The Hand Magazine #21

2 pieces of mine were featured in the latest issue of "The Hand" Magazine. This was the first time I submitted any work to this publication. I am glad I did. In the same issue I see some familiar artists' works I have always admired.

Vanitas 15 work in progress (07-12-2018)

Last week I started a new Vanitas drawing. This is #15. All in graphite. I have not completely figured out all the visual elements yet and am still looking for a right object to place in this image.

Inside & Out: Vanitas show

I am going to be a part of a group show by Ohio Art League called, "Inside & Out: Vanitas" at Griffin Gallery, Gahanna, OH. When they announced this juried show, I thought it was just perfect to show my Vanitas pieces. So I entered and got 2 pieces accepted. Below are those pieces and the DM they designed using an image of one of my pieces.

New piece Vanitas 14 completed

Just finished my latest piece from the Vanitas series I have been working on for a while. This is #14, done all in pastel on Arches board. 18" x 12". Initially I was planning on doing this in graphite but I changed my mind after realizing that this composition really could use strong chromatic contrast to enhance the dramatic effect. I think it worked out well.

Ohio State Fair Fine Art Exhibit

Today I received an email notifying my recent photo piece "Panacea" (renamed from "Cascade") had been accepted into this year's Ohio State Fair Fine Arts Exhibit. Well, now at least I will get to show the piece in public and see how people's reactions might be. I am kind of looking forward to that.
