Finding renewed inspiration

October 6, 2021 On January 1, 2014, I decided to put down my paint brushes and focus solely on sculpting. I felt that as much as I wanted to paint, sculpture was more widely appreciated than two dimentional art. I believed that “people” engaged with sculpture in a more significant way than paintings, so theContinue reading “Finding renewed inspiration”

Return of the blog

September 2, 2021 So it’s been six months since I last posted. I had set aside the Cheshire cat in order to get another project done in time for an event (rescheduled twice) that I had already committed to, prior to the Covid restrictions. I’ll save that for another post. Also, in the past sixContinue reading “Return of the blog”

Preparing for Illuxcon 2020, virtually.

For the past month I have been going through the process of photographing some old pieces and more recent work in preparation for the upcoming Illuxcon that will be, for the first time, completely virtual due to the pandemic restrictions on public indoor gatherings.

Getting a little “Heisenberg” or maybe “Rauschenberg”

April 29, 2020 Copper sulfate looks remarkably like the crystal blue meth in Breaking Bad. Taking some inspiration from Robert Rauschenberg, I have delved into the world of electroforming. Not that Rauschenberg did electroforming, but he was always looking to incorporate new processes and new materials, adding to the vocabulary in his body of work. Continue reading “Getting a little “Heisenberg” or maybe “Rauschenberg””

Stay home, stay creative, stay positive

April 9, 2020 Here’s another finished piece, “American West.”  I still have a lot more in progress but I’m discovering the challenge of not being able to run to the store and grab supplies or materials that I would prefer to use.  In any event, I’m trying to work with what I have but thatContinue reading “Stay home, stay creative, stay positive”

Starting and finishing

April 3, 2020 While I currently have five ongoing pieces, I managed to finish one this morning. That gave me a reason to start another. The finished piece incoporates a couple of castings from a few years back. I was never really happy with the original sculpting, but at the time, I was eager toContinue reading “Starting and finishing”
