Every Quarter at the school I teach at we hold a "Concept Art Jam". It's a contest of sorts for students to draw and paint new ideas on the fly. I usually hire a model or two in costume to pose for several hours for reference and inspiration. The students sharpen their rendering skills while spontaneously inventing a new concept on the spot. We award first, second and third place prizes at the end of the Jam. Often I paint with them or demo specific techniques. When I walked in the classroom one afternoon and saw the model I hired wearing this amazing and creepy bird-like head piece and robe I just had to try and capture it's haunting quality!

Every once in a while you need to brighten up the surroundings and keep the walls looking fresh. I recently updated my main website www.treygallaher.com . Just a few changes and rearranging for clarity and navigation. If you haven't been by in a while you may notice a few differences starting with the Portfolio Page where you will notice that in addition to my portfolio categories there is now a small list appearing off to the right!

Say 'hello' to the Recently Added list. If you are a more frequent visitor then you will notice this list changing more than anything else. Any new work that has been posted will show up here too. This list will save you time from navigating through work you have already seen and get you to the new stuff faster!

If you haven't been by in a while then feel free to poke around and take your time looking through the portfolios. For up-to-the-minute info you will notice the DIRECT Facebook and Twitter page links located on each categorical page.

To each portfolio page I have added a lot more space for readability and to showcase larger works. As many of you may know I have been working in oils and on larger canvases for several years now. This new layout will allow for larger images in order to showcase those gritty details and brush strokes.

As always I want to plug the Events page to showcase any exhibits or shows I may be appearing in. Check back here to find out when & where!

Apologies to everyone out there in Cyber-land! I haven't posted in a few months now but I have been a little preoccupied in my personal life... I GOT HITCHED! You never realize what goes into planning a wedding and all the craziness until you plan one yourself... Let me just say we kept it simple, beautiful and sweet... and it still had a huge impact on the rest of my life. It was totally worth it however and things are now settling back down to a normal groove again, I'm painting like a mad man again and should be posting-up more soon!
