So i have the opportunity to do something new. A mural. For a brewery in standale, mi. It is a learning curve, but this is good thing for an artist to always experience. To become complaiscent is to become weak and stunted in ones growth. I will say since dedicating myself to 2d art, the world seems to be opening up a bit more for opportunities. Met some lovely locals too. And the local meijers. Wowza.

My first ever award for my first outing as a painter. The universe must be telling me something... it was a beautiful show and day.

so, i have been carving into linos for the past two weeks in addition to teaching at an art camp. it was clear to me when i finished the second, this needed to be displayed as a trio. so, what should i do? a sunflower! viola! this is just a preliminary print to see how the carving went before i would do the final printing and maybe add some faint color.

I also finished this landscape painting of a field where the hay had been recently cut against a brooding sky of clouds. it was a frustrating piece because with pastels, you cannot mix your colours like paint, but overlap them in a way to create the illusion of the colours you want. i really love the trees though.

This is a departure from the usual work that i do and while i wanted to tear my hair out with her face, it was good for the brain. One should always strive to push one's comfort zone. This is the Odyssey. Off to a group show tomorrow.
