Back to another Doodle Sketch in the Brown Sketchbook (December 31, 2013)

Below is my newest doodle sketch that I created as the next page in my brown sketchbook. I have not yet applied the white light source that gives it more dimension.

In fact,I liked working so much in the very wide aspect ration of the scroll that I have decided to expand the space of the work lengthwise and possibly turn it into a vector painting as the final art.This very wide scroll aspect ratio is very interesting to me because it is working a composition in a very unusual way. This very wide ratio lends itself to a linear and sequential reading of the work, but still has to work as a static composition – which intrigues me.

This is the very first piece that I thought of the title as I was creating it and actually kind moved the drawing in that direction. The title is, “The Birth”. I thought that I would post it as it is so far.



Bird Print (December 23, 2013)

If anyone has been following my blog since the beginning – you may remember that the very first entry was a bird print. It was the outline of a bird that flew into a window and was killed but left an outline of its shape. Well it happened again so below I have my second bird print.




Solo Exhibition at the Carnegie Gallery (December 12, 2013)

Friday December 13, 2013 I will be showing an exhibition of my recent works in the Semmens Gallery at the Carnegie Gallery, 1028 Scott Boulevard, Covington, Kentucky 41011. The reception is Friday December 13, 2013 from 5:30 – 9:00. The exhibition runs through February 14, 2014.

My most recent work is a large narrative scroll that is 11 feet by 31 inches and will be exhibited on one wall of the gallery. The title of the piece is,  “Ancient makes a rare appearance motivating a pneumatic Actuator to demagnetize the current between Son and his Destiny”. I have attached a jpeg of the image below.

The exhibit will also display my felted wool sculptures as well as several framed pyrographs. This collection of work obviously shows my practice of working in many different mediums at the same time. I get many different ideas all the time. When I sketch these ideas or process them, I am very conscious of what would be the best media to execute them in. The works would not have the same message if constructed out of any other material.




Latest Erasures (December 4, 2013)

These two are the last erasures that I did while quaffing a few beers over the Thanksgiving holiday. I find it interesting to compare these to the very first ones I created.
