Acrylic on Panel, 10" x 12.25"
This is a painting/sketch I started last summer that sat around on my shelf for the school year. While working on some current projects, I applied a charcoal and acrylic medium glaze to the painting and thought I might go back into with some color. I never knew how to start it though because it worked so well as a monochrome. With some encouragement and affirmation from my pal Ryan, I decided to leave it as is. Hope you enjoy.

For my Intro to Art Education class (that was finished almost a month ago...geez) I made these little guys for our artist book assignment. It was a nice final project we got to do at the end after a hard semester of reading and writing papers. Lookit:
They each have three little graphite drawings (2"x2") with imagery derived from the concepts of learning, discovery, exploration and vision in the art classroom.
For those of you familiar with Shaun Tan, I was really inspired by his book The Arrival for this project.
It was fun to have another chance to revisit my book making skills. It had been quit a while since I had made any. The accordion pages are such a nice format and unfold to an elegant display.
