I found this great slide show of John Francis Murphy's work on youtube. I did not make this video but thought some people might enjoy it. I know I did, enjoy!

Now on Instagram and Tumblr! For more "in progress" pics follow me on either or both of these sites.
On Instagram at http://instagram.com/paulbatch
For Tumblr go to http://paulbatchpainting.tumblr.com/
Both sites are going to have a lot more images than I will post here or on my facebook page so if you are already interested in my artistic endeavors you might find it worthwhile to check out.
The image below is on Instagram but on a side note I really am enjoying working on Arches new paper for oils. So far it has been able to take an unexpected amount of abuse.

Just put the final touches on this piece last night. I've spent a lot of time lately revisiting older paintings and pushing them further. I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out and am thinking about possibly making a larger version of it, but there's so much I want to paint I don't know if I will get to it or not. I wish I had incorporated more diagonals as I think it may be a little "stiff" but that's something I'll try and work out if in fact this becomes a larger painting.
If you are in Connecticut this will be at the PS gallery in Litchfield. Finishing up the framing for it today.
