THE GAME ROOM
Tuesday Nights is the name of our class and The Game Room is where we meet when we are not together.
Got a idea that just can't wait...tell us about it.
You need to hash something out, maybe we can help.
Or maybe you just want to see what everybody else is up to.
Post links, post pictures, post questions or just ask one.
I teach through action and immersion. Just keep moving, contemplate later. In art, for me at least, there are times of rest and contemplation, and times of work. Art making is a time for work. It is the time to pull from the mental and make physical. Create a reality, a piece of art. For this the contemplative brain needs to move over, the art critic side isn’t even invited to the party. Learn to ask and answer your own questions on the move. The sooner I can get you making art the better. Get something done and then we have something to talk about.

In the beginning...there are parts, body parts
Stitched and Stuffed Muslin
I was originally going to use canvas but I realized
that canvas weight would be difficult to manipulate
when turning fabric and machine stitching. I decided
on muslin and then gesso'd pieces once stitched up.
The face will be sculpted, then painted.
All cloth pieces will be painted.
Each piece will be attached to each other.
Final display not resolved.
More to come...
