SMALL WORKS ACCEPTED

As I previously mentioned, I spent a great deal of time developing a presentation that I like for my small paintings. The angle of the photo above depicts the layering I used. Though it took a few twists and turns,

ANTIBODY…finished

ANTIBODY is the second smaller piece in the COVID series. It is the same size as MUTATION and plays quite well with it…a purposeful consideration. I discovered this canvas when I was “rearranging” my supply closet…I can’t say cleaning out…just

ISOLATION…finished

This piece is finally complete as part of the Covid series. I was having a difficult time placing the text…where, what font, what color…so it took a while. Keeping the letters smaller and more formal seemed to do the trick.

MUTATION…complete

I continue to work on this series and completed this piece a few days ago. It is the smallest canvas so far, and started out as an experimental piece…how to letter, how to represent the virus, etc. As I worked

Carrying On II

This is the second piece in the Carrying On series, based on the parfleche cylinder shape. It is probably most recognizable as a tribute to a Native utensil because of its presentation and the suede fringe. My concept for the

Carrying On I

This is the second piece I completed using woven cotton strips. I combined them with fabric I painted and quilted VERY densely. I thought I would quilt in a larger circular pattern, but it added too much texture and competed

Woven…no. 1

This is the first of three woven cotton pieces I completed in the past few weeks. I have struggled to achieve the right “sticks” for the top, but think I am satisfied with the arrangement in the second picture. Neither

I finished my first piece using the many boxes I folded and painted. I wanted to complete a piece to test my concept and to work out the technical aspects of putting it all together. I wanted to test color…do
