    Dream of the Humpbacks
    A Limited Edition of 100 with 10 Artist's Proofs

    This is one of my more organic and dynamic compositions. Instead of a drawing, I poured hot wax on a board and carved back into it. This is what emerged.
    The painting on this is pretty organic also and varies from piece to piece.

    The frame dimensions are 22" x 28" 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.
