Wild Art Columbus Auction

On May 2nd, I participated in an art auction for Wild Art Columbus. It was a fundraiser for this local non-profit art organization called, "Wild Goose Creative". My former student Heather Lynn Kyle invited me to be a part of this event. I uploaded several artworks on Instagram prior to this auction date, and submitted the piece that collected the most votes from people. It was a fun and exciting night, and my piece found a new home at my good friends Jeff and Abby Fisher's. It's always wonderful when my artwork sells, but it becomes very special when it goes to my good friends.

A little break from my usual stuff

I have been busy doing a few different projects and just haven't had time to dedicate myself to Vanitas series. So I decided to take a little breather and work on this little drawing just for fun and practice. This is a fish called Bronzini. I got this fish a while ago for a photo shoot. After the photo shoot, I filleted it, pan-fried it in butter and olive oil, and ate it. It was very light and flaky, tastes a lot like cod, but better.

I am working on this piece in watercolor and graphite. I just finished an easier part. The scales will be challenging...


A little experiment in pastel

I tried a pastel drawing on muslin mounted on gesso board just to see how this surface would take the medium. It was easier than I had expected. This study is 6" x 6". I think I can work big next time.


Vanitas 11 begins (01-28-2016)

Started working on a new piece Vanitas 11 a couple of days ago. This is going to be another graphite drawing. With the last one Vanitas 10, I enjoyed the process of filling in the entire background with graphite shading and I decided to repeat the process with this new piece.


Vanitas 10 finished!

I finished Vanitas 10 today. This piece went through several revisions of design and concept, but I am pretty satisfied with the end result.
