Photos of my paintings and entries on my working processes, progressions and sometimes the lack thereof.

If Wishes Were Horses, Beggars Would Ride
As requested, here is a better view of the sculpture from the last post. My sculpture instructor and Mentor Madeline Wiener would be ashamed at the condition of this piece but she was and still is a fabulous teacher and mentor. She now conducts the Marble Marble workshops in Marble Colorado where students come from all over the country to work on a piece of pure white marble from the quary that most of the monuments in Washington come from. What a great experience to carve stone in the woods in the mountains of Colorado! There are other sculptors that join her in instruction and of course they are all stellar as well. I actually had the pleasure of learning directly from her in her garage in Aurora Colorado. What a great teacher and such lovely person.
