Working on it!

Ok I have been pretty busy in the last month and a half.  I have finished 3 pieces and started another. "Collector" and "Old Growth" I finished during my last time at home from work.  I donated "Old Growth" to KAKM channel 7 public TV for an auction to help raise support for that station and public radio.  I am pretty happy with piece overall.  It has a feel of tradition and wisdom that make the mask intense.  I put a little surprise in the tree tops to give the mask a little of a playful side.  The other piece, "Collector", is a great example of where I would like my art to be going.  I was able to mix material and create an Asymetrical disign that is appealing to the eye and has a balance.  I hope to expand on the Asymetry and mixed materials. 

I am working on this new piece that will have many new elements to the creation.  I have been looking into using more of a diverse collection of material.  One idea for a material is wax.  I would like to use some wax on this new piece in some areas to create a texture.  I will also be toying with coloring the wax to add some depth and dimension to my work.  I will be doing some sewing on this piece. I have used textiles before on "Goose" but I will have to do some serious sewing to create some shape and clean lines on this piece. 

This next month I will be trying to get this piece done and start another.  If I can do that then I will see this month as a success.  I have been toying with taking a welding class for expasion of my work materials. In the future I would also like to use glass in a more organic setting.  This will be a little more difficult but with some training and practice I think I will be able to create something great. 

Thanks for all your support and interst in my work.  If you have any questions please email me or comment on the blog.   I will be updating more regularly now that I have a streamlined set up.
