some late night sketching was done the other night
Another old piece I did. Had to do inventory for taxes so get ready to head down memory lane.
Found my old painting from high school, this is made with water based oils, I love them.
Some of the photos that I take on my spare time are shown here. I usually take them on my iPhone as I wonder around my daily life. I miss having my camera, but don’t seem to need it that much anymore. Technology is truly amazing. You can see my VSCO profile HERE if you want to see more of my Iphone photography.
A work in progress that I started the other night. It’s called “first cut” this may not be the way it ends up looking once I am done With it so enjoying it like this before I mess it up. Hahah
Art Talk ::
I know I was curious about the buyer of Francis Bacon’s three panel portrait that was on display at the Portland Art of Museum for a short amount of time, called “Three Studies of Lucian Freud”. It sold for $142.4 million dollars, the most ever paid for a work of art sold at an auction. He buyer was non other than Elaine Pascal Wynn.
Amazing, is all I can say that people love the arts so much that they would pay that much for a piece of it. It also calls to question the “worth” of art. People always say it is in the “eye of the beholder” and we all know that each of us has a different idea of what any piece should sell for, but I have to say that this has brought me hope for people wanting to save “culture” in our society.
I feel like it can be so devoid of it sometimes, and with schools taking away programs such and art, theater, and music from our growing children, it always makes me wonder what kind of world awaits us in the future.
I can say one thing that I am sure of, I will never stop making art.

One of the photos from the cards I printed. I love this one. It’s so inviting yet not.
Still need cards for Christmas? I have some at the store. $10.00/ pack of 6
They are 5.1 x 6.8 inches with a 4X6 photo printed at my studio. You can also take the photograph out of the card and use it anyway you wish. All photos are black and white and are taken from my “Shades of Grey” book. (at www.mzscreations.com)
