Below you will see a photo of another piece I am working on that will match my "Sing Your Heart Out Rosita!" piece. This one I call "Sing it, George!"
So far I've sketched him out on a 30" x 60" wood panel, and now today on my back porch while the sun was shining this morning I built up his 3rd dimension using newspaper taped together. I use the newspaper because it's lightweight, free, and I'm recycling!
Tomorrow, or later on this evening if I'm feeling inspired I will sculpt George with the Sculptamold.
I like to have multiple pieces going at various stages so that I've always got something I can work on, and I'm never stuck waiting for a piece to dry.
Right now I've got Hired Help ready to paint, which I'll work on this weekend, Sing it, George ready to be sculpted, and another piece entitled "Proper Motivation" that I will be sketching out onto a big wood panel. This last one has 5 figures in it so it's going to be a doozy to create, but I love the look of my bigger works and how they tell a story with lots of crazy characters. As well, a good friend of mine got my wheels spinning with a bunch of new ideas that I need to get down in my sketchbook before I forget, so guaranteed this is going to be a busy weekend.

On another note.....
Today I was interviewed in Wellend, Ontario for a regional art project called Art on Water. It's a very cool idea in which they are taking images of local artist's work and projecting them huge on a waterfall and putting on a big show. Almost all of the artists were video taped talking about their art and how the Niagara Region inspires their work and this too will be part of the whole evening.
If you are in the area, come check it out - Wellend , Ontario June 10th 8pm at the City Hall.
Once again, as always, Thank You for Visiting!
