Boy Tom, is there anything you can't do?

These are great! It doesn't even look like a new medium for you... looks like you've been doing them all along.

Keep up the good work! Look forward to seeing the new pieces!

I wish I could paint... I have to settle for carving wood.

Hi Tom -

Looks wicked cool man, can't wait to see Thor shrunken head velvets too!

In my minds eye I can picture a Thor style jungle scene; huge boiling kettle over a log fire, thatched huts, prisoners hanging upside down suspended from vine traps, savage natives dancing under moonlight etc...I know you already have thought of this before I have

You're totally in the groove!
The candle/Skull study is a piece of art in itself!
It's gonna be mind-blowing once you throw

Thanks Lil' Lost!! OceaOtica..That's one of the best complements I could have! I had a painting instructor at Art Center named Jack Lynwood. He was one of the main illustrators for the boxes of the Aurora models and he was incredible. He used to teach about knowing light and color and perspective out of the head..with nothing to look at at times. He would get a platic model and have to make it look like it was a real thing in a real setting...with all the drama and lighting invented. He also had a saying that relates to velvet in this case more than ever. He used to say...The sign of a great painter is that they can look at something or imagine something and understand that what seperates an amature from a pro is not WHAT to paint...but what NOT to paint in a subject. The viewers eye fills in things more than we realize if you hit the right notes and punches...even if loose. Velvet cries for this..the more black, raw velvet exposed in the shadows and negative areas..the fresher and more impacting the image becomes I am discovering.

Happy Halloween!

Thor, frickin cool painting teacher to have! ya, if you look at that box art, specially the kits they had that were like extra parts kits, you know the old tree with the skull and the vulture and such, those covers looked like velvets. really works of art, really great stuff. i think you really tapped into something here. gives me new thoughts on my experiments with velvet painting. right on, look forward to seeing more of your work.

Well.. I did this fella into the wee hours last night .... I have learned a LOT and will improve the next shrunken head.... Happy Halloween!




These are not the best photos...the background is much more subtle...

The feeling here is a head on a stake...lit from a nearby fire and the moonlight at it's back....sort of a magik night....
