"the painted veil"

ahhh...what a wonderful book. Just what I needed right now. The painted veil is written by the talented W. Somerset Maugham, published in 1925, part of the lost generation's need to find the meaning of life and escaping their ego from the western perspective. I love each of his characters, I had to bring them to life in my vision. So from my sketchbook to you, here they are.

cutting board blues, I am just another surface to be used

This project I started while I was still in school, and two cutting boards seemed lonely, so I created one more for the series.
printmaking class starts tonight! yes. yes. yes.

the Clinton "olde home day" juried art show

While I didnt walk away with a prize or title from this juried show, I was still so happy to have my art in one of my favorite museums, the Museum of Russian Icons. It has always been a vital source of inspiration, I can already feel the surge of creativity. (the picture with the woman falling to hell isnt mine, I just really liked this icon, fyi)

still a work in progress

Im scratching the bottom of the barrel in terms of ideas...I basically pick two random words and make it into an illustration. haha. This one still needs work, "the butterfly and the beekeeper", but I'd figure I'd post it anyway
