One of the themes I return to quite often is the idea of a hidden world, and I don’t mean in some conspiracy theory sort of way, but in a secret lives of animals sort of way. A few years ago I introduced several sketches of mice doing various things, most notably my four elements sketches which I am working on making into a set of four paintings. But I have played with several other mice sketches.
A returning theme in these sketches is that there are two factions, the faction that the mice belong too, and the Grey Ones. And that is as far as it goes 🙂
Sketching is the way I make sure I practice and get just a little bit better each day; at times however, like yesterday, I miss a day because I am working on a painting…
A few weeks ago I released a series of sketches I was planning to turn into paintings, all involving mice. I began with the wind mouse, mainly because this is the only painting in the set that has a tie to a season. Here is what I have so far.
As I have mentioned before the Devil really does plague the details in my work, so I have a bit more I feel I need to do in order to call this guy done… then I think it is time to move on to Fire!
