Here’s the piece I finished this morning. I’m planning on working on a series of scenes around town which I’ll post as I finish each one.

The portrait is complete! Of course there are a few areas that I’d like to fix, but I think I’m pretty much done with this one. I’ll probably return to it in a few weeks when I can approach it with a more critical eye.

More to come next week, since, well, I’ll be busy this weekend and won’t have much time to make art.

Happy 4th of July!

As We Are: The Enduring Nude

Today I heard back from the Del Ray Artisans’ juried exhibition that I entered. My gestural drawing, “Dancing in the Nude,” was chosen by the juror and will be on display at the Nicholas Colasanto Center. It will be open from July 3rd to July 26th.

Progress Picture #1: Figure Seated by the Counter

I’ve decided to work on another portrait series and this is what I have so far with the first piece. This one is about 1/3 finished–it’s a lot bigger than the other collages I’ve posted below (18″x24″) and thus it takes a little bit longer to complete. Hopefully it’ll be done sometime later this week, unless I get super busy at work.

I finished this a couple of days ago but didn’t have a chance to take pictures of it until today. This is my first attempt at doing a landscape collage. I think I’ll work on a few more landscape collages–I like the idea of broadening my range of subject matter.

Here’s the dachshund collage that I finished the other day. I also did a landscape piece today that I’ll post later this week or weekend–whenever I get a chance to take pictures of it.

Daffodils and Green Coffee Cup

Here are the last two collages I’ve completed. I’ve just begun another dachshund collage. I think I’ll try to make another dachshund collage where the dog is an abnormal color.

I also recently joined the Art League and renewed my membership with the Del Ray Artisans. The Del Ray Artisans are about to have another juried exhibition, this one will be called “The Enduring Nude.” I think I’ll frame a sketch I did during one of my life drawing classes with them and enter it.

I’ve decided to work on a coffee cup series as well as I get prepared for Art on the Avenue (in hopes that I’ll get into it). This is the first one I’ve completed and I’m currently working on another one.
