    Dream of the Dolphin
    A dolphin rides the waves of the subconscious.

    Frame dimensions are 12" x 16"

    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.

    About Mat Options
    All Mats are acid free and this work includes the mat of your choice. See the pictures above to select your mat. Your piece will be painted to best match your mat.

    Some samples have mat details added to them. If you would like mat detail like a notch please let me know in the order comments. Otherwise I will assume you want a rectangular cut mat.
