The USA Visual Arts Faculty is exhibiting work at the Eastern Shore Arts Center in Fairhope, AL for the month of April. I have one piece in the show! I just got back from the First Friday Art Walk and we had a great turnout. Everyone’s work looks wonderful and it is definitely worth seeing, if I do say so myself. If you happen to be over there, stop by and check it out. The work comes down on April 25 so you have plenty of time! You can make a day of it and walk down to Page and Palette and get lunch at Panini Pete’s (my new favorite lunch place)!
A student from my Art Appreciation class just gave me this work that she made for me! Its full of found objects and fixed to an old High Lights Book. I love it! What a great day!
This is a watercolor portrait of my daughter that I just finished! I’ve been working on it for a couple months. My goal in this piece is to capture the sensory experience of discovering sand for the first time. I plan to document several of her “first discoveries” through watercolor. I’m playing with the idea of contrasting lost and found edges to convey the idea of ephemeral memories.
I just finished this portrait of Lena. It was so much fun working with those eyes! ;)
I just finished this adorable portrait of Jack. I can’t wait to mail it out to his Mama! On to the next!
Its been tough to concentrate on anything (much less art related) with a new baby. Now that my little one has started taking longer naps, I feel like I can get something accomplished. She still naps for 30 minutes but every now and then I get an hour or two. I am hoping that this time its “an hour or two” so I can put some more layers on this little guy.
I started this watercolor about a year ago as a demo for a watercolor course that I was teaching. This is an 18″ x 24″ portrait of my god son. I hope to finish it soon so I can ship it out to his Mama. I will post the finished work when its complete. Hopefully sooner rather than later. ;)
