I had an amazing time creating this piece for the Alice in Wonderland project. It is for a coffee table book that will be printed in Norway.

The project is described by the creators as this…

 

150Alice is a project celebrating the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.  We have brought together 150 brilliant illustrators from around the world that have each created a single page for this 300-page book.

The project promotes the illustrators’ art in a unique way and gives them an opportunity to create a masterpiece together. It provides them a platform to give back to the community by expressing themselves and sharing their talent with the world.

Lewis Carroll created Wonderland, and the story surrounding it, out of his love of entertaining children. His story gained great success and 150 years later is still enjoyed by children all over the world.

We are here to drive forward Lewis Carroll’s idea of encouraging art and creativity among children. At 150Alice, all profits from this book will be donated to educating children in China and Mongolia about art and creativity. With your generous support, we can help a generation of children develop a more vivid imagination.

I would like to thank both Sig and Thomas for letting me work on such an important project.

Clown Cluster Coming Along…

Clown Cluster
The Clown Cluster

I have been working on this clown cluster for about 3 days and only that long because painting is going slow. Sometimes it does that. I finally got into it by the time I made it over to the purple clown. Each one still has lots of detail work to be done but I wanted to show you the progress so far. This one measures 20 inches x 24 inches!!! Enjoy!

Paintings going home…

Well it was a great run at the Warwick Museum of Art but today I am happy to say my illustrations go back home to The Story Emporium. The one’s that didn’t sell of course 🙂 I just want to thank everyone that went and supported me and for those who didn’t don’t you worry, there will be many more to come with new pieces!

Yesterday I finally dragged my butt back into the studio and prepped my workspace to create some new stuff which I’m really looking forward to making. As I work I will post my progress so you can see what’s coming your way.

Like always… thanks for following!

Post Surgery

Well I went ahead and did it. I had the spine surgery I swore I never would have. I was losing the use of my right arm and hand and fast! The doctors told me I may never draw again. What is an artist to do? Soooo, I took myself to the hospital (well my Mom did) and I went into the operating room hesitant mind you. But I did go in and thats what counts. Although my back problems are not cured I did regain the use of my right arm…whew! I am hoping that with my new cadaver bone (yes you heard me correctly) in my neck will work much better now, although the Doctors make no promises. I do want to show you some finished pieces I had not put up before. These pieces are for sale and can be found at THE STORY EMPORIUM in The Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket RI on 1005 Main Street.
