This piece is ready to be shipped.  "Pine Clad Hills" title inspired by the Newfoundland Anthem.  We still have lots of hills.  (This stands about 9 1/2' high)

Making chimneys.  Making these houses is taking more time than I thought.

Nothing like a grant and a few shows in the works to get the studio buzzing.  I always envy the artists who have such neat studio spaces.  How do they do that?

Still experimenting with some ideas.  Kind of fun but not getting the clarity of direction yet.

Playing around in the studio these days.  Interesting results so far.  This one is about 12" Square to the edges.

Okay, here is the finished piece you can see me working on in my previous post.   I am calling it "Side Stroke".  30"X 60"  (76cm X 152cm)  This view is from below, the head, in case you are wondering is above the water.

Show coming up at Christina Parker Gallery (October 4th 2013)  so I am trying to get a few more pieces done before then.  Here I am preparing the background and then the second image I am preparing the positive for the print.  Basically painting black paint with a broom onto plastic.

Well after some expensive learning experiences this one is finally done.  Treading.  Not sinking, not swimming.

Kind of a dance. 

The images posted here show what came out of the work seen on the previous post.  Yes it is the same work that progressed to this stage.  Finished now.   40" X  60"    Check my post from Friday, 28 September 2012.  There you have some of the beginning stages.

Most recent table top studio shot of a work in progress.  Long ways to go but I like these at this stage too.

Okay.  This is a studio view of one the three finished pieces.  Along with a detail below.  
The numbers come from the Stock index published daily in the business section of the local newspaper.   


Saturday 23 March 2013

Still a work in progress, I hope to get these done in the next week. Check out the previous posting (Scroll down.)     These are the same pieces brushed over with numbers printed over top.  Still looks good.  I always hate to move on to the next stage but I will.  (It is good to be back on track with this project) Note: Ultimately the green masking taped edges will come off.
