PAW in progress

These are pieces for my Providence Art Window that will be on display in June.
So far, everything is going pretty well. I wish I had time to develop more interesting
techniques in 3-D, but I'm going with what I'm comfortable with for now. There is
one more piece to work on, so I feel as though I'm in good shape.
Today, I started painting. I painted the backs, which made the pieces curl a bit,
which I expected. So, I began to immediately start painting the fronts as well
and that seems to have solved that problem. each piece will have some kind of
other materials; the blue dog will have fuzzy material for spots, the ram will
have felt for hair and beard, etc.
I'll post some new shots after I make more progress.

Providence Art Window Sketches

These are sketches for pieces I'm in the process of making for an
upcoming Providence Art Window. They will be free-standing and
constructed from foamcore and other materials like felt and fabric.
They represent characters that I'm developing but haven't really
put into any context such as a children's picture book. The
window will be revealed some time in June. I'll keep you posted.

8X8 Paintings

New little paintings. A few fun characters and
trying new things. I'm going to attempt to sell
them in a kid's clothing store.

"Just Us" a new comic

I've wanted to create my own comic for a long time, but I
just haven't been able to get it started. Inspiration struck this
week and I decided to create a comic about my own life.
Wow! How original! Well,...many artists use their own life for
inspiration, so why not me ?
I'm fairly happy with the result and have a half dozen other
ideas for strips, so there will be more to come. Let me know
what you think, I need feedback.
