Man at the Market

I'm momentarily finished with the "Man at the Market" collage. This will be a potential piece for my solo exhibition next year. I've figured that I'll just make as many pieces as possible this year, then go back and tweak them up in a few areas before narrowing down my selections for the exhibition.

Progress Picture #2: Man at the Market

And I'm almost done with this one. Just a couple more sit downs and this should be complete.

Spring is in the Air

And like all of my collages, I get a little tired of working on them at some point. This one is done for the moment--I'll return to it later, probably in a couple of months (as you can see there are only a few minor adjustments).

Zoo Visit

I don't have a studio update for this post, but I do have some photos for future inspiration. I went to the zoo today and decided to post my favorite pictures from the visit--my favorite shot is of the hippo sticking his tongue out at us.

Nocturne Exhibition

Yesterday I gallery-sat for the Del Ray Artisans "Nocturne" exhibition. The exhibition will be open until February 15th. Right below are pictures of my "Howl" collage that's currently hanging in the exhibition. I also took a few pictures of the other artwork that was up--there were quite a few beautiful works of art.

Progress Picture #1: Spring is in the Air

I've gotten started with another 24"x18" collage portrait. I've decided to make this one look more abstract like the "Artist from a Distance" piece.

Boy with Dog

This is finished for now. I'll return to it later on--I've discovered that it's best to keep pushing forward with my work. If I'm tired with the way a piece is turning out, it's best to move on and return to it when I've had some time away from it.
