Eating Crow

This is a more contemporary painting. I took this shot on the beach in Costa Rica. This is one of the largest paintings I've done, measuring 48" x 24". Great for above a sofa.  So interesting, especially for my art students, that when we imagine something like a crow we think "black". As we study the image there's so much more involved thanks to beautiful, incredible lighting! Hope you enjoy.

Smart Guy

My's been SOOOOOO long since I've posted. Just goes to show how busy I get during the school year. I have been having a creative blast since school is out for summer.

Check out this new little guy created with wire and paper mache! I LOVE him! He's sitting on top of three very smart books (electromagnetics, mechanical measurements). Get the picture? His clothing has lots of mathematical equations and graphs. He's brilliant. Every time I look at him he looks like he just came up with an incredible solution to some mathematical quandary. Yep, he's contemplating something important right now!

I love the process of paper mache. It's so much fun to see these characters come to life! Let me know if you are interested in purchasing this piece. I can also do commissioned pieces. Have a favorite book? Let me create your favorite character using pages from the book. I know...I tear up books. No haters!
