Today I spent time with two different kinds of artwork: In Art History we lingered over American Impressionism, and I especially enjoyed the paintings of William Merritt Chase and Frederick Childe Hassam.  Food for thought: For who else in history but American artists between 1850-1950  and American assassins do we remember all three names?  

During 3-D Design we concentrated on installation artwork, and I'm a fan of the surprise that comes with stumbling across one of Mark Jenkin's packaging tape creations.   

I am now sitting at my laptop praying that my books I ordered from B&N with my Christmas giftcard will get here before tomorrow afternoon!  I've been waiting on The Gashlycrumb Tinies by Edward Gorey and The Anime Art of Hayoa Miyazaki by Dani Cayallaro.  I want to be able to read them on the ride up to North Carolina for our Sisterhood Retreat!

Business Card Original

So, I definitely agree with you guys about the simpler one, which got me looking at my original which had no flowers, and I think I like it the best. My mom had just asked that I add more color. What can I say?  I like to keep things monochromatic.  
What do you think?

Which One?

Which business card should I use?  #1 or #2?
Please comment and let me know what you think!

I Heart Ranunculus

Currently in season and in my heart...

I finished Pieta this afternoon.  It was a two day process, and I'm very proud of how she turned out.  I started with an HB pencil and then built up with vine and compressed charcoal.   It was incredibly tricky trying to capture her slight smile.

Koala Krunchies

One of my Alpha Gamms from GA Tech gave me a package of Koala Krunchies!  Neither of us had seen them since childhood.  I ate each of them one at a time and photographed my favorites.

Rain Clouds

Here is my latest project from 3-D Design.  I'm really proud of it.  We were instructed to create a relief using foam core and to wrap the pieces in paper.  So I naturally used my favorite paper in the world: vintage book pages!

Here is my next project in progress.  We must create a wire sculpture and I was inspired by my laptop case and love of teacup pigs to make a piggy carrying an umbrella.
