I've been away from the blog world for a little bit now, but I'm back and I've got a backlog of stuffs to share over the coming weeks.
As for where I've been, well the San Diego Comic Con for one. A good time was had by all and Hard 8 did very well. If you haven't picked up your copy yet, stop by the Hard 8 production blog to buy a copy online or to locate a store near you.
I also recently attended a couple beautiful and fun weddings. Big congrats to Mr. and Mrs The Gute and Mr. and Mrs Eren Blanquet. I wish you all the best on your new lives together.
Lastly, I spent the last two weeks in the small mountain town of Seiad Valley in Northern California. My grandma has a cabin up there and I try to spend some time there every summer. While I was there this year, I brought up my painting kit and did a couple little studies. The first is of my grandma's cabin. The second is an unfinished study of Indian Creek in Happy Camp, CA. By the time I got all my crap lugged down the mountain side and it made it's way across the water and I got it all set up, I ran out of very much time before the sun dipped behind the mountains. At least that's the excuse I used for how crappy it came out.
And to round out this post, I'm going to post up some more studies I did a few weeks ago during some sessions of William Wray's awesome plein air class. Unfortunately, the class has been cancelled for the time being and I miss it already. Hopefully it will be starting again sooner rather than later!
