This is a page from the sketchbook that I recently sent to the Brooklyn Art Library to become a part of their 2013 Sketchbook Project. These are studies of athletic figures in action using ink, watercolor, gouache and acrylic air brush on paper.
'Postcard to Norway - Three Dancers'. Ink and watercolor on paper, 4.5" x 6.5", another painting for the #twitterexhibit. This is another small study of a project that I've been working on for the past couple of months. If you're in Moss, Norway for the Twitter exhibit, stop by to see it!
This is one of the 'Postcards to Norway' paintings for the #twitterexhibit. Ink and watercolor on paper, 4.5" x 6.5". It is a small study of a series of larger paintings that I'm currently developing. Enjoy!
These are some views of work in progress in my California Art Studio. The first and last views are my work table where I do smaller study works; the middle two views are the wall that I use for larger works. These images give you an idea about the materials, etc. that I use in my work.
Here's a shot out of my vehicle window driving along Desert Center Rice Road during the storm yesterday, 11-04-2011. Quite a haboob in Phoenix, didn't get a picture of it since my view was mostly through a brown mist, but I am still coughing up remnants of it this morning.
This is a picture my son, Elijah, drew on the evening of 9/11/2001. He was 5 years old at the time.
While we were watching the events unfold on TV, I asked him to take a break and go to his room for a while, and he drew this image.
I'm always amazed at the way children view the world - that he pieced all of the events together in a prescient moment; in part because that is the way he perceived it from viewing the unfolding events through the media, but another perspective is that by placing the planes apart from the buildings that it is an act of intellectual resistance - that it might be possible that either the event doesn't actually occur or that it could somehow be prevented.
The image depicts a frozen moment in time before the world changed.
