Bird Patterns

I've been fooling around with some new techniques while creating work for my December shows. This is an image transfer over encaustic medium and decorative burlap. City Art Gallery will be having the reception on December 4th followed by a one day Craft Sale on Saturday, the 5th from 12 - 6 pm. Look for Trish Tunney, who will be there, taking Green Screen Holiday Portraits in her sidewalk studio in front of City Art Gallery. Tedda Hughes will also be having a reception on Saturday, the 5th. Come on out for some arty fun next weekend!

Poured Pear

I tried a new technique last week - pouring the wax over a drawing. It didn't work, so I fooled around some more with an awl and some oil pigments and came up with this little guy. I'm now on to something completely different, but I will have to get back to making more like this one.

Exhale and Release

This is one of the pieces I made before Open Studios. It's hard to believe it's already November and Open Studios was almost a month ago. The best thing about this time of year, is the deep, rich light, and with this weather, it's been great to be in the studio. This Friday City Art Gallery is having an opening reception and both Trish and I are in the show - though you won't see this piece, November is all about mod animals for me.
