Happy Thursday Everyone! For my TBT image I decided to go with one of my old photography pieces. When I was younger I became interested in photography as much as fine art. At the age of seventeen I began to borrow my fathers camera and photograph compositional subjects. In 2008 after my father purchased a professional SLR camera for me, I photographed one of the most powerful photos I've ever taken. September 14, 2009 Hurricane Ike occurred in Houston. "After Ike" reflects the devastation of the day after the storm. My next door neighbor (shown in the photo below) was without hot water and electricity for a week, and had countless branches and debris in his yard. Nevertheless everyone was grateful that the storm was mild compared to precious hurricanes such as Katrina .
Wave work and Mesmerizing waves are my last ocean scene art works for the month of July! My ocean scene works are really taking off! Two works ocean relaxation and crashing waves will both be featured in Montreal Quebec by the glass door gallery! Check back soon for more ocean works!
Today I finally finished my painting based upon Alice of wonderland. Wonders of wonderland show the curious nature of Alice in the chaotic wonderland! Two essential icons were added to accentuate the illogical world of wonderland . How did Alice get to wonderland? While following a rabbit of course. How did Alice essentially enter into the world of wonderland? Through a door key hole of course. Abstract wonders are in us all waiting to be awoken Alice found hers have you found yours is the true wondrous question.
Before Sleeping Beauty, or even Snow White there was Marie Antoinette! While continuing on with my pop cultural icon series I became inspired to make a art piece based on Marie Antoinette. "Let the Eat Cake" depicts a cake slice on the verge of being demolished under a guillotine. Making this art piece was fun but expensive and time consuming due to unforeseen issues with measurements and collecting the objects to make it. The original glass to be used was a cake stand but the cake slice and guillotine was to big for the stand. Thus began my search for a glass alternative, hence the concept with a terrarium. Overall this project was fun and different than any work of art I've created.
