Your Date Just Pulled Up

Acrylic on canvas
8" x 10"
I think a lot of young ladies have had their first date butterflies instantly turn into a stomache ache as they took a peek through the slit in the curtains and saw this. I wonder how many of them went on to marry the guy.

We went to Doheny for a beach party...on the wrong day.

Private Collection

Venice Window 2

Acrylic on laser etched paper. Cut card and paper grate, window frames and leaves.
11" x 14".
The window is cut out and a sill was built to accommodate the grate, window frames and the struggling plant, complete with a pot just visible through the glass.
This piece and the piece below start to take the image off of the flat pane, but they're not completely three dimensional.

Venice Canal Door

Acrylic on laser etched illustration board.
11" x 14"
Continuing my struggle to depict the textures of Venetian walls, I experimented with this bas relief etching, only on a much smaller scale than the piece below. The plumbing pipe is added from plastic tubing, but it's hard to see that in the photo.

Venice Wall

Mixed medium: Foam, Plex, Plastic. 48"x48"x10". The window lights up at night. I took a photo of a wall in Venice in 1997. Instead of making a painting, I sculpted it 10 years later.
