I started this large collage piece a few years ago, and recently picked it up again! It’s nice to have it done.
Ever wondered what suminagashi actually is, or how to make one for yourself? Maternal Mitochondria (Isabel W.S. and Miriam Sagan) will be doing a hands-on demonstration this Saturday at the Japan Festival from 11am-3pm! Come and say hi, draw some sumi, all while eating delicious takoyaki. The festival is at the Convention Center and admission is $5 for adults, free for children under 12. The festival itself runs from 9:30am-5pm. See you there!
At the risk of spamming y’all with pictures of this carving, I won an award for it at SFCC! And it will be up in their gallery space for the rest of the summer. I’m super happy and grateful to the woodworking department for nominating me! It’s a great show, hope everyone gets a chance to see it.
This carving will be in a second show this summer, the Art & Design Showcase in the main gallery at Santa Fe Community College. Come check out all that the art and design students have to offer! It’s usually packed with a tremendous amount of variety and talent. The opening is May 3rd from 4:30-6pm, and the show will be up until August.
Current work in progress! Carvings tend to look like blocks of wood right up until they’re finished, when suddenly they look like something else… This is actually very close to being done! I’ve gotta finish the line work, background texture, and undercutting so it looks more like the bee has just landed. Then painting with watercolors or ink…
