Sometimes I just create images from bits and pieces of things I collect and save,like tree bark.

This photo was taken about halfway through my taking photos at sunset for ten minutes on March 2,2013. These colors in these photos were not enhanced and are very close to the colors I saw that evening.

Thanks to my followers and friends that comment on my posts and to anyone that takes the time to look at my blog posts.
Tomorrow I’ll continue my drawings of classmates in my second grade class from 1946.

I painted this oil on canvas self portrait in 1960 and I am showing this to compare my student work with work done after graduating from Washington University in 1961.
This oil portrait of my granddaughter Claire was painted about four years ago.
This oil portrait of my granddaughter Delanie was painted about four years ago shortly before I painted the portrait of her sister Claire.
This oil on canvas portrait of my wife Carolyn was painted about three years ago. I never date my paintings so all dates are approximate.

The title of this image came after its’ completion. This image was accepted in the juried show “All Things Considered” ,July 1997, and the size is 16″ wide x 17″ high. I don’t remember the complete process of the creation of this image but I remember that I painted my hands black and made prints of them. The center and left portrait of me was created by placing my face on a black and white copy machine, the portrait on the right was created by masking the shapes in the face and using my palm prints to create the shadow area. I used a Rapidograph pen with black ink to add detail to this face. The 1/4 th inch squares were drawn with a 03 HB technical pencil.The color was applied using an airbrush containing liquid acrylic paint.

This is the second image I created while developing a new style. I wanted to create a different way of presenting a portrait. Since I am an available model I decided to create a self portrait. Step 1. I took video of myself while acting out different emotions.I became an actor in my movie. I used a VHS camcorder. Step 2. I inserted the cassette into my VCR and like the previous post took photos of the TV screen with my film camera. This was before HD TV and the screen on the TV consisted of horizontal lines which were apparent on my photos. Step 3. I copied my photos on a black and white copier at Mail Boxes Etc. This was before they became a UPS Store. I made various enlargements. Step 4. I colored the black and white copies with acrylic ink using an airbrush and round sable brush. Step 5. I built a three dimensional cardboard “sculpture” made up of various size boxes.I then glued on the colored copies. The next post will show the creation of the next stage of this art style. I created this about 1994.
