Here’s a new piece that I started this week:
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.
Finished this over the weekend:
and a detail:
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?
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?
