A while back one of my good friends asked me to make “something with a Hammerhead shark”.
I think they will be good friends.
I made this over a month ago and as I was framing it last night I realized that, unless you follow me on Instagram, I never posted it anywhere.
There is a lot going on here that I wont get into.
I prefer people to create their own meaning and significance that makes art applicable to their own life.
Cutting out the tiny piece of translucent vellum to make up the veil was a pain in the neck.
This will be for sale along with about sixteen other pieces at the the Waxwing next Friday.
This is the last piece I’m doing for my upcoming show at Waxwing Opening
I was testing it out in different frames last night and the one I decided to go with has a very deep well for the glass. That means that I would be able to do another double pane if I wanted to.
The problem is that it is 11 x 14 and the frame is already very heavy so I’m not sure adding the weight of even more glass is wise.
This is about tooth fairies, and birds…and teeth…
…in the country.
This piece will be an incentive for an upcoming crowdfunding project that I was happy to be asked to participate in.
It is 5″ x 7″ and will be framed, including a wax seal.
I will post details on Facebook as they are presented.
Apparently some rural Wisconsin folks don’t learn from their mistakes of the past.
This spring, for the second time in three years, my neighbor let someone kill a large population of coyotes and a few foxes on his property adjacent to mine.
Fast forward a couple months and, presto, a giant, and virtually uncontrolled, rabbit population.
We planted a full garden this year that was reduced to nothing but onions and thyme in a matter of weeks.
I made this as kind of a joke, but I decided to try out the double pane of glass idea that I used a while back and it worked well.
Now I just need to try it on a large piece.
I made this really quickly on a day where I didn’t have anything else to work on.
It’s supposed to represent three conflicting feelings about the mouse.
I’ve been really busy lately and haven’t been able to keep up with posts on here.
These are all things that I’ve been working on.
A month or so ago, Amity Skateboards contacted me to design a board for them. The parameters were right up my alley, “Do whatever you want.”.
I was having trouble incorporating their old logo of a pine tree into the design, so I made a nautical themed logo.
Luckily they liked it and it will be used on the deck.
The heart with the f-holes was just me messing around with ideas.
The blindfolded bunny holding a plant that grows fire is a study for a larger piece on life and fertility.
I’ll post either that one or more letters next.
There will also be a new postcard collection soon. Some of the cards were misprinted and I’m waiting for the corrected order to arrive.
