Betta Fish

I’m enjoying painting betta fish. I’m thinking of painting one in every color of the rainbow, but historically speaking I rarely finish such endeavors.

Mural at The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Complex

The mural at The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Complex in Atlantic City, NJ is the largest I’ve ever painted. It is approximately sixty feet long and ten feet high. Due to its dimensions, photographing the piece was particularly difficult.

This is my second mural in conjunction with Stockton’s Center for Community Schools. The mural was made possible by the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, the Noyes Museum of Art, Lowe’s, and the Atlantic County Board of Education. Special thanks to the African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey for aiding in the research process. The mural depicts Black history of Atlantic City. Sarah Spencer Washington, Jacob Lawrence, Art Dorrington, Johanna Leseign, John Henry “Pop” Lloyd, and James Usry are some of the figures included in the work.

Time Flies

It seems like only yesterday that I told you about the Noyes Museum‘s weekly drawing club. Well, the Drawing Room is now over a month old. Starting in June we will be experimenting with persepctive and interior space. Feel free to join us on Wednesday nights. Below are select drawings from my most recent three sessions.

On a side note, a lot of people have been asking about my Facebook project. I have not given up! Spring and summer are my busy seasons. I promise to pick back up right where I left off come fall.
