Altered, Image #13

Pastel, ink on UART paper

Alleyway, Wood's Buildings, between Winthrop Street and Buck's Row,

New Pastel Painting

'Works For A Living'

Pastel on Wallis paper

More of my "Working Class American's" Series.

I'm trying to capture the loneliness,
difficulties, anonymous desperation, nothingness, and hard won
hopefulness of the working class way of life in America.
(I know, I grew up that way).

Life size

Will be included in the
Art At The Georgia National Fair Exhibition,

Wild Boar

Wild Boar sculpture (with cat) in my studio.

This is the grinding process that I have to do get the features of the animal to come forth.

It's looks and sounds a lot more brutal than it is. Actually, I'm being very careful.

Work In Progress III

Messy, messy studio!

This is the sanding phase where I carve all of the features and then sand them down.

Annie Chapman was found murdered in the backyard of 29 Hanbury Street, Whitechapel,

September 8, 1888. She was 47 years old and a widowed mother three

Altered, Image # 12

The passageway to the backyard at 29 Hanbury Street. Most backyard's where used as privies and tool sheds.

This is where Annie Chapman went with her killer to do business.

Instead he killed her and left her at the bottom of the staircase outside in the yard.
