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!

I’ve been busy making work at the TFAA (Virginia studio), having a blast and putting in long hours. I just hung work at the DCAC for their Wallmountables show. The opening was Friday and the show was a lot of fun to see. Artists from all across the spectrum showed their work (Four year olds to local emerging artists to the pros). I also ran into an old friend Kim Burke. She is part of a DC art collective that runs an blog Bored of Trade and also showed one of her new sculptures. Below are some shots and some new works both finished and in progress.
To day is a pool and BBQ day, tomorrow….back to the studio for another week of art making! More posts of new work to come! Enjoy the week and be sure to check out The Mountain and the Sea for their DEFY monday post!
