Confession: I don’t have a smartphone or anything even approaching it. But I have a digital camera collection and I do have an instagram account and following people there has inspired me to share more of my photos. I’m going to start a photography section here on my site too, stay tuned!

Sketch for a New Painting

Here’s what I’m working on now. It’s a wood panel, 40 inches x 16.5 inches. You can see the light sketch I’ve drawn in, using an (unpublished) collage I made on a small piece of packaging tape as my reference. There’s no title yet but I’m thinking of it as “Who 64″ so far.

PS Sued/Pens – An Old/New Piece in Progress

Sorting through the last few unopened boxes packed when I moved from Colorado to New York in 2012, I found this piece I was working on in the mid 2000′s. It’s called PS Sued/Pens because of the text it features. It’s nearly done, I’m just deciding how I’d like to display it as a finished work. I hope to post an update about that very soon! In the meantime, check out these two pictures.

Work in Progress – Calendar Collaboration with Angela Oaks

Here is the latest progress on a collaborative piece my friend artist Angela Oaks and I are working on together. This is a found fabric calendar we’ve been painting, that has been cut up and sewn back together and now, I think, has potential to be viewed from either side. The “front” and the “flip” side are pictured below, and if you scroll to the third image, you will see what it looked like before it was cut up.

Mirror Numbers – Collaboration in Progress

Angela Oaks and I have been collaborating on a series of paintings on found fabric samples. Each swatch features a mirrored depiction of a number as its starting point. Here’s an overview of all 8 of the pieces in their current state. The number 6 (or 9?) Mirror # 6: Petrol is complete; the others are in progress and are really coming along, as you can see in these latest pictures. (Click each image to see it larger.)

Updates from my studio

As you can see from my art studio selfie, I’m happy to update you with photos my work in progress… First, here’s a painting I started just a few sessions ago. It’s not yet titled, is on canvas and I must say is going great so far! I really like how their faces are turning out. Next, there’s an easel shot and a close-up of Uinformation. That one’s acrylic on wood panel and it’s really getting close to its finished state. I’m enjoying scratching into the wood with some of my old printmaking tools to sharpen up some details. I’ve also included a casual shot of a painting with twin faces, which I’ve recently decided to title Ore. Further down you’ll see the latest update to the mirrored numbers series I’ve been collaborating on with my friend artist Angela Oaks. This is #4 in the series and it’s in progress.
