Wax On Wax Off

It seems I am scraping off more wax then I put on this piece. All in the pursuit of getting it right.

I found it interesting that I grabbed this rock to weigh down a piece, seeing as the cut outs are the same shape as the rock. Was it coincidences or being in that meditative state that occurs when making art it was a natural choice? Either way I had to photograph it.

In the Studio


The other day Homayoon asked if he could take some photos of my studio. I told him "at your own risk...it is a mess" I was so pleased with the results, I hope you enjoy them as well.

First Prints From The Mother Lode

I was so excited to open up the prints today. The color was intense, so beautiful. The watercolor paper buckled in a couple places adding some mystery.


Now to start working on them!

The Mother Lode

I was feeling a bit stuck on Saturday, so we decided to go out treasure hunting.  Look what we found. I think I hit the mother lode for rusting!!!!!! Can't wait to get started.



Cooking the rust. The box on top is filled with my other rusty bits to weigh it down.


Tools of the trade.
