Stars To Light Your Candles

I posted a shot of this stapled to my drawing board in progress a month ago, but here's a better look at the finished painting/drawing. The glitter paint is mostly undetectable head-on, but can be seen better from an angle, like a sparkly surprise...

Angel's Armor

Angel's Armor  2013
colored pencil, wax crayon, acrylic on paper
18 x 24"

Angel's Armor feels related to Daughter (2007), the bizarre winged armor adding a celestial or science fiction feel, which along with the pink hair evoke the look of a comic book heroine. And I like that.

Art Movie: Tony Renner, Works On Paper @ Urban Eats

I made a little movie on the spot this past Sunday of artist Tony Renner's showing of works on paper at Urban Eats in South St. Louis, a place we have both shown together in the past. The pieces were a sampling of Tony's evolving working methods on paper in a variety of medium  from the last five years, and future plans are mentioned at the end of the video. Coming into the arts somewhat an outsider just a few years ago, Tony immersed himself in art-making, poetry, and music with an open mind and enthusiastic output that is still refreshing to me. See Tony's work through April at Urban Eats Cafe, 3301 Meramec, St. Louis, MO. Enjoy...
