Miz Beulah Fowler and Miz Ruthie Wyandotte, 13 x 10.5″ each, mixed media on Rives BFK Tan paper. I posted Beulah when I finished her; now she has a friend. And today I begin work on my 2016 calendar: Chickens of Distinction. Oh – and I have no idea what breed Beulah is; her owners didn’t know either. Can anyone here help me ID her?

Hey rev, I was just curious, but as an artist what medium do you prefer to work with? Personally my primary medium is digital, as I have the most experience with it, but after taking a figure drawing class at my junior college, I've come to find out I also really love charcoal and newsprint/Rives BFK printing paper.

In order
Acrylic paint
Oil paint.

I really like painting but it’s also a total ball ache to set up. Pencil is much faster to sit down and do and a lot less expensive. Honorable mention to woodcut that I love but practically can’t do in this tiny apartment.


Intaglio ink relief print of a cassette tape…. the texture of music. I ripped open a cassette, and wanted to capture the texture of another “obsolete” musical device. A reminder that this is what we used to listen to music at one point in time.

i intaglio wiped the parts of the cassette tape, ran it through the press, and this is the beautiful detail and texture i got, simply from the inside of a device we used to use to play music, an obsolete technology that held sound in rolls of tape.

This is part of a series of prints i did, where i took musical devices, dismantled or dissected them, and pulled print images from them.
