This Nupastel drawing was done on black paper at Starbucks on an outdoor table while I was having my Friday evening iced coffee. I drew it as if I had caught the action as the photographer had taken a photo at that instant with a strobe.
I built this horse head complete with ears of dual focus and star strip snip (face markings).
This is an archive from July 28 which I forgot to post:
Tonight we had a great project in C3 with visiting artist Margaret Meehan, creating soft sculptures with cheap teddy bears. I created this one which I called horse heaven based on a little horse angel l found in the stuffing of the soft toy.

This Thursday in our C3 Artist Encounter at the DMA we created a yarn installation in the C3 Gallery and then worked on drawings on Tracing Paper using colored pencils. I took my two best home and created a mixed media collage/Acrylic painting.

Tuesday night was quite stormy. With such frequent lightning I set my camera real slow (30sec) and aperture around f8 and got these photos by just clicking and letting the lightning make the photo - Natural Flash Photography

This is a study in 8x10 in Open Acrylic of a Stormy Sky at sunset. I am not sure If I am finished with it yet, I might add a foreground horizon feature. I was trying to take a cloud/landscape and make it in sort of a style reminiscent of a Rothko color field painting.
Update: This is a newer image after minor glazing changes.

For the last month I have been thinking about an idea for painting. I had remembered a transparency I had taken in the late 70's and scanned into my computer late last year.
Here a graphite and Graphite/Watercolor pencil sketch I did Thursday afternoon.
Today I bought a 1/2 inch birch plywood panel and had cut into 3 pieces, one fitting a frame I already had. I then sanded and applied the first coat of gesso. A couple more and I will be ready to paint on it. I am still working on an idea on how I want this to go.
