As a member of Lakewood Artist Guild I received the opportunity to hang 8 of my largest, most creative paintings in the conference room at El Dorado Library in Long Beach CA. If you have the opportunity to stop in between February and end of May 2015, please do! (All pieces are for sale).
This is my latest painting, finished 11/19/13 I loved the composition that the telephone wires created. I also was fascinated with the numerous birds that were perched on every surface. The original is 11×16, making each bird aprox 1/2″ but I attempted to make each one individual and pack on as much detail as I could.
This is my second sculpture/painting. “Warts and All” (31×27″) is similar to “Frog Eye” but with the 3-D element of “Charming” I used Magi-sculpt and sand to create the textures and the dome shape of the eye. Then I used metallic paint on the body and a combination of metallic paint and gold-leaf on the eye. A layer of high gloss acrylic gel medium on the eye was my final touch.
This is a colored pencil drawing of a water fountain at the state fairgrounds in Missouri. I was fascinated and challenged by the detail and texture of the rock vrs. chrome.
