Blog / 2019 / What Pleases Me About Figurative Art

September 2, 2019

I don’t make a lot of figurative artwork. Besides the mixed media pieces featured in this video, there’s just this book cover. That said, sometimes non-portraits appear within portraits I paint, like with the background figures here and here.

All six of the Camp Stomping Ground images are available for $100 plus shipping—see all currently available artworks. There are prints and t-shirts of the group of kids, the artist, the nail-painter, the archer, the unicorn, and the newt in my Redbubble shop.
