    Heaven and Earth
    In almost every ancient culture the tree is seen as the conduit between the realms of the heavens and the earth. This is why trees were venerated as sacred.

    This size piece (24 x 40) is perfect for over a king size bed or a large sofa.

    The frame dimensions are 24" x 40" and 1" deep.

    Paper Casting
    Paper casting is to me the perfect medium. It allows me use almost every skill set. A typical piece begins as a drawing or two. Then I sculpt it in wax. This is a long refining process and often the image sculpted is far different that the drawing. Then I build a dam around the wax and pour a rubber mold directly off the surface. A casting is made by pressing wet cotton pulp into the mold and extracting the water. Then I finish the surface.
    While every piece that emerges from the mold is about the same, no two are really painted the same. Maybe I would if I could, but the painting process is always in flux. I am always experimenting with ways of mixing colors or washes and hard edge or new pigments. I send about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.
