Zebra :SOLD. Limited Edition Prints available
"Zebra" is a mixed media on a 30 x 30" canvas. color Pencil, Ink and Pastel. There is also a touch of raw wool. what inspired me to create this composition was the natural beauty of the actual Zebra pelt laying out to dry as is went through the stages to be preserved as a rug. the image was so flat, and the undertones behind the stripes were so faint, but I saw another pattern and needed to play with it. And the detail of the eye just struck me, enthralled me to focus of giving the eye special attention. My reward was to finally add the wool to detail the eye.

"Listen" :SOLD Limited edition prints available
"Listen" is 16 x 20" Color Pencil and Pastel. Color Pencil is considered a painting, as there are many many layers of pigment employed to create this work. I am new to color pencil, but I just love the properties of transparent colors, layering and methods of burnishing. It has many of the properties as my enamels and oils.
My inspiration for "Listen" was actually seeing this wonderful Hair, [which was mounted at Kulis Freeze Dry in Bedford, Ohio] and being able toreally look at it, photograph it and then draw it, each hair, every detail!! Why the title 'Listen"? My dear friend Raine, named it, as we were talking about the importance of kindness, which involves really listening. Be kind and listen. And this Hair has the ears to prove it!! It is as though he is leaning in just to Listen.
