Jean Reno

8" x 8" x 0.5" acrylic on canvas
This is supposed to be the French actor Jean Reno (circa 1995).  Or you could pretend it's Maxsim Chmerkovskiy from Dancing with the Stars.  Your choice.

Benicio Del Toro

8" x 8" x 0.5" acrylic on canvas
I didn't realize until I tried to paint his face, but there's something similar between Benicio Del Toro and Brad Pitt.  Not that you can tell from this painting.

Tree tree tree

Another twisty tree
8" x 8" x 0.5" acrylic on canvas
I was trying to paint this photo of a tree I found on wikimedia.

Do you remember that tree song Mr. Rogers used to sing?  It popped up in my brain while I was painting this.

Joaquin Phoenix

My collection of actor paintings is a little embarrassing.  And yet, the collection grows, and so does the weirdness.
8" x 8" x 0.5" acrylic on canvas

Joaquin is one of my favorite actors, and I was wishing he would make more movies.  Then I looked him up for this painting and found he's making lots of movies...  I just haven't seen them.  I guess if a movie isn't a big budget blockbuster, it's not on my radar.  Sad!

Tomatoes of darkness

Today's still life:

16" x 20" x 0.5" acrylic on canvas

Why are the tomatoes lurking in the dark?  Maybe because they are in the nightshade family of flowering plants.  Or maybe because they are surrounded by confusion as to whether they are a fruit or a vegetable.   Or...  I wanted a dark painting next to my kitchen that would coordinate with a dark color scheme.  Art!
