New Small Works, (Small Works Progress Administration) 2017

We’re already a couple weeks into the new year, I haven’t updated, but I have been busy.

I have started a new set of the Small Works Progress Administration (small paintings in acrylic and mixed media). That in the parenthesis there is something of a change in of itself: I discovered I really enjoy working in mixed media by doing a project for a friend. Previous series of small works had been in acrylic paint only, but this set includes acrylic paint, graphite, and marker, on gessoed cardboard. This new series will sell for $25 each. (dimensions are approximately 5″ x 9″, though these are hand-made items and their sizes vary)

The older small works can be seen here: http://wp.me/p2c9SR-bl

Putting newer stuff to the top now. I managed a few pieces this evening. I returned to images I have treated before in other places, some images come from cabinet photos, others are from my own 35mm photography of the area in which I live, and sometimes still life of random objects around my apartment:

I have always been fascinated with skeleton keys. As an adult I have a small collection of them I buy in antique shops. Here are three studies of a couple keys I own, one is decorative, the other was bought at an antique shop.
