New Stuff!

New Paintings! Man I had the worse time trying to make the colors seem alright on the web. Stupid web rgb profile, it messes up beautiful work.

"King Fisher and Queen Triggerfish" each 15"x15" oil on board
Play on words, they have crowns of their namesakes... haha. yeah.

"Soy vs Corn" 16"x20" oil on canvas
here's my long winded explaination
This is of two girls, one is born from soy plants and the other corn. This piece is about how both corn and soy are seen in current politics as "green" renewable sources when in realit they are both very harmful to the environment. Ethanol is made from corn but to create it is very pollutant and it isn't as efficient as gasoline which means you'd have to fill your tank more and at a higher price. Now with the corn prices going up (making food costs soar) farmers who use to farm soy now grow corn. Farmers in Brazil are now growing more soy to keep with the demands and cutting down the rainforest at the fastest rate ever.

So you see they supposedly are "good" but are tied together in a harmful consequence to the earth. That is why their braided together hair turns to their hands because in our hands we are creating destruction. This is a ery "Ohio" piece for me considering soy and corn are the main cash crops of the state.

I'm off my soap box now.

This weekend has been quite refreshing i'm finally feeling calm and good. here's some stuff.

My wall, got my giraffe painting back today from the gallery, and my lovely king and queen need to be framed. And temporarily i get to stare at joe schlauds wonderful painting of i'm pretty sure it's his girlfriend (he's going to pick it up from me when he comes to the d from lansing... so soon it'll be gone... how sad) and my wonderful beaver and capybara prints by jeff nolan. they need frames... i love everybody's art and need to get prints from folks!
My feet.
Munny and tiny painting, i'm trying a new technique on the painting where i start in greyscale then glaze color ontop like Vermeer.
Painting on the easel now... and yes i'm using my bed for a makeshift desk, it works.

I'm finally coming down from my cold and my worrying about the end of the semester... so now i can think clearly.

Here are some of my screen prints I've done!
this one is just one color I did, i did the same print on 4 different colors of paper. this project was creating a screen then on the second color change the pre-existing screen. the colors are pink with transparent silver on top (it looks greyish purple here but it really does sparkle!)

this is the poster for this semesters potluck!! the colors are way off so i need to play with it. the colors on the actual print didn't turn out quite like i wanted them to, they dried much darker than i thought and you can't really read the writing, but oh well learning experience. this was a four screen print, first blue, then yellow then pink and the line work was a gradient.

Walt Disney

"Landscapes of great wonder and beauty lie under our feet and all around us. They are discovered in tunnels in the ground, the heart of flowers, the hollows of trees, fresh-water ponds, seaweed jungles between tides, and even drops of water.

Life in these hidden worlds is more startling in reality than anything we can imagine. How could this earth of ours, which is only a speck in the heavens, have so much variety of life, so many curious and exciting creatures?”

—Walt Disney (1901-1966)
