day of birth

Here’s a new piece that I started this week:

Hill - Progress

It’s also my birthday. I am a twin, so it’s his birthday too. Happy birthday, brother Barnes! The day has started out swimmingly with a midnight phone call from one of my very best friends.

Tonight all I want to do is relax at home and work on some art. Tomorrow party.


over the weekend

Finished this over the weekend:

Buried - raw edge

Buried - cropped

and a detail:

Detail - Buried

My original plan was to have a cropped, clean edge on this image. After doing that, I find I like the raw edges much more. What do you think?

heerrooo, fall

Well, I went away for two weeks and came back to the beginning of fall in Baltimore.

The Vermont Studio Center was beautiful and secluded and exactly what I needed.  I was able to indulge my workaholic tendencies and be in the studio all day, everyday. I also went running, which was INSANE.  You see, Johnson, Vermont is in a valley.  The only place to run is up.  I ran so many hills!  I did a 9mile run that had multiple half-mile hills tacked on to it.  Beautiful scenery, but a frustrating run.

A few choice pictures.  (You can see more on my Flickr)

Also, remember when I posted about the Bumbershoot Arts and Music Festival?  Installed pieces below.  I am really pleased with how they turned out!

I was feeling renewed to be able to have these couple weeks of focus, in addition to return to Baltimore with all the freelance stuff taken care of.  The Friday before I left Vermont, however, I got an email about a project that had never been finished and now needs to be worked on.  Guess that’s the way it goes, eh?
