"Dance Till Dawn"

This figure composition was taken directly from a vase. A sensitive friend told me a story about what was going on in the picture. I love the way the woman's hand obscures the man's face.

"The Goddess Of Wisdom"

This view of ancient Athens was painted from an old German engraving. I added the dawn/ sunset atmosphere with Pegasus, and Athena. She holds a vase of olive oil and an olive branch. I will be showing it along with a few others at C.W.R.U. My design class will also be showing some Aeneid themed works. The classics department is hosting an all day, 12 hour reading of Virgil's Aeneid: April 2nd 8:30 AM-8:30 PM, Sages Cafe, Crawford Hall.

Case Western Reserve University's wild party time

I've been invited to a Classics Outing / Symposium / Party. It feels good to know I'm not alone. Any kind of classical reference is scoffed at in most of our fine art colleges. It really was not cool to be showing any kind of fine academic drawing skill when I was an undergraduate.

Galerie Polysemie

If you happen to get to Marseilles, France, I'm exhibiting some of the Greek vase cube paintings seen on this blog at a new gallery: The gallery is at 63 Cours Puget, near the Palais de justice.
