And Now, Back to the Serious Business of Making Art...
I thought the back was unex- pectedly inter- esting... For more self-portraits done this way click on the Media: Cut Paper link below the picture of the back of the piece. For other bodies of my work in cut paper see Mandalas and Philodendron Leaves.
Sometimes, when you draw with a knife, you end up with two drawings instead of one. Technically these are at Ritual Cafe at Flora Grubb Gardens, where we have enjoyed excellent coffee and purchased a few exquisite plants.
Artist, Analyst, Aikidoist, Alexander Technique Teacher-Trainee.Artist: I've been living, working and exhibiting in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost 20 years. My subject matter ranges from portraits of people and animals to almost abstract paintings of plant forms and light. I paint in oil, acrylics, & watercolors, with oil paintsticks and watercolor markers, and with digital media such as pressure-sensitive tablet and Studio Artist software. I draw with anything I can get my hands on - sticks on wet sand and fingers on frosted windows, chunks of wood freshly burnt into charcoal and children's toys such as etch-a-sketch and magna-doodle. I also take landscape, figure, animal and street photographs, have played with printmaking (mostly monoprints) and have dabbled with sculpture in steel, wood, clay and neon.
