Main & Scio

Main and ScioThis is a 3 1/2' X 5 1/2' piece I've been working on that's up at the Workhouse Art Center at the moment.  It still seems a touch unfinished to me, so I may fiddle with it some more, maybe add some color.  Who knows..

I Fixed Our Staff Picture

Corrected Staff picture (White Elephant gift)
We had our annual Holiday/White Elephant party at work.  I framed our staff picture as my gift... after fixing it first of course.

My backup pic was an altered Comedy Bang Bang ad I'm quite proud of as well...

The Dying Gaul

Ricardo pointed out to our sketchcrawl group that The Dying Gaul was on temporary loan to the NGA, and gathered a bunch of us to go sketch it.  While the crowd around the sculpture was deep, everyone found a decent unobstructed view or two to draw from.

It is pretty interesting how unaware people can be of themselves as the step directly in front of another person looking at the same artwork.  I don't mean just those of us sketching (though I will admit it didn't help) but people who will stand so close to the sculpture itself that the 30 visitors behind them can't see a thing. Whatever. At least no one knocked him over...
