New Painting of a Luna Moth
Throw Back Thursday

I have been feeling under the weather, so, regretfully, I have not been in the studio in a while. I hope to be in the studio soon. I have a lot of new work in my head, I just need to get my hands dirty. I thought I would share some oldies with you in the mean time. Tell me what you think.

Butterfly Waltz / My First Video

This was originally posted in 2017

This is my first video! This painting was made with ink, salt, alum, and silver leaf. I love the process of making these pieces, so this is my attempt to share my love of the process. The song is Waltz in A minor by Chopin, performed by Aya Higuchi. It is a special song to me because Chopin is my favorite composer, and I have performed this song at several performances (back in the day). Thank you for viewing. Please note, this artwork has sold. 

A skull and a beetle

Here are a few of my new pieces that are waiting to get framed. We cut the maple, now we just have to assemble, varnish, and purchase the glass. It's a long process from start to finish, but at least it is rewarding. 

I have been experimenting with alternative materials, and different subject matter. I am breaking from my theme, hoping it will come full circle in the end. I have a lot of ideas but I am still in the phase were I am figuring out how to execute them. It's intimating and exciting. I hope to take some in-progress shots soon. I am also working on a video. 

Thank you, as always.

A few photos from my newest series

I am really happy with how these turned out. The gilding (silver, gold, and copper leaf) is incredibly hard to capture in a photograph, and these photos do not do any of the pieces justice--but at least you can get an idea. The paintings are rather intricate, and fun to look at up close. The gilding pops from far away, and during different times of day. I love that an artwork can change with time. That seems to be a big part of what I am interested in.
