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.
