Red Wine on Linen

One of my assignments in one of my courses this summer was to choose a nontraditional medium and/or substrate and create something with it.
I have been wanting to paint with red wine for awhile so now was my opportunity.
I found some linen napkins and a bottle of shiraz and created the above portrait.

Here is what the full napkin looks like:

It is 15x23.5"
The flower was already stitched on the napkin.

I enjoyed doing it so much, I decided to try just a little painting on watercolor paper
Wine Grapes No. 1

There is definitely more control on the paper.

Glacial Creation

Glacial Creation
Digital Photography

School has finally come to an end for now. It was an intense and wonderful 6 weeks of expanding my creative horizons. One more summer and I will have my Masters of Art Education. Woohoo!
Except I do have to complete my thesis within a year.

For now it is back to real life and reconnecting with all of you.

Glacial Creation is another digital photograph that I did in my digital arts class.
I took the same photograph from Galaxy Soup and change it to a different era.
I even learned how to animate in Photoshop.
Very cool stuff.
Now how can I fit this new knowledge into my current crazy life?

The Piano Lesson

The Piano Lesson

A few weeks ago I taught a portrait workshop. The Piano Lesson is the painting that I demonstrated to the class. I was hoping to get it finished before now but got so excited with the digital studio that I lost myself in there for awhile. This past week I have worked hard at getting my other work done. 
However, the digital is not gone for good.
It will return.

Dinner With The In-Laws

Dinner with the In-Laws
Digital Photograph

"This is no ordinary apple. It's a magic wishing apple. . . Take one bite and all your dreams will come true."
-Queen from Snow White

This is another image I created in my Photoshop class. 
Perhaps it is playing to my darker side but I love fairy tales.
And sometimes what we think is a dream come true isn't at all.
On this welcoming table of desserts, I have chosen to represent the poisonous apples in various ways as well as some bitter fruit.
 The guillotine represents impending doom.
