Full steam ahead

Approaching midterm at full speed. Finished the first digital media project, three digital images using Photoshop, approximately 3' x 2' making a comment on the Big Three auto companies glut (not too heavy handed though).  Starting my second project for digital studio, a video, and a more personal theme,  aging. 

Meanwhile in the studio I'm working on a series of oil and cold wax abstracts, eight 4'x3' wood panels. Three are started. Aging, passing of time and its effects on surfaces - a variation of the aging theme. I'm using a different technique from last semester, inspired by Rebecca Crowell. I'm still finding my way but by the eighth one I hope I know more. This is one of the biggest projects I have tackled but it is exciting. The work is physically demanding. My next step is to build six more wood frames for the door skins.

On a different note

This demonstration is pretty awesome. Watch and enjoy and marvel at the human mind.
