Moose Bear

This is a 14x11 acrylic on canvas painting I did for Tim's Dad's 50th birthday. He is a big hunter and a moose and bear are some of the game he has hunted. I like the simplicity of the image, and the trees reminded my of inkblots. Any suggestions as to what else I could do with this kind of style?

Jay Peak

Hello! Just to keep things updated, I got an internship at Jay Peak Resort which is the big ski mountain in the town over. I'll be helping make posters and ads for events that come up, so I'm excited about it. It's good experience and will help add to my portfolio. Now I just have to keep looking for paid work. Here is the first thing I worked on, a poster for the Arts & Crafts Fair, it will be printed in three sizes, 8.5x11, 5.5x8.5, and 11x17.

I will also be doing newspaper ads for the event, and those will be black and white of various sizes. The weather is starting to get cooler, and fall is going to arrive soon! I also have a bunch of canvases so expect some more paintings in the near future!
