonderful... and I was about to sign my work (which is always the last thing I do to a piece) when I flipped the sketch book....

And now its more of a: Yorkiepuppy that was bit by a Octo-zombie-monster doodle. (I know you can see it.)

Anyways I love them both, I just cant decide which to love more.

Sharpie Doodle, Non Monster Love

Yes, Im still Obsessing over the Sharpie Doodles. I wanted to rock an animal and a few other feel goods.

Check back soon. Im constantly working on these doodles, and I'll have more up in a few days.

a few more monster doodles..

I cant really stop drawing these things. I think the top is my favorite of all the ones done before. He really embodies how I feel after Ive ate a few too many pieces of Papa Johns. ya know, could button your pants- but that would just be too painful... and I know a Greg who told me to paint emotion. I think bloat is an under visualized emotion.

anyway, I think I def want to turn this one into a painting.

As for the one below.. I figured he was icky enough to add to this post.

Check back soon. I'm sure I'll have more up in a day or two.
