Great on the shading and highlighting - you have a very firm grasp of dimension.

I have no class, but that shouldn't come as a surprise to many around here.

A couple of wood burnings (pyrography) I’ve done today. Working on some Christmas gifts. ✌🏻

LOVE pyrography and those are beautiful! The butterfly almost looks 3-D from the perspective.  Andiew, very nice control of the graphic there! I agree with Johnny on depth comprehension. The painting is Frida Khalo'esque.  

The above is a biggie entitled The Reader:  4' x 6' oil and sumi ink on canvas commissioned by the director of our local library.  The colors match her handmade quilt.

Thanks, butters. Actually, this was for her home ( either bedroom or office - I can't remember ). However, the county purchased four pieces from a photography series/exhibition for permanent display in the library.  

Above are two of the pieces hung perfectly beside a sculpture.  They're from an exhibition entitled "Not an Exit".  I photographed abandoned mills in the county - then scoured Lewis Hines photos of child labor in the 30's, and actually discovered he'd been to that very county and photographed kids in those very mills.  So I superimposed the images of the children onto the mills they'd actually worked at 80-100 years ago.  

I have very few pieces of that exhibit left - it all scattered to the wind when purchased by various cities, offices, and homes.  

These are 18 x 24 gallery wrapped canvas - so that should give you an idea of how big the sculpture is.

artists light the world, in all their forms

i really like the pictures, not so keen on the sculpture but maybe i'd prefer it in the flesh. i'm more a wood/glass kind of person than galvanized metal. still, did you hear about the banana that--duct-taped to a wall--fetched $120,000 at Miami's Art Basel? now to me, that's just nuts.
