SPECIAL CARE : ROLY BOWLS

Here is an art lesson I taught at Special Care last month. “Roly Vessels / Bowls” are made by mixing 2 different colors of clay and rolling the clay flat and then dropping into a bowl shaped form. The kids enjoyed playing with the clay and the kids get to keep these awesome pieces of art to remember all the fun. Huge thanks to Chesapeake Operation Blue for the hands on help w/ the kiddos and Cynthia Curry for firing these beauties in her kiln. Michael Collins and Special Care... Read The Rest →

New Abstract Work 2012

2012 ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM I finished “Rusty Cage” this month. I have been working on and off on this piece for almost a year. The canvas has about 15 layers of super heavy textured paint mixed with found objects. I call it art therapy through abstract expressionism.

OVAC 12 X 12

“DESTROYED METAL” / 12″ X 12″ / ACRYLIC ON CANVAS “The metal sign, or ‘sign of the goat,’ has all but lost its impact as a token of respectful recognition for something truly ‘rocking’ or ‘metal,’” SMC president Terence “Geezer” Butler said. According to Butler, members are upset that their sacred gesture is being used to acknowledge and celebrate “favorable but clearly non-metal events.” — The Onion I read this article and it inspired me to make this painting… I love the idea that a hand gesture can be abused…...
