Some Landscape action

These are two oil paintings I did a few weeks back that I finally remembered to photograph. They are part of an ongoing series/idea of slightly abstracted clouds and landscapes in unusual formats. I plan on selling them at the CCAD student sale this year, along with a whole bunch of other goodies. These are both 12" x 24". Hope yalls like them because I plan on making a whole bunch of them.

Arghh he's a Salty Dog

In my illustration seminar class we had a project last week where we were given two words thursday night and had to have a finished piece done the next day. As terrible as that may sound I think it was one of my favorite assignments of the year so far, and I actually like the final piece. My words were salty dog, hope you enjoy it. Arg.

More Fishies? yup

Heres some color versions of those fishies for my children's book, the same sketches form before just with some photoshop colors over them. Let me know what you think, too bright? Too ridiculous? Not ridiculous enough? Which ones your favorite?

I think glass blowing may be my favorite class of the semester so far, it's something about learning a brand new way of making art that is really fun for me. These are a couple things we've made in the past few weeks, some bubbles with decorations on the outside, and a fishy. This week we made a cup, but I havn't been able to photograph it yet, plus cups are really hard and it didn't come out so hot. I'm hoping that we keep on making really cool stuff and I want to take it again next semester, so I'm going to keep updating on how the glassblowing is going.

Mr Pecos Bill

So this is was the first piece of the year we finished in C F Payne's class. My assignment was to do something with a tall tale, so I went with Pecos Bill. I also really wanted to do something with a limited palette so I decided one of those classic scenes of a cowboy by the fire would work real nice. It not quite done yet but its starting to get there. Also a little known fact about Pecos Bill, he made scorpions AND tarantulas, impressive.
