Working it.

“Olé” (still in progress) 18×24 Acrylics on canvas

Working.

I hope you enjoy watching this one come together beautifully or just writhe in the twisted agony of utter failure.

(Sometimes it’s both.)

New one!

Covid influence. Work in progress. 18×24 canvas. I was supposed to being working on a different project today, but this one kept pulling me right the hell back in. Still needs a couple of adjustments, but I thought some of you might enjoy watching it either bloom magnificently or crash and burn as an utter and dismal failure. Let’s see what happens! #JohnStillmunksArt #neocubist #neocubism #neoexpressionism #neoexpressionist #omahaartist #rawart #outsiderartist #thelittlegallerybenson #benchomaha #artistininstagram #painter #covidartmuseum #covid19art #paintersoninstagram https://www.instagram.com/p/CAbtouHDjX5/?igshid=1987dqbu3rzgt

Cleaned up!

Before…

Vanessa’s all cleaned up with a new foundation. She’s more “high maintenance” than I realized. Her skin is extremely porous, so I have to call an audible and put a clear coat over the new base before I can work the design I have in mind. Her mouth was a challenge to work on, but I now have a stirring of empathy for my dental hygienist. She’s developed a dry cough. “It’s just my allergies, baby”. #JohnStillmunksArt #ventriloquistdummy #ventriloquism #neoexpressionism #neoexpressionist #omahaartist #benchomaha #painter #artistsoninstagram #neocubist #artforsale #puppet #rawart #rawartist #outsiderartist https://www.instagram.com/p/CAaViDujS1u/?igshid=1bk58jdahjxoh

Vanessa Update!!

Vanessa Update! Before I do her makeover, we have to get a clean foundation. My paintings almost always start with black. It’s a carryover from the old “Sticks” days. It makes the colors more vibrant – to my mind anyway. I’ll post a couple of pics later. #JohnStillmunksArt #benchomaha #neocubist #rawartists #ventriloquistsdummy #ventriloquism #neoexpressionism #outsiderart #omahaartist
