Sacred Secret.

Sacred

Pastel on paper, 18″ x 24″.

This is another piece from the Vizcaya series. It’s a rendering of, what we consider to be, the most sacred place in the gardens. The land is heavy with a kind of romantic energy. It gave my husband and I the most remarkable and deep connection either of us had ever felt! We go there to recharge every year.

Dreams from the Tardis : The Novice.

Dreams from the Tardis2

Acrylic on canvas.   22″ x 30″.

This piece is #2 in the series. I chose Novice Hame because she’s a really controversial figure in the show. On the one hand she and her peers in the senate do everything they can to protect the people of their world, but to the point of tyranny. On the other hand, she is the guardian of the race, trying to ensure that the species is safe guarded from death and disease. She began with the purest of intentions. But her dream was flawed. A fact she was oblivious to until the Dr. pointed it out.

Dreams from the Tardis : 14.

Acrylic  on canvas.   22″ x 30″.

This piece is part of a Dr. Who series I’m working on. The show is amazing on so many levels! The themes are universal and there is something really beautiful about time traveling through the universe in something so ordinary as a police box. The Dr. himself has taken on many incarnations since the series began back in 1963. But this series is centered on my favorite incarnation, the 10th Dr., David Tennant. He is both timeless and timely all at once. He brings an element of fun to the dangers that plague our planet. He has a rebelious energy about him that I think serves the Dr. very well. The show is inspired so I think this is a great way to start the new year. Happy 2013 all!!

An Invitation

The Invitation

Collage. Construction paper,paint pen, ink.         12″ x 18″.

Sometimes I feel like I just HAVE to make art, just to know I’m alive. This was one of those days. We were back @ UM in that magical place where we churn out all this incredibly powerful work! There was no question of what we were going to do. It was all about pop art, and mythological icons. It was the best crop of ideas yet! It made me feel absolutely ecstatic, enchanted, and electric!!

Tree of Life.

Gold, silver, and white paint pen on paper.  12″ x 18″.

This was a minimal reference, free-hand exercise in drawing for me. To draw a line on the page without having to think about whether it is straight enough, curved enough, or where it was in space was a little odd at first. As it turned out, the more lines I drew on the page, the more giddy I felt. Like a child at play.

City of Temples.

Construction and tissue paper with decoupage.   12″ x  18″.

This was a great variation on a series of collage pieces I worked on last month. It’s a real treat to approach things with as minimal a reference as possible. Illustration demands such constant referencing of material. Its nice to be able to just dream things up, and put them directly on the page!

Twix.

Paint pen and ink on paper.    18” X 24”.

The thing I find most fascinating about little canines is their sense of  hyper- bravado. They’ve got attitudes.  So beware, their just too tough! Twix projects that with perfection.
