Martini / Bikini (October 28, 2014)

I found myself drawing a version of this old sketch for a friend. So I decided to finally create the finished piece. I call the final piece “Martini / Bikini” . If you look at my first drawing of it in my sketchbook, you will notice it is titled “Bikini / Martini”. The order really depends on what I see first. In the sketch I see the bikini first however in the final piece, I see the martini first. I have posted the sketch and the final piece below.





Fall Leaf Mandala (October 20, 2014)

I went out walking in the woods recently and was amazed by all the different colors of the leaves. As I walked I started to pick up some of the leaves that I thought had the most intense saturated color. It wasn’t long before I had a whole fistful of leaves. I didn’t really want to take them home so I created a leaf mandala on the ground. Of course I am aware of Andy Goldsworthy artwork and have always loved his work and method of working. So with him in mind I created a much smaller and less complicated piece inspired by his work. I love the fact that all of his work is site specific and only uses the materials that he finds on the site. I have done this many times before – just going out into the woods and creating some small artwork by just using the materials around me in the forest.




Cloudscapes (October 10, 2014)

I was quite impressed with the sky last Tuesday. It was the day of the big storms. It was around dusk and I loved all the varied activity in the sky so I took this panorama of the sky. I also included another cloudscape that I shot earlier.
