Paper Cutouts

Paper Cutouts

So I'm resorting to some previous techniques with paper cutouts, with a new and enhanced process that is aligned with the wood cutouts. While I've completed 3 so far, I only have one precise image.  I have to say, it's been very busy at times and other times, I have to stop everything to re-balance. The paper cutouts came during that period. Time is winding. The Atlanta Exhibition will display 3 of my wood works on February 15. Then, another showing in Hapeville, GA the third week of February, held at the Hapeville Depot Museum.  I hope to be done with...

Atlanta Show, Canvas Prints & Organization

The year is drawing to a close. 2019 has been, not as productive as I'd like, but productive nonetheless. Since my focus word for the coming year is organization,  I'm going to take these last weeks of the year to prepare and go into 2020 with a good start on it. I'm under no illusions about it. Anymore. 3 facts I'm clear on: It's a daily ritual that will demand my attention.  I have to do it, whether I want to or not.  Each day needs to have a plan. My mind is already in the direction of gathering paperwork...

Creating Ads

     I'm working out the magazine content and I think the first publication is in October. Thereafter, in January, April and July. I've an assignment to complete a stop motion ad, which I'll share here. I've done a few in recent years but I'm a newbie, so I hope I do it justice.  I submitted a Facebook ad today of the video in this post. I hope to do a stop motion for the site over the summer. It's going to be a busy one too. I've been scrounging for energy this weekend, so it looks as if I'll...

New Work, New Lifestyle and Faith Ringgold

Interestingly enough, I'm two weeks on the vegan path and I found myself with a vicious cold that hit me on Sunday. I'm about 75% today but gee wee, it was rough! I pushed myself to complete a piece through it all. About two years ago, I was visiting my acupuncturist to relieve me of some health issues and because I eventually resorted back to die-hard eating habits that didn't benefit my overall health, the problem resurfaced. I've gone a step further in adapting to a vegan lifestyle. Outside of this cold, I feel great. My energy is up, I sleep...

Untitled No. 2

It's a rainy day in Georgia. That being said, I won't be cutting wood in my extended studio today, which is the garage. I am, however, conceptualizing my promo, which will be a combination of stop motion and still photos.  So here's the direction... I'm a 70s kinda chiq. I'm stuck there. I have so many memories of growing up during that time. And not that my work is autobiographical. It was just the best of times. I tend to reflect on my southerness, if you will but the more I flip through my sketches, everyone looked so 70ish in...
