If People Had Tails (some do)

This is the first of a new series of illustrations for an upcoming show at Gallery 9 in the Spring. It's in the same genre as the Sketchbook Project posted in the sidebar to the right. That project was a lot of fun for me but a little challenging because I had to stick to the theme "Make Mine a Double". Since this new series is themeless I think it might be more fun because I can go where ever.

Caravaggesque Apples and Pears

The morning after New Year's Eve I was at my friends Danielle and PJ's house waking up for breakfast and noticed this apple and pear setup on their table. The dramatic Caravaggesque lighting reminded me of an apple series I've done with the same extreme light. There may be some earlier postings with pics of the paintings. I had to take a picture if not for reference but for prosperity. Hints of a commission in this.

Cape Wild Things

 Arts Education Initiative

This last Saturday evening at the Cotuit Center for the Arts on Cape Cod was not only fun and engaging but also a "I feel like I'm participating in something significant" time. The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod's themed exhibit, "Wild Things", is presenting extremely talented artist working in a variety of media. Unique is that the exhibit is created with children in mind–the pieces are hung at a child's eye level. During the duration of the show kid's will participate in creative activities and meet the exhibiting artists. Pictured here is one of my favorite artists, Ann Gorbett, who is showing in the event.
