Motion Drawing

For this I used a previous picture of water streaming across the picture. I drew that using the sense of motion it gave. I did that by shading and highlighting the water stream. In this you can see the droplets flying off the stream. You can also see the flow in the stream by the shading and highlights.

Mixed media collage

For this collage i decided to go with a NYC theme. I started by using thin sheets of metal to shape the tall skyscrapers. I painted the background black for a night sky. I used the top of an old paint brush for the torch. I cut out letters from magazines for New York City. To color the statue I used water colors. The water is made of tissue paper and glitter.

Something Golden

This starfish is caught in just the right amount of sunlight to give it a golden glow. Already the starfish is a golden color. The light makes it stand out.


For this photography post I had to take a picture of a machine. I took this picture in Italy at a vineyard. This is a machine that is used to produce many gallons of wine.

Inspirational Quote

"The artist sees what others only catch a glimpse of" -Leonardo da Vinci. 
I got my inspiration from this quote. The artist would see what lies under the fabric. The normal eye would only see what on top, or the more basic view. I used the swirls in the sky to give a Van Gough look. I used modeling paste for the mountains to make them pop more. I took an ordinary scene and gave it an almost enchanted look.

Halloween Challenge

For this project I used acrylic paints to create this candy corn covered canvas. The left candy corn with the grey background is the actual colors for candy corn. For the others I used different colors and changed the background to give it an Andy Warhol look.
