It has been a busy year of teaching, working, and enjoying the outdoors of Austin. I’ve been teaching classes for the Austin Museum of Art in Old Masters Painting, Portfolio Prep, Teen Painting and Intro. Encaustic.  Click this link to see a student portfolio  of my teen classes.

Currently, I have a few drawings and paintings which I am working on. They are all long term projects which I’ve been adding layers to bit by bit since the end of 2010; a series of drawings soon to become part of an elaborate encaustic painting on a long sculpted sheet of metal; other drawings soon to be layered in encaustic and glazed over. The details below are from an oil painting I have been building up using old masters techniques for the last 10 months.

My latest projects:

  • A handmade canoe paddle to enjoy all the beautiful waterways of Texas Hill Country. Made of epoxy laminated Ash and Spanish Cedar, the finished product will be glassed for strength and to bring out the natural character in the wood.

  • A new painting which draws from Turner and Albert Pinkham Ryder. I am continuing to expand on my narratives about exploration and the sea while pushing ideas about interdisciplinary mediums. This paper on panel piece will have many different layers from a grisaille underpainting, oil painting surface, encaustic, printmaking techniques and many glazes both encaustic and old master.

Keep an eye on later posts to see how they progress!
