Oil on Paper

Fall is here and updates are due.  This year went really quickly.  The L.A. fire is still on my mind

I had the chance to show in my hometown this past month at the Harrison Center for the Arts' Annex space.  It was very short notice so it was kind of a mixture of images.

The work of work is work.

I was honored to be a part of the McLean County Art Center's "Emerging Artist" Show this year.  It was a great time and Bloomington Illinois was a blast.

Also, more updates will be coming soon in the form of photographs.  And as always you can see my most recent work (in-progress even) on my instagram feed.

It's been a busy couple of months and I'm excited to have been included in a couple of shows in my hometown of Indianapolis and Chicago Heights.  I honestly thought some of this work would never see the light of day!

"Connie slit her eyes at him."

 "She drew her shoulders up and sucked in her breath with the pure pleasure of being alive, and just at that moment she happened to glance at a face just a few feet from hers. It was a boy with shaggy black hair, in a convertible jalopy painted gold. He stared at her and then his lips widened into a grin. Connie slit her eyes at him and turned away, but she couldn't help glancing back and there he was, still watching her. He wagged a finger and laughed and said, "Gonna get you, baby," 

From the 1966 story titled "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" written by Joyce Carol Oates.
