I’ve been organizing my paintings over the past few weeks and I came across some pieces that I didn’t like, or I felt that the work was weak in some cases. So I sanded down those old canvases, leaving pieces of my old compositions, and later reworking them into new paintings. Below are several samples of what I’ve done.

“Fairy Moonscape”. A mystical fairy on a warm summer night.

“Mad Girl”. This was once an abstract painting that didn’t work. After a bit of sanding, I painted the figure and skulls over the abstract splashes of paint.

“Goth Night Out”. In the tradition of The Mad Hatter.
