20″x 20″ “Waterview” has been a long time coming. It was commissioned back in February, and by the time I had ordered the framing supplies, my source would be shut down for @ 10 weeks due to the pandemic. But I needn’t have worried, since the creation of the piece itself turned out to takeContinue reading “Waterview. SOLD”
The journey has begun! My first completed piece utilizing the new die cutting machine is called — what else? — “Black Keys.” The artwork field is @ 7″ x 7.5″, with an interior 3.5″-diameter circle. Like a lot of my work, making it happen posed unique procedural challenges once I had the design in mind.Continue reading “Black Keys. $300.”
There’s a lot going on in this piece called “The Sinking.” It’s a feeling. It’s an event. It’s an observation. It’s a situation: an inexorable vortex pulls you down into darkness. Sometimes it takes awhile, closing in with tendrils of realization. I like interpreting a “sinking” in art, but I sure don’t like experiencing it!Continue reading “The Sinking. $150.”
I call this piece “Decem,” the Latin word for the numeral ten. I originally envisioned it as a series of slanted lines against an irregular, organic background. But then my symmetry-loving self thought, “This is only the top half of the piece. It wants to be an “X,” not an “M.” And so I keptContinue reading “Decem. $350.”
THIS JUST IN: I’m honored to be an Ann and Steve Bailey Opportunity Grants award recipient! The funds will go toward the purchase of a digital cutting machine that will revolutionize my process and increase my output. Stay tuned! #psyched #bookart Many thanks go to Liza Zenni, Suzanne Cada, and the Arts and Culture AllianceContinue reading “Floral Rays. $150.”
This photo was created by digitally altering an image that started out as an iPhone screen shot. I was trying to get the feel of those saturated colors I love so well: teal, turquoise, orange and red and yellow and green. All in a nifty collage style that is an option on the Photoshop ExpressContinue reading “I Forget. NOT FOR SALE”
At long last! Setbacks, glitches, technical difficulties, dayjob changes, Rx changes … those challenges and more have all contributed to this piece, and I honor my process. So there. I think artists have different ratios of time/energy that go into the concept and execution of their art. My particular medium weighs heavily on the execution side.Continue reading “Circle Rays on Green. SOLD”
On the other hand, it’s great to get wonky sometimes. With a nice dash of balance, of course! I love the combinations of cool blue, gray, white, and tan. It’ll have a thin black frame around a white mat. Which makes me wonder … will your eyes be more drawn to the black lines, orContinue reading “Spires. $350.”
“Red Gate” by artist Emily Shane, 16″ x 21 1/4″ Sometimes it feels good to get back to the basics of why I started working in this medium. Clean, clearly delineated lines. Symmetry. POP! Ahhhh.
My first attempt at using spines of #RDCB Reader’s Digest Condensed Books. They’re beautiful too! These reminded me of scales on a snake. Someone else said bamboo stalks.
