the big bear; a recent project.

Originally uploaded by Scenic Artisan
while not particularly complicated, i'm working on this fun painting for a coffee shop around the corner from my house.

this is an in-progress shot. there will be a coffee cup in the bears hand, maybe words, fine tuned lines. but you get the gist.

and you know... email me if you want to hire me to do something similar for you........


what do you think he's reading to them?

Whats been going on?

I havent posted that much lately, but i don't really have a good excuse as to why.

-Artomatic is now over and was a fairly busy event for me. In addition to exhibiting and being there for as many events as i could, i also organized an artists market to set up for three sundays. AOM is an extemely rewarding experience and i would encourage all artists to participate in it when it comes around again.

-I had two weekend workshops that i've recently taught and were quite succesful.

-Rania and i set up at a craft show in baltimore.

-We're doing the Ballston Arts and crafts Market this saturday in Ballston, VA.

-Pile of Craft in Baltimore at the end of the month.

-i've been posting a bunch of art on my gallery. look at my amazing feedback!

- I've moved out of my studio in mount rainier and am currently working out of my house.

- I have a show at Black Rock arts center coming up.
August15- September 7th, with an artists reception on August 18th.

shoot me an email if you want anymore details, of if you are interested in some faux finishing
