sketchbook recap

found rainbows

i am in the process of collecting/crowd sourcing images of rainbows that are posted on facebook or emaiiled to me from people’s phones. they need not be taken with a phone camera, any amatuer, unstaged snap works for me. i am interested in the way we venerate the rare occurance of a rainbow in the sky. through this project i’ve come to notice that while we often can’t capture the complete beauty we are confronted with (i.e. the color isn’t as bright or the second rainbow doesn’t show up) we are driven to document the occurance anyway. another phenomena i’ve noted is the fact that the images of rainbows very rarely have people in them. i think of that as further evidence of the total delight we feel when experiencing the appearance of a rainbow.

a more realistic day in the studio.

and read a few books on professional practices, technique and conceptual development. they didn’t just sit there in a pile.  that would be crazy.

my work table was sagging under the weight of all my productivity.

 

in my imagination anyway.

wow, after a day like that i’m gonig to need an additional ware cart.

fun with florida plants.

one fun thing about my program is that we are required to take a class outside our area.  it usually ends up being something unique that informs our work.  since i consistently use nature as a source material and have a deep love if the plants, animals and ecosystems here in my home state if florida i was amped to take a botany course called northern florida flora.
