Summer in my world.


If you live in or have visited West Hollywood over the past few months and stopped in for a bite at Guisado's on Santa Monica blvd. You no doubt have seen a few of my paintings.  I am the Featured Artist there through December.  I've been there since June so if you haven't made it there yet, there is still time. I've been rotating paintings on and off the wall so more of my works get a chance to be seen.

Check out the page about me on their website. [CLICK HERE]

The first to be displayed were "Sidewalk Sale" 36x48 oil on canvas, and "West Hollywood Daydream" 36x35 oil on canvas.

Me at Guisado's

The next 2 month's feature "14" 36x36 oil on canvas, and "Community" 36x48 oil on canvas.  "Community" is the smaller version of the Faces of WeHo project that I've been working on, 38 portraits of people that live/work/play in West Hollywood.  These are faces that I have encountered in my daily life here.

It has been a hot and humid summer so I've kept myself busy in the studio when I haven't been hiding out in a shady spot at the beach.
Me hard at work.

The above painting and the one below are two of my favorite new works.


"Money-Maker" 36x36 Oil on Canvas awaiting final varnish
I've been told that I should create some smaller pieces for those that do not want nor have room for artwork that is 3 feet or larger like the ones above and I wanted to learn/practice watercolor techniques.  Watercolor has always been an artistic weak spot for me and, while I am showing growth, it continues to be a weak spot.

Here are a few of the watercolor works that I've been practicing on lately.
Shawn & His Grandma 11x14 watercolor on paper

"Molly Hammer" acrylic watercolor on paper

"Angelyne at Night" watercolor on paper

"The Hat" acrylic watercolor on paper
"scribbles" acrylic on paper
I'll keep creating and sharing.  Oh, and be sure to keep an eye out for a new batch of free rock art to be hitting the streets near you.  I still can't stop painting rocks.

Cheers,
Shawn
