Here are scans of four of the five small paintings that I did for the 2016 Kansas City Flatfile show at the H&R Block Artspace:
“Waterfall Crystal 1,” watercolor and india ink, 6×8 inches, May 2016.
“Monster Crystal 1,” watercolor, 6 x 8 inches, May 2016.
“Monster Crystal 2,” watercolor, 7 x 11 inches, May 2016.
“Alien River Shaman 1,” watercolor, 8.5 x 11.5 inches, May 2016. A riff on a scene from Skew.
It was my first art show in KC! I’m thankful that Glade and I were invited. I had a fifth watercolor that was too big for my scanner and the photos didn’t turn out. Maybe I’ll try to document it again later.
I haven’t done much painting with watercolors. I like how you can mix the colors on the paper by doing wet-on-wet or layering washes. It feels more spontaneous than having to mix all my colors beforehand like I do with my gouache and acrylic paintings.
My wife Glade had the first art opening at her shop-within-a-shop Paper Party this past weekend. The show, called “Nature Club,” is a collection of paintings of cacti, produce, and whales by local cartoonist Melinda Tracy Boyce.
Each piece is a beautiful watercolor with great details. Here are some of my faves:
Check out this detail shot of that one (which is the largest at 22.25×30″):

This past week Glade and I have been hard at work getting our collaborative art show for End of an Ear together. We’re going to call it Boongoo Studiooze Presents: SPACE OOZE. It’ll run all April and we’ll have a reception from 6-8pm on 4/20. Here’s a shot of us working on the drawings:
In the bottom middle is an india ink drawing that I drew that Glade colored. On the right I’m working on a gouache painting that Glade is going to draw on with gel pens.
Hey y’all, sorry that it’s taken me so long to get a second post done this week!
Per request, I’m posting a close-up shot of the drawing that I did for Glade for Valentine’s Day:
The drawing is watercolor over india ink. It depicts Glade and I defeating a monster with rays emanating from our wedding rings. If this drawing is too big for your computer screen you can see it various sizes on my flickr.
