My Latest Creations

This isn't the best picture, taken from my phone, but you can get an idea of what my latest endeavor has been. There is a show coming up through Couchfire Collective being held at the Ohio Art League called "Touchy Feely". What better use for these old used glove molds that I had sitting around! My son said they looked like gypsy hands and I think I may go with that for a title for the collection. "Gypsy Hands" -- I like it.

I really enjoyed making these. The only thing left to do is attach a wood base to the bottom to give them some stability and I think they are ready for delivery next Saturday. It's a three day show and hopefully the weather clears up and the roads get cleared so that people can get there!

That's all for today. And be careful out there for those of you in the winter storm areas!

Who Am I?

Well, this is my first blog post and sometimes I feel like I'm way behind the times. I'm not the best writer but I'm doing this because I follow a lot of blogs and enjoy connecting with people and watching as they create their art and I hope you will enjoy following my artistic life as well. I am a visual artist creating contemporary modern abstract acrylic paintings and also some mixed media and collage work.

My plan as I go along is to post some step by step posts of my creative process, some posts about my studio, my dog, Gizmo, some techniques I have learned and some other fun day to day stuff. I really am looking forward to making some new friends with this blogging format. I hope you enjoy following me!

Above are some pictures of some recent work. Please feel free to comment!!!
