Working on the Judgment Card for the Zeitgeist Tarot and found an opportunity to talk about one of the amazing color effects that makes me love the Mische Technique

Hi everyone!  Despite appearances and sparse updates, I’m happy to report that I have been hard at work on some new pieces including a couple of additions to the Zeitgeist Tarot.  While I receive notifications when someone has made a purchase through my RedBubble store, RedBubble does not disclose the name of the person who […]

I applied to my first art competition and it’s a doozy of a competition.  The Smithsonian has a triennial (yes, that means once every three ennials) portrait competition and the pieces that are accepted go on tour for three years.  Also you can win cash moneys.  I decided to enter “The Mirror Stage” and when […]
