New piece for “Red Death Masquerade” show at 1 Wicked Gallery in NC

I’m excited to be showing in another state. I made the piece below for the “Red Death Masquerade” show at One Wicked Gallery in North Carolina.

Here are a few progress photos. I found a really nice paper at Michael’s (I ♥ Michael’s!). I glued it to the board and painted it. Then painted the dog skull on top.

This piece took a little bit longer to finish than I thought. I can’t help but use a very small brush.

Below is the finished piece.

Jinx is working on a new piece for a show this summer

I’ve been working on a new piece for a show this summer. Below is the progress so far.

Skully with a clown nose!

Below is the underpainting. Very light washes of paint.

And today I started to solidify shapes. It doesn’t look so washy anymore. The mouth area wasn’t really touched. I was at work. But the top looks better.

Stay tuned for more updates!

“Skull Stack” miniature painting by Jinx

I originally started this painting to pass the time at work. It turned out pretty cute. I had started a much larger version many years ago and never finished it. It just sits in my closet. After seeing how cute this one turned out I may have to take a look at the forgotten one.
