It has been awhile since I added new work. In November and December I worked on smaller pieces in preparation for holiday shows at the studio. Now it is almost January and it will be challenging to work after school starts back up. I have two new pieces that are almost finished (sunset/sunrise) but inContinue reading “New work on paper”
This painting connects to my work with the train yard image but is much more paired down in style and color.
As I create more work I realize that I often seek to organize work into geometric shapes or look for images that have that geometry. In these works I stuck with the square or rectangle and sought to try different ways to resolve space, color and composition.
Just a sliver of a picture.
I’m working on a painting of the view outside the studio of the train yard. It’s an ever-changing scene, at least from one day to the next and often within hours. Trains are coming and going. The Marta train goes by on the overhead track every 20 minutes or so. This is a cropped versionContinue reading “Train Yard One”
I am now part of the Urban Art Collective studio in Chamblee as of May 26. I got busy working on a drawing I started when studying at SAIC. The space is light filled and conducive to working. It feels really good to have space and time to create.
I created this image using DrawPad and Inspire Pro on the ipad. I had the option of creating a video of the image as it was being created.

I remember it in my Grandmother’s house and I thought it was very special when I was a child. When I inherited it I decided it was ratherContinue reading “Grandmother’s Lamp”
I did this drawing early one morning from the dock at my brother in law’s lake house at Lake Jackson. I found it recently and was surprised I made it three years ago. Time just goes by so fast. This drawing is more detailed than I usually do. I remember enjoying the quiet peaceful timeContinue reading “Lake Jackson, Georgia”
I’m trying to find time to draw and the quickest thing is to find areas close to home that interest me. I did the first drawing using graphite and the second with fine point marker. This tree which might be a cedar? is very delicate. I remember when the neighbors planted this tree. I’ve alwaysContinue reading “Sketching in my neighborhood”
I’m really excited about the artwork my students are doing. I will try to update this post with work as it comes along.
I’m back teaching high school art. I had students create a sculpture using spaghetti and marshmallows. It is fun to see students working together and getting to know each other a little. I require the students to work in groups of three. They have a time limit and the goal is to create a free-standingContinue reading “Spaghetti Challenge”
