Superhero Kid Portrait on Canvas

Jim Public, Superhero Kid, June 4, 2012 I received some commissions to make a few superhero portraits on canvas. I was able to make the colors and characterization a little richer in these paintings than in the works on paper, and to experiment with depth of color and lighting effects by using acrylic glazes. Here is the first one I finished.

Paintings on exhibit and available in Las Vegas

If you’re in the Las Vegas area you have an opportunity to see some of my painting studies on exhibit at Jerry Misko’s ATM Pop Up Gallery @ Creative Space. Tonight is First Friday, so the gallery is open from 6 to 9pm. The exhibition also features artwork by Sean Slattery, Jerry Misko, Jessica Starkey, JW Caldwell, Matthew Couper, and others. Jerry’s idea for ATM is that the artwork is strong and affordable. My pieces are between $30 and $140. Do check it out. ATM Pop Up Gallery @ Creative Space, Las Vegas, NV
