Installed Work

You dont always get to see what your work looks like in someones home.  Today I installed two pieces Alison and I did for a home in Mainville.  They were custom work done specifically for each space.  I think they turned out great!

Good News!

Yesterday we got confirmation from the Fine Arts Funds, that Sayler Park has been given $2K to do a centennial mural!
This is exciting because, not only did Alison write the grant, I am probably going to be the one painting it. I already have so many ideas about what to do.
I also had an interview yesterday at Artworks to work on one of their Mural works projects.
If or when;) I get hired to do that, it will be a big daddy mural. Ill leave you all the link to check them out.

book art

here are some images from an altered book i made a few years ago. i’ve been wanting to make them into paintings for a while, and am planning to start very soon! i’m excited!

altered books are a great way to free up your mind and are a ‘low pressure’ way to experiment with subject matter, texture and media.

with this piece, i did a lot of cutting and abrading of the surface. i taped several pages of the book together and then cut into them with an exacto knife. then i painted them, rubbed graphite, charcoal, pastell over them and made a wonderful mess! lots of fun!
i’m hoping that i’ll be able to mimmick these same effects when i turn it into a painting:)
