Artwork right now!
This is my biggest painting to date (3'x5'), done in my style of layering and sanding paints. I have worked to perfect this technique over the last 15 or more years. Lots of high quality acrylic artists paint and additives create a fairly thick coat that is sanded down to a highly textured base, then painted over more and more until it is almost completely filled back in. Once sanded, the final result is a smooth surfaced, highly busy piece that resembles oil on water, and has color qualities similar to early impressionist work. Viewing from a distance reveals a complete image, while up close inspection is a dance of colors, shadows, and lines.
Here are a few lamps that I made for a recent showing. These are at least 90% recycled parts, made with aluminum, copper, and other reclaimed wire. The bulbs are 12v LED, which are replaceable and come in a variety of colors. The upper flower shaped cones are made from used computer keyboards and circuit boards. The larger one is still for sale, feel free to contact me if you are interested. Other shapes or styles may be commissioned upon request.
I recently finished a custom table made from a reclaimed door, which was up for charitable auction for KDUR radio. It was made from one of the old studio doors, that had been covered with stickers. It did well at their live auction, and was purchased by one of their new and upcoming DJs! Thanks to Kynan Kelly for giving it a home, and helping to support KDUR in Durango, CO.
