Two pieces from Human Paint Forms are in this group show.

Paint forms are a series of mixed media work where paint materials are assembled as abstract forms to draw relationships between process, presence, and transformation.

Paint is both the subject matter and medium. Sculptural application of paint arranged in collage presents questions about the the present moment, current state.

In 40 small works on panel and wood created in 2020, art materials take on forms from the creative process in given time, representing paint’s purpose.

Warm up drawings

15 min Life Drawing - Arts Garage Art Club life drawing group, March 11, 2021

For the first time in over a year, I got to attend a life drawing group in person. From 8-9 pm at the Arts Garage in Atlantic City, artists gathered for life drawing in real life.

Art Club‘s been meeting virtually but last night, they held a hybrid drawing session. There was a camera set up for the Zoom meeting, which was displayed on a flat screen TV in view. I wore a mask and the spacious area left plenty of room to sprawl out. It felt so good to draw with people again and all the artists in attendance were friendly.

I’m always on the lookout for more drawing sessions, especially as more and more people get vaccinated. Please let me know if you hear of any more.

Art Club is hosting another hybrid session on April 8, if you want to get in on it too.

I purchased a ticket for last night’s event on eventbrite.


If you have a few minutes, you’re welcome to peruse some more of my life drawing posts from over the years.

How bout some tee?

Maybe you noticed the new t-shirt section of the site after I posted Hot Tees the other day? If you haven’t seen it yet, click around. They’re one of a kind. Stalker Magnet and Got Antibodies? are from the Sick Healer collection, an original line of funny & medically inspired tees. Proceeds from the collection will be donated to VoiceLove.

Black & White Mono-prints

In Progress

New Year, new paints coming someday. Hopefully.

There are 3 48×60 heavy duty stretcher bar frames and a rolled up painting in the freshly painted hallway. Canvas and paint, coming soon.

Showing

B&W Show at the RRCArts in Millville up through March 13. I have two pieces in the group show that have never been shown. I recently framed the whole series in wildly reflective frames. I would really like to show them all together someday.

Values, transformation, weird, materials, unintended consequences, invasion of privacy, power, control, revelations. These are still themes inspiring me.

Free Fabric Color Swatch Downloads for Illustrator

I made some swatch libraries to make my design life easier. One color swatch library is based on the Bella + Canvas 3001 t-shirts (the super soft ring-spun cotton collection I use).

Why not share them? Here’s a free download.

They probably aren’t for everyone, but if you use Adobe Illustrator to design t-shirts to be printed on B+C 3001 series, or the other tee collections below, these will make your color mock-up life a little bit easier.
