Juicy Fruit

I wanted to post this image because it reminds of Aspic Fantastic. I finished this almost 5 years ago in grad school. It is on display at the house of the president of CGU in Claremont. I would love to see it again, but at least I have the 4" x 5" transparency.

Closer... but I am not sure if it is done

I worked on the background after Thanksgiving. I think I might have a little more work to do. There is some detail work that doesn't show up in the photo. I think this is the only painting I make in this space. 4' x 4' (the size of Aspic Fantastic) is the biggest I can make in this office/ studio.

Aspic Fantastic (in progress)

a couple more days... I have to work on the striped background and the platter. I think I'll be done before Thanksgiving.

Vending Frustration...

This is a print that I made at Penland this summer. I took a class in the new printmaking studio with Georgia Deal. This print uses chine colle and sintra plate. I took the imagery from a vintage yoga book (I love the thrift store!). The background is a zerox transfer on rice paper that I cut out.

Steve Miller from the letterpress class liked the print so we decided to do a collaboration. He printed "trancing" on the bottom. He made the word up....

I never use the figure in painting, but it shows up often in printmaking.

I want to post a painting in progress. I found this image in a vintage cookbook. I chose it for the graphic stripes and the positively gross gelatin in the back. I also liked the color unity with yellow. My working title is "Aspic Fantastic". I have to finish the aspic, the platter, and the background. The painting is upside down because I like to sit on the floor while I am painting. I just flip the painting around to where I am sitting.
