Here’s part of my outline drawing for this year’s Hallowe’en painting. Don’t wanna give too much away, but it’s one of those things that really freaks some people out, my husband included. EEEK! Maybe he won’t see this one.
Original is available.
24¼" x 18¼" (61 cm x 46 cm) pastel on pastel paper
25 limited edition Gallery prints
100 limited edition Studio prints
open edition Portfolio prints
Diving right into another piece! I noticed how some pieces start off more refined but others, like this one, are more rough and smudgey. I equate it to oil painting and using a palette knife over a fine brush.
A while back author Dee Michel reached out to me regarding use of one of my works. Usually when authors ask, it's for a gay romance novel. This book, 'Friends of Dorothy: Why Gay Men Love The Wizard of Oz,' instead, is an interesting look at the appeal 'The Wizard of Oz' has held for generations of gay men.
My painting 'Once In A Lullaby' appears on the back cover and page 175, because I myself reflected on the rainbow connection to that movie.
I don't think showering together saves water... since it often leads to other activities.
I almost didn't give him a lot of body hair, so I also have a very limited edition 'shaved' variant of "Showerhead": ONLY 10 Studio prints. Select Shaved Variant in the item drop down list to own one of these rarities.

It's still in the design phase so all the artwork is not finalized, however the pieces will be ones that have not appeared in my previous calendars.
Orders containing the calendar will not ship until they are in stock - so you might want to order other items separately.
When I paint a figure at an angle that is more from above or below I realize how we most commonly view each other and ourselves on the vertical plain, the reflective face to face perspective. Think about how we have the ability to immediately identify a human shape in silhouette from this perspective, but when we change the angles (such as viewing from above) the outline becomes less familiar, shapes get distorted, some things become hidden while other come into view.
My latest, St. Luke's Summer, is all about that last burst of hot weather that swoops in during early autumn, requiring you to peel off the layers, because you've already stored away your shorts and tank tops.
The original and limited edition prints are now available for 10% off during the 'release week special'.

B.K. Wright's new novel "Dare to Love" is out and features my painting "Holy Trinity" on the cover. So cool! Having been inspired, when I was a kid, by the bold illustrated covers on fantasy, sci-fi, and romance paperbacks at the drugstore. It's always a thrill to see my own work on one. That's also why I like to get a hard copy, rather than just an ebook. You can get either, the hard copy or ebook now at Amazon.
