Minnesota Inspiration

There is nothing better than being inspired by your surroundings. Especially when they are as great as Minnesota!

The sketchbook is designed using pictures that Courtney (Just Another Day Designs) shot while downtown Minneapolis & the envelopes are created using a Walker Art Center brochure...

So Jot down some notes and doodles in this sketchbook
Send a few fashionable recycled notes snail mail style!

Wax Tree

Wax tree
I started working on a new series of paintings using collage and wax on wood panel. I got two in the series complete. I really like the way the wax becomes opaque or transparent depending on how much heat is applied.

I ended up starting my work bench on fire with the hotplate I was using to melt the wax with. The two in this series thus far probably will be the only ones for a while.

The other one is here: Knot In a Tree
