Rain Barrels such as the one pictured can be found @ EcoWise
These two pieces are going to be shown in a juried exhibition in Bend, Oregon at Atelier 6000, through the month of February! Their show Survey Charts, Maps, Ledgers, Navigation, is a great fit for my new series of paintings following the last voyage of the Whale Ship Essex.
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!
