A few days ago I managed to print the 4th and final color (near black) on the Flaming Ford serigraph edition I’ve been working on. I printed 20 copies and only managed to mess up about 4 of those during the whole process. It was a learning experience and hopefully with the corrections I’ve made to my processes it will be a lower casualty rate next time. I signed and numbered all 20 but only 16 ended up in the edition. I made 4 of them just artist proofs, and will use them as gifts or display samples. I made a couple of short videosRead More →

I will maintain my studio and am in the process of converting it into a temporary apartment for me when I come to check onRead More →

Many years ago when I was attending the University of Florida getting my fine art degree in studio art, one of my personal projects was a portrait I did from a slide taken in Austria some 10 years prior. The subject was a fellow missionary in the Austrian mission, in my district at that time while we were working in Steyr. Our district, consisting of four missionaries, took a little scenic tour with some members of the branch one Saturday. We went on a train to a small valley and climbed around the hillsides and had a picnic lunch that day. I took the picRead More →
