its like an online art journal with lots of pictures
I have medium-to-big plans for next year & if experience teaches me one thing, its that all the fucking detail heavy work is set to continue & acceptance is the key to all my problems. Good to know that, going forward.
Most of November was getting things ready for my Christmas pop-up shop; I worked full days, making and making but even so I didn’t really get there, or not as much there as I would’ve liked to. Mostly because of Being a Woman.
Mirrored, compressed landscape & batik design. Acrylic, pastels, oil varnish, gold mica pigment on canvas.
Diptych, overall dimensions 1110x1820 mm (36x88 inches)
Its taken me a whole month to not get much further along with the diptych. God is sending me opportunities to practice acceptance.
Intense work through August, finishing the big diptych OR SO I THOUGHT
I DIG making grand landscapes.
"It is ‘the beautiful sorrow of things’, sunt lacrimae rerum; there are tears in everything, [he] said, not mournfully nor hopelessly but as a paradoxical statement about the beauty of the world”
Diptych 20x36" overall. Oil paint, mica pigment on gold metal leaf on gesso board
Should have left well enough alone

I'm currently engaged in commissioned work for a luxury hotel - at 28 pieces its the biggest commission I've ever know - and I'm not at liberty to share any images of it. However, as you may surmise, there is a lull in artwork proceedings at the moment, hence photoshop bonanza of step by steps pics following the making of Puppy's new couch step! Time wasting!
I've gilded a lot of surfaces over the decades and lace is one of them, but I've never made a garment with it before.
Much work that I cant share. The commission I'm undertaking is by far the biggest I've ever done, with the most restrictive contract I've ever signed. So I cant share progress pics but let me assure you, I'm artworking long and many days
Sometimes a sculpture is just a sculpture.
Various samplings for commissions/proposals; photoshop sketches; fabric print design sketches and...
And I thought I'd been quiet this month
DREAM REALISED: I've been wanting to try some of my artwork images through digital fabric printing technologies for a long time and now I have and its thrilling!
End of year wrap up...well everyone else is doing it, so heres some of MY favorite 2015 pics:
I've never been entirely comfortable describing myself as an artist, such a subjective, arbitrary term
