Back to School

This past week I started class at Metropolitan State College of Denver for K-12 teaching licensure.  I'm taking two art studio classes, Sculpture I and Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing.  In Sculpture I our first project (as well as the other two for the semester) is primarily in wood, specifically 2x4's for project one.  Here is a page of studies for my idea, a large relief type sculpture about 2' tall by 3' wide.

Frank Auerbach

This is another Lucian Freud sketchbook study, this time from his 1975/76 painting Frank Auerbach.  Dori got me a Taschen book on Freud for my birthday so there might be quite a few more posts like this.

A minor

August has been rushing by with a cruel gusto!  Displayed are some items from my sketchbook, some I've been meaning to share for quite some time.  I've also been working on my beetle painting, which is almost finished so I hope to share that soon.  The day job at DIA is tiring and time consuming, but I'm still trying to enrich my bus rides and breaks with drawing and reading, as well as food and sleep when necessary. Time is just stretched thin and is about to get thinner as I start school for teaching certification next week.  These are trying but exciting times.  I'm ready for my favorite season of autumn, which will be upon us soon.

and so it goes.

This past Sunday night, Dori and I lost our dear little rat, Gustav.  Things are very sad around our place as we try to adjust to life without our handsome little friend.
Here is one of the last sketches I made of him, as he cuddled with his brother, Bernard.

And one of our favorite pictures of him on a play day at the park.

Goodbye, Gustav, and thanks for enriching our lives for the past two years.  We love you, little guy!
