Painting Progression

This is a post that I've been wanting to do for a while now and just never got around to finishing it. Below is a progression video of one of the double page spreads from Mr. Groundhog Wants The Day Off. Although the video quality isn't excellent I am still happy with the video that I was able to put together. It shows a little insight to how my paintings look from start to finish. I hope you Enjoy watching! :)

Chalk Walk

Below are some pictures from a Chalk Walk competition in West Hartford, CT.
I recently participated in a sidewalk chalk competition which was part of the West Hartford Art League's annual ArtWalk. My idea was spontaneous. I came up with it literally that morning
and just wanted to do something happy and colorful. It was fun working on such a large scale with only 6 hours to complete it. It was awesome to see all the other artists of all ages participating and turned out to be a wonderful day! Check out more pictures from the chalk competition on the Hartford Courant website here.
