I just finished this one–and stayed up a little too late working on it. Anyway, I’m actually doing a series of dog portraits for commission work. There will be a few others in the future scattered here and there in my posts.

Pink Flowers

I saw these funny looking flowers in the butterfly garden on the mall in Washington, D.C., and I thought I’d do a collage of them. For my next piece, I think I’ll create another animal collage.

I finished the commissioned dog collage tonight–much to my surprise. I thought it would take me at least another day, even though the piece is fairly small. Now I’ll have some time to work on the portrait collage tomorrow.

I just finished this mini-flower collage. I’m working on a bunch of projects all at once, so hopefully I’ll have something completed by tomorrow–but if not, you’ll know what I’ll be doing–busy collaging. Today I also got started on making sketches for a commissioned piece of a dog, and a couple of days ago I got started on another fairly large portrait.

A Day in the Park

A lot of the people in the area are obsessed with their dogs–on a busy street a couple blocks from my house, there are two (not one, but two) dog bakeries. It was only fitting that I’d do a park scene that included a little dog.

And I’m done with this series for now. I’m off to work on cutting paper for my next projects. Perhaps another portrait? A flower? Another animal piece? We’ll see where my inspiration leads me.

The Torpedo Factory

This is a collage of the Torpedo Factory, which is a well known art gallery/artist studio community in Old Town. I’m thinking about making two more collages in this series. Then it’ll be back to working on art for the festival, and perhaps even working on another portrait.

In other news, the Alexandria Times published a little blurb about my work being exhibited in the Smithsonian’s Ripley Center, which I discovered today although it was published a month ago. The exhibition ended yesterday and I’ll pick up my piece later this week.
