6X6 submission



I submitted to 6X6 again this year. I like these better than the others I've done before. Also made the deadline with hours to go as opposed to last year where I had a 1/2 hour before the gallery closed. They sit side by side. Acrylic, gouache, spray varnish. These are the 6X6 photos used from the website. I couldn't do proper scans at the time because they were still drying as I was driving to the gallery to drop them off. Could use some improvements I think I'll do something bigger for personal work.

new piece



cat's cradle. If you read the book, I used the hands to look like praying and performing the string game so it goes along with the idea that religion is just like the cat's cradle, the cradle looking neither like a cat or a cradle and religion unable to produce what it professes. The Fat Man bomb is what Hoeniker was famous for, both the destruction it caused and the science. So I made it look like a snow globe because the ice nine he created eventually lead to the destruction of the world much like the destruction that the fat man bomb made. I hade fun making it. I wasn't pleased at first but theres alway that ugly stage that gets really discouraging.

picture of me



my partner drew a picture of me in Paint, you know the original drawing program from the 90s. then i did one of him.

a little of everything

I'm relearning chemistry so when I go back to school for PA I'll know what a periodictable is. Today I felt really accomplished, I not only solved several problems correctly but understood them all. You might not think it's a big victory but the book I got out from the library is pretty terrible and has a lot of mistakes in it and doesn't explain things very well. Thanks to the help of the internet, wikipedia, and cliff notes, I am a formula balancing monster! Using moles to find mass, volume and number of particles! Also in the art related realm of my life here's a sketch of my next blanket for Chris, a photo of some books I'll be selling at the arts, crafts and zine fair on march 20th on Clarissa Street. I also made a new business card a while ago but never printed or showed anyone. Also, a car accident I went to, no one was hurt- a
plow ran into 2 parked cars.
