What’s it all about?
Please read carefully:

For a long while, I’ve resisted doing custom work. But no longer. I love painting the Soul Moon style SO much, I want to share it with everyone. Visit THIS LISTING to reserve your exclusive spot for a commissioned painting in the Soul Moon style. (There is a separate listing for when your painting is complete here:

Check out these sample paintings. These are previous Soul Moon canvasses, either completed by commission or for private sale.

After reserving your custom painting, you’ll message me with your preference for the following:

* Primary color
* Secondary color
* Your choice of canvas size and material: (Choose between: 16″ x 20″ Wood Panel, 12″ x 24″ Wood Panel, or a huge 12″ x 36″ Cotton Canvas.)

Final pricing for your finished unique painting is:

16″ x 20″ Wood Panel Final Price – $260 (1 moon)
12″ x 24″ Wood Panel Final Price – $260 (2 moons)
12″ x 36″ Cotton Canvas Final Price – $360 (2 moons)

Each painting will be in  Soul Moon style. There are NO exceptions. Meaning, your custom painting will have crescent moons (see the pics) with trees, flowers, mushrooms, and other vivid natural elements bursting from the moons. The 16×20 option will have 1 moon (see photos). The 12×24 and 12×36 options will have two opposing moons (see photos) each with a different color scheme of your choice.

Each painting will have two primary colors, which will be blended in my signature style. I can blend any two colors, although obviously some combinations will look more vivid than others.

ALL paintings will be finished in acrylic and coated with two layers of satin varnish.

The back of each painting will be signed by the artist, me.

Each painting will require approx. 1 week to finish, and a few days after shipping to arrive at your door.

IF the painting is to your liking when complete, you’ll go to this listing to complete payment:

IF the painting is NOT to your liking, you have NO further obligation. I’ll keep and sell the painting privately. (The $10 reserve fee is non-refundable.)

Painting with Darkness – Part X

After a short layoff, I’m back to doing terrible things with my paintbrush.

Dark cities, twisted terrains, and this time around, an eerie, abstract tree.

I call this one, ‘The Last Autumn.’  The original is for sale here, if you’re interested.

Now let’s talk about how The Last Autumn came to be:

Last Autumn 1

It all started with a 24″x 24″ super-thick white canvas. I used a straightedge, a level, and a twenty-year old pencil (yes, really) to divide the canvas into perfect halves. With my little wooden palette, I paired up acrylic golds, blacks, reds, yellows, and whites. I mixed them at random, and when I was done with the first coat, I poked golden dots all over the right side of the canvas. Voila. What you see above.

Last Autumn 2

For the left side, life got a little easier. I mixed gold, black, and umber, and went nuts with fast, broad strokes. Before it dried, I poked little white ‘leaves’ into the background. The difference between the two halves was stark. I loved what I was seeing.

Last Autumn 3

About 0.0003 seconds before starting with the right-side tree, I had a revelation. A. I wanted to flip the painting over so the darker half would be on the right and the red/gold half on the left. I have no idea why. It just felt right. B. I pulled out a sand-based gel with which to paint the tree. For those not familiar, the gel adds a texture you can see and feel when you’re up close to the painting. It’s so ridiculously fun to paint with; I suggest everyone try it.

Last Autumn 4

For the left side of the painting, I mixed pure black with more sand gel. I used four different brushes, starting big and working down to the tiniest branches using pretty much the smallest acrylic brush you can buy. It was tedious, but I loved it. Each flick of my wrist gave life to a new branch. The picture here is pre-varnishing; the sand gel takes forever to dry. The plan for this painting is to use a heavy gloss, which will make the colors pop and allow The Last Autumn to be a centerpiece for any room.
