“Demeter’s Harvest”- Thanksgiving Inspired.

As the leaves turn to a warm color palette, and the fall breeze sneaks by, the autumn bounty is ready to be harvested just before the winter .  It is a time of thanks and appreciation.  This day means different things for everyone.  A day most cultures observe at one point, it’s a celebration of…

Countdown to Halloween: 7 Days To Go!

Another week down, another to go. My, how this month is skipping by. Halloween is all about the dead. Either they are are being honored or they have risen up to run amok.    If haunted houses are not aplenty in your area then tip-toeing past gravestones is the sure adventure on All Hallow’s Eve….

Countdown to Halloween: 14 Days To Go!

Another week and only 14 days to go.    Nothing says Halloween like a good old witch.  Pale green skin, exaggerated nose accessorized by a hairy wort, pointy brimmed hat, completed with a cackle.  Nothing short of a caricature, I assure you. I once was directed  to a book titled, “Juniper” by Monica Furlong by an acquaintance…

Countdown to Halloween: 21 Days To Go!

Welcome to the third post and second installment of “Countdown to Halloween” with 21 days to go.  The first installment I delved into spiders, the creepy crawlies of Halloween, and did a graphic art piece that strung twisted vines to form a spider. As you know every week my artwork will focus a bit on the Halloween Spirit, and I…

The Countdown Begins: 30 Days Til Halloween…

Now it begins.  The Pumpkin carving, creepy costume, apple bobbing, time of the year where kids have a good excuse to gorge on candy, and adults get to act like puberty never set in.  A time where cosplay isn’t just for nerds, pranks can freak the daylights out of total strangers, and the law enforcement…

Take-A-Peek-See: In the process of a still-life “Tattered”

Welcome to yet another take-a-peek-see post.  By now you are probably wondering is I’ll ever reveal the completed piece, or if I enjoy teasing you, or maybe I just like making promises I don’t intend to keep.  Most artists like to work on numerous projects at a time, especially if they are working with a medium that…

Take-A-Peek-See: In the process of “untitled”

Welcome to another “Take-A-Peek-See” post.  While I was perusing pinterest, I came across a texture that inspired me to do this painting.  It will be a contemporary piece inspired by texture and form. The medium of choice is acrylic, due to it’s fast drying applications.  In order to get “clean” lines I needed something less…

Take-A-Peek-See: In the process of “The Alleyway”

Paintings can take time to create, so these little posts will let you “take a peek see” at some of these paintings in the process.  The above snap shot is of “The Alleyway”.  I wanted to do an architectural piece, with a lightly old feel to it.  This is a play on perspective, with a…
