Duck Pot

Duck Pot (Greenware)
Approx. 10x6 in.

As part of my secondary art education program, I needed to go back and take some ceramic classes.  I'm learning the basics of ceramics and have had fun experimenting a bit.  This is my first attempt at a pinch pot and decided to try incorporating some Minnesota themed relief sculpture around it,.  I'm really excited to move beyond pottery and learn more about the sculptural processes of working with clay.  This pot will eventually be fired and glazed for a grade.

Hidden in the Light

Hidden in the Light
Oil on canvas

This is a painting that I started several years ago and just finished up last week for the Sears Dixie Invitational held in St. George.  Although I haven't done much in the way of wildlife paintings over the past twenty years, it is an area where my first interests in art were developed as a kid.  I still really enjoy wildlife subjects.
