Premises Promises

Premises Promises

patches of growth
the ground is ready for spring
but are we
arrows pointing up
two large diamond windows in the hill
crops of holes
punched in the dirt
poked in the cloud
poked in the promise
the windows make eyes
at the new red arch
a strange lazy building
lounges blue across the ground
i stand on it
premises promises

This digitally finger painted piece was a collaboration with the students from Trinity Episcopal School when they visited Ciel Gallery. Read more here. Add this painting to your collection.

trans-continental lunch break

Today during lunch I was invited by my friend and Woven Narratives art partner Fabric Lenny to join him in taking a new app Talkboard for a collaborative spin. It has been a while since we were able to do realtime collaboration (R.I.P. Sketchshare), so it was a welcome activity to get back into.  Not much later, our shared digital whiteboard resulted in “Pinocchio & the Minotaur“. Look for more to come as we make the most of this new creative outlet.

Day Five-Six 31:31 in 15

This piece is a continuation of the student responses coming out of a workshop I taught last year. That same two session workshop lead to a great show “Influenced Art “, hosted by Warehouse242. The exhibit brought together 34 artist from around the world with 40 students from around Charlotte.(a post with images from the show is coming) The show is display until the end of the month, if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet please make plans to swing by.
Any way, one if the pieces I did for the show titled “Remember Wren”, was influenced by the artwork of a young girl Wren. She has a sister Talia. We ran shy of artist, so not every child’s piece got paired up. Wren was so pleased with her painting that the parents asked me if I would do a painting influenced by Talia’s art. How could I refuse? So day five painting is influenced by her drawing. Needless to say day five an six have been very busy so I have not yet completed the piece :(. I am posting an image of the work in progress.
