As bad as some things are, It dawned on my middle end of last week;  I must be one of the luckiest people in the world!  I am working lots, unlike some many right now.  Between my three jobs plus my freelance/commission projects.  Which means I get to do what I love, create and develop all sorts of projects!

This lovely work was created for one of my favorite peoples.  She is as wonderful bright and cheery as the work created.  We where taking some time to catch up and she made mention in passing that she would like a version of my other zoomed in flower work.  I took that as incentive to start a painting for her.

A good friend came to me when we where in school, a long while a go asking me to create a painting for her.  We more recently revisited the subject and found hopeful inspiration in an unlikely subject; her mothers unforeseen passing.  She has a strong memory of flying home into the sunset seeing birds flying.  My hope is that she will love the work and find strength in beauty that is around us every day.

Technical details:  Acrylic on 14 by 16 stretched canvas.

Little out of balance

A very wise professor once told me "never erase, what you deem a mistake.  Don't work in pencil because you'll be more tempted to do so."  Those 'happy accidents' become part of the work.  Probably part of the reason I love this work so much, it's a little out of balance like the rest of me.

It's a very loved pumpkin spice candle that lives and rest in my kitchen and has seen some better days.  Partly my fault forgetting it sitting on my toaster-oven while in use.

Technical details: Ink pen on printer paper.

Up Up and Away

Drawn from a phone picture taken of the back of the building in the garden at the consignment shop.  The shop is located on ground level, in an older multiple use building downtown.

Old Nike Sneaker

I loved this work thought in truth was struggling developing an idea for another painting.  There is just something playful about how they developed and informed the page as a work.

Technical details:  Cheap ink pen on printer paper.

Let's Spin and Dance

Sorry guys haven't forgotten about you all.  Picked up another job to pay the bills.  I have also been working creating just having more trouble lately getting my work in a digital format.  Was at the consignment store on first Friday (downtown Greensboro) talking to my boss about possibly entering some works in an up coming show.  

I Have played with creating mobiles before while in school and thought I would give it another shot.  Need some honest critics and feed back on what you all think and if its a project that should be further explored in the future.   

This work is about three feet long and two and half feet at deepest point.  Has lots of movement.  Made of silver twisted industrial wire, white sewing thread and aquarium marbles.
