A throwback to life, not so long ago, but before social distancing: printmaking at the log cabin print shop with Purdue University’s Black Cultural Center. Thank you Rene Thomas, for the photo, andRegina Lang for bringing the students to our community! Hope we can “flatten the curve” and see each other in person soon!
Ive finished carving the John P Parker house linocut. I started it last week. Its a small linocut 4 1/2×6″, so it was a challenge getting the small details.
Time to proof. Will update with the result!
Awhile ago I started 3 paintings. They were different interpretations of the same scene. Since then, I’ve made some progress
also, since then, I have been gifted with an old drafting/artist table. It belonged to one of my best friends, also an artist, Lucciano Moral. He was making room in his house, and thought I would like it. He was RIGHT!!! It’s perfect! Thank you!
Its warm, but windy today at the log cabin print shop.
Today, im going to make a linocut of John P Parker’s house. A few days ago, i made this sketch while in Ripley, ohio.
I made a few adjustments to the design, and now, im ready to start carving!
Saturday’s carving progress
Stay tuned for updates!
I want to start the year doing more painting.
Over the summer, while in Vicco, KY, I sketched a scene of a little church beside a creek. Using the original sketch as reference, i drew these three compositions, using a sharpie marker.
I like all 3 for different reasons, so I’m going to make 3 different paintings
the one on the left has it’s base colors…now time to color the other 2
UPDATE: 7pm a little more color, will do some more painting tomorrow
STAY TUNED FOR LIVE UPDATES
in 2020, i want to spend less time on social media, more on my personal website. Happy New Year!
Its sunny today, but supposed to be freezing cold tomorrow, so i took my pen and sketchbook for a walk around old washington
Theres something refreshing about pen and paper: no photos, no eraser
Just working from life, and capturing the moment
Hope you are enjoying the day!
I’m in the middle of my second kiln firing at my home studio, and made this little sketch while watching it heat up.
Wish me luck!
I’ve been busy in the clay studio. It’s been a learning curve, but I have figured out the technique to transfer designs onto pots.
Now that I know what I’m doing I started a new design for rice paper transfers. The theme is Trees and houses.
Today’s burn didn’t work out like I had hoped, but I have another screen ready, and will try again tomorrow
now it’s time for a new color: Electric Blue!!
I love surface decoration. One of my favorite forms is the rectangle or oval. It’s almost like a canvas for a traditional painting. Today I handbuilt a small oval plate.
And I love my critters! Spent some time working on new ones:
Stay tuned to see the progress!
