Greetings from Las Vegas Photos

In case you missed “Greetings from Las Vegas” at Gateway early December 2013. I posting some images of my room. I made bedsheets out of recycled plastic bags that I ironed the bags together and painted love letters on them. The television had hand-drawn animation playing on the old television.

Invention of Style, part 2

THE EXERCISE: The core

Work studies and experiments, Model: Heather and Husband.

The life work is based on live models, who are often in movement rather than a stationary pose.  These drawings are the exercises or experiments to my later work.  This work helps me problem-solve my use of loose materials such as graphite, dyes and paints. These exercises are the core, or foundation, of my work.  Without my studies from life, emotion and movement I wouldn’t have a finished piece.
