When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

The open spaces in these paintings emphasize the psychological space of the characters without actually revealing anything about them. And they're kind of funny.
Sometimes a title can really propel a piece that one extra notch further into the realm of compelling; for example this first piece. The others have titles more appropriately descriptive, less telling, but that's okay too, because sometimes it's good to wonder.
