After a day of teaching the students in my art class had to clean up. We had used acrylic paints, and the brushes and other various tools had to be washed so that we could be ready for the next day. In the sink, a beautiful array of colors from the remaining pigments was in […]
While helping a student achieve an aged look on a poster project I came upon this technique which I have never seen before (however, I don’t think it’s new). By using a stencil and heat gun I was able to work with the tonality of the burn and at the same time control its development. […]
I just finished reading a great explanation of the history behind Gustav Klimts Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. I would highly recommend this book if you have an interest in art history or just juicy explanations of the world that influences art. This book was a true eye opener and only reaffirms my interest in visiting […]
Ive been working on some paint lately and really like the progression of paint. Inspiration is a funny thing. I believe that one can look for it, hope for it, but to wait for it is like waiting for rainbows to appear from where you are sitting. I really like the color play in this […]

By using safety goggles as a base, well they are actually safety glasses of the disposable kind, I was able to build up this example of a mask for my students. It is important to think of alternatives and to use what one has at hand. The mechanical department at the school had plenty and […]
Ive created this forum to allow others to see the asthetics that I enjoy in art. I would love to hear from you if you have any artistic needs or are just interested in my art! Its been a productive summer. Ive finally had the chance to update my website, beginning on the journey of […]
