Progress

Here you can see some of the hundreds of pilings that are being added which will eventually support the main structures which I’m working on now. Using blueprints, the idea is to mimic in a relatively accurate way the construction of sections of a large gravity dock such that are found on the Great Lakes.

New Project

4′ wide by 6′ tall on canvas. Another 3D work which will incorporate built wooden structures based on industrial scale docks as once found on Lake Superior. I’m utilizing hundred-year-old blueprints for their construction. This work will focus on time and to some extent, cycles.

Sinking and Burning the Boat

Very excited to be at this point in the painting. I prepped & “sunk” the boat last night. A beautiful day at 46°F to spend under the sky. I have my work cut out for me now.

Video can bee seen at my Instagram.

Lures

I have a thing for fishing lures. I’m not sure why exactly… I don’t fish. Here’s some details from past #paintings. I use ashes and small seeds from our field for texture.

New Painting Video

Here’s a quick Instagram tour of a 2’x2′ painting on panel in progress. I imagine this will take much of the winter to complete:

 

Presentation at UWEC

I had an amazing time with UWEC art students this morning. I loved every minute of it. I pulled no punches and was very straight with them about my experiences and what awaits them “out there” in the art world. I did my very best to encourage and inspire them, and to embolden them about their importance and worth. I care a lot for students and I wish them the very best.
