The painting above is an excerpt from a classical painting. I've forgotten the source. It was part of The 50 Project, for awhile during the project I was taking portions of paintings done by others and focusing in on aspects of the paintings.

This is a drawing based on a collage I did. I obsessively collect images, in fact, my filing drawer is full and is literally overflowing.. I'm not sure if I should buy another filing drawer or of I should sort through my collection of scraps and, uh, "scrap" some of the images. I love collage, the way a new world is created out of seemingly unrelated bits of paper. Collage is amusing to no end, really. I think the sources for the images used were an old 50's magazine article about the last day of school, some medical supply catalogs, and Crap Hound #5, Hands, Hearts, Eyes.

My friend Shannon and I were talking about starting blogs in honor of our acceptance into an intentional creative’s community housed in a redeveloped bricker from the early 20th century. It was previously used as a care home for the elderly.. ..neat vibe. I’m sure some strange adventures are underway for all of us participating in this venture. This post may be a little premature as we do not actually move in until August but I thought I’d get going on the blog…

To Be Determined is one of the paintings I did this year during a three month course titled The 50 Project. The course is a post in and of its own! The instructor of the class bought this piece. When I ran into him and his lady friend at a benefit auction she exclaimed, “We call it Bitches Behind Bars!” I thought that was hilarious.
