empty calories

I am plugging along in the studio. I ultimately decided against painting the tie-dye. It wasn't translating in paint. I think I am going to put in some shadows on the flat background.

out and about in O-town

 I saw this one of my walks from my house to campus. I love the unnatural color.
 We have a great BFA show up at Gallery 120 in Meek Hall. It is a group show with Alex Parsons, Thomas Groskoph, Priscilla Hamric, and Jaime Johnson. Here are some highlights.
 Thomas's Ray gun
Jaime's firefly installation with sound, photography, and light.

I want candy!

I am getting back to my studio as school starts to wind down. Can you believe we have one more week of classes?

I am working on a smaller painting (3' x 2'). I am painting candy- gummy centipedes, butterflies, frogs, and twizzler spirals. I bought this candy at Dylan's Candy in NYC this summer. I took a picture of it soon after I got home. I am going to attempt a tie-dye background. stay tuned!

Piped Dreams

I think this is done! Kevin came up with the title, "Piped Dreams." What do you think?

This painting is 4' x 4'. I had so much fun painting the plastic boxes.
