Collage for Claire

  Collage made with cut outs from mostly magazines, but I also used cut outs from maps, a 70's nature book (tiger and Russian buildings), unsolicited advertising (bottom left yellow bird), the tag on a tea bag, a wedding invitation (brown flower), and a recent birthday card (top left bird), and 2 canceled US postage stamps. I also used paint, glue, and Sharpies.

In Progress: critters, bones, and flowers

Im still trying to find my signature style, which is why these paintings might look like they are painted by 2 or more artists.

Lincoln / Doodle Paint

I'm home sick again today, but at least I have enough energy to paint. 
So, I listened to an audiobook called: 1861  by Adam Goodheart,
 and I tried to salvage my another one of my Lincoln pieces. 
I made the rather large mistake of starting this large painting without having any idea of where I wanted it to go.  I have already sanded this down and put a few thin layers of gray on top a failing painting underneath. I'm not totally sure where its going. I just know it needs to go somewhere.

I feel like I spent an awful long time putting in a ton of detail work, and I feel like it barely makes a difference.  Oh well. At least its still a mystery and something to discover.
