My idea about how to show off what I can do with copper patina will be on diplayed at Las Vegas Artist Gallery next week. Copper is quite soft metal to work with and the patina can be from a deep purple, bark blue to a turquois. The piece that goes in to the book is made from hammer copper, this helps harden it so it’s harder to bend. The feather has been pressed and hammered in to shape but still can be bent. My artist side of me likes a feather to act like a feather, light and delicite. So please treat the feather as a feather made out copper by a artist. The entire piece has been laquered to seal the color.
Thank you Terry Pratchett I used a portion of your book Wee Free Men.
Christmas cards for 2022 will have something to do with candles. The first four candle with candle holder. I will cut them to 5″ x 7″ and attach them to the blank card. They will go to Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery. I don’t make prints anymore I’d rather spend my time painting not cropping images.
Im not on ” Social Media ” any more, my WordPress Blog post on all platforms to display my art work.
“Sunrise in the canyon” is a watercolor painting 36” long and 16” high. When I painted I didn’t think it would be hard to frame. I orders a frame last month it’s still not here. Yesterday morning I pulled out some teak I found last year on the side of road and some trim wood from the garage. I have a Matt cutter and Matt board from when I was a landscape photographer. Last night the frame had two coats of stain on it. A artist is not payed by the hour. You can see my painting April 12 to May 16 at the Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery at the Galleria Mall Henderson NV.
I put “Oil can on truck rim” back up on the easel for shadows and highlights. It made it have more depth. It’s a 8″ x 10″ oil painting done here at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery at the Galleria Mall.
There is some beautiful art at the Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery. A all volunteer crew hung a gallery full of local artists. The tables and the glass cases are full of more paintings, ceramics and prints.
The gallery is open 10 am to 9 pm with volunteers working behind the Desk
