category: studies & works in progress

Dreaming Head 3There’s now a fifth page for the studies & works in progress gallery. Most of these sketches and studies have never been shown publicly so it’s another interesting look into the ideas and how they take shape and change over time.

In the Works in Progress section there are a few pictures of studies for the painting Shunga Remix.

In May my sister and I visited our dad at his studio in Old Town, Eureka, CA. After a few months delay, here are some photographs.

Ecstatic Emissions study 4The studies & works in progress gallery is finally open. Through the studies you can see some of the creation process and ideas behind the artwork. There are over 300 studies, sketches, and reference studies so it’s taken a while to assemble this many photographs and there are still more coming. Each image in the studies gallery is also linked directly to and from each finished work so it should be easy to jump into the studies section from the rest of the web site.

The navigation is set up differently than the other galleries since there are so many thumbnails it didn’t make sense to show all of them at once. Please try it out and and let us know what you think.

2007-12-12 studyThis is a study from December of 2007. I asked my dad to take some photographs as he’s working so that I can post some works in progress also. Most of you already know that some of his paintings take many months to finish so I thought it would be nice to see them as they’re being created.

We’re going to add another gallery called studies and works in progress for these pictures.
