I submitted these three digital paintings made on my iPad Pro using the app Art Rage. This was a group I helped found in 2009 and we held two big international conventions in New York City in 2010 and 2011. A group in San Francisco assumed the group and changed the name. Except for local events, international confabs are on-line. They have an active local presence that includes art, music, film, graphics, and photography made on digital mobile devices.
Story Mask 2.
Three-dimensional mask, My design, hand made and painted. High-fire porcelain. 10″H x 8W x 5D (25.5cm x 7.9 x 12.7)
The Cry is my first bronze cast sculpture. The very talented artists at Bronzarts in Sarasota, Florida managed to capture 99% of the detail in this very complex piece. Stevan Kuyper was the mold maker and Wayne Dyer did the cleaning, welding and detail work after the pour. They both were excellent to work with and are very knowledgable and informative about the whole process. The Cry is a bronze version of my wood sculpture The Cry. The bronze version is 8″ (20cm) tall, 11″ (28cm) with the granite base. I am currently seeking funding for a 6-foot version and buyers for the smaller version. The mold can support an edition of 20.

These are colored sketches for a new porcelain mask project. It will be similar to the Mask as Self Portrait project, but are intended to be “story masks.” They are made using Aquarelle pencils, water brush, dip pens and color India inks.
