Low-Commitment Projects: Abstract Paint-By-Number

abstract paint-by-number

I made Abstract Paint-By-Numbers for this week’s Low-Commitment Project because I thought the idea was hilarious.  I still do.  I’m overly pleased with the outcome of the unpainted guideline images and underwhelmed with the finished paintings.  This was my first try, and I selected the colors before actually painting the paintings, so that might not have been the most sensible way to go about it.

This week’s Low-Commitment Project is my VHS Tapes.  They’re painted MDF sculptures, and I think my favorite one is Pretty in Pink, even though the people look weird.

Low-Commitment Projects: Tiny Construction Zone

October 17, 2016

Low-Commitment Projects: A Wooden Bar

September 12, 2016

This is one of my favorite projects I’ve done in recent memory.  I’d been thinking about it for ages.  A Wooden Bar is a set of painted sculptures (acrylic on MDF) representing a complete bar on a reasonable budget.  In my mind, these are like props.  See more photos on Low-Commitment Projects.

Low-Commitment Projects: Yaddo Map Paintings

August 15, 2016

This is a series of paintings (and one drawing) I began while in residence at Yaddo.  I spent days walking along each path and road, using a running app to track my movements.  I used this and google satellite view to create a new Yaddo map, then started the paintings based on that landscape.  See Yaddo […]

Low-Commitment Projects: Pool Patterns

August 1, 2016

Pool Patterns is my latest Low-Commitment Project.  I created these painters and masking tape patterns on the fence surrounding the pool at Yaddo.  The sad part was the removal–it took longer to take the tape off than to put it on.
