One for the art majors

I sketched this a dozen times on various scraps of paper before finally sitting down, finding a reference and finishing it. This watercolor version was made for the 2011 Actual Size show now on display at the Whitdel Arts gallery in Detroit.

Not an art major - I had to look up the reference, but still found it highly amusing...

I love him and this :) they are awesome in very complementary ways. Also one of my recent fave kids' books is about his work: Masterpiece by Elise Broach - seriously fun - sort of more fantastical story for fans of "From the Mixed-Up Files..."

You gotta have he(art)

A very smart person at the DIA decided to hand out foam cut-out hearts to visitors for the Valentine's Day weekend, with the idea that you could lay the heart in front of your most beloved artwork. Well, I'm too much in love with too many items in the DIA's collection to choose just one, so I snapped some semi-selfies of me giving my heart to just a few of my favorites.

"For me?" (Karl Schmidt-Rotluff, "Evening By The Sea")
"What the Heckel I do if you won't be my Valentine?" (self portrait woodcut by Erich Heckel)
"I've lost my head over you, Valentine!" ("Judith and Maidservant with the Head of Holofernes," by Artemisia Gentileschi)
No jokes - I'm pretty sure I've touched the little sculpture "Donkey" by Renee Sintenis  every time I've visited the museum since I was in grade school. Love...
Heart Attack I (Central American warrior figure [need to find the info on this guy...])

Somewhere in Time

...on page 58, actually, of the August 29, 2016 issue of Time magazine. That's where there's a small photo of the Little Library I painted, the one in front of the Hatch Art gallery! So that's a first.


Beside myself

Two recent selfies. I leave it to you to decide if I look like Bryan Cranston or Chuck Norris (as has been suggested...)
