Hanging Out at the..........

Artists In Action storefront this afternoon.  The city donated the downtown space for a month as an on-going effort to promote the arts.   Various members have volunteered to work in the space and show the public what we do.  I created the above mask today.

 Here, we have various painters in decisive, dynamic demonstration.
And Kev Kohler with his ambitious painting.

I apologize for the photo quality - I forgot my camera, so had to use my cell phone.

Coy Koi.....Part Two, the Second.........

........more paint....and still not finished...but it's beginning to take on definition.  And I think I'm beginning to get the feel of the water lilies.

Monday, July 23, 2012

Coy Koi...................

acrylic painting in progress (size of wooden panel is about 22 x 17).  Started it a month ago in a rare fit of enthusiam (yes, I never learn), but found some inspiration this weekend to begun anew the process of putting paint to board.  I like the water...the fish is passible...but the water lilies are going to challenge me (what an epitaph: Challenged to the Death by Water Lilies..and here he lies, food for flies, beaten by the Plant Kingdom...a martyr for art."  Catchy eh?

Robot Dreams.......

begin to manifest.  Of course, I couldn't just make something easy...I had to go and consider LED wiring, so the task is somewhat greatly increased.....but work progresses.  10mm red LEDs for the eyes, the hole in his chest shall be covered by an Altoids tin (suitably tailored) to hold the battery and I have no idea for the arms/hands yet.....still  musing on that.  And dials...and lots of other stuff.....
