Meat Tray Block Print

Sketch was pressed into styrofoam meat tray by laying sketch on meat tray and going over it with a ball point pen.  Then a popsicle stick (wooden icecream stick) was used to press down areas of foam meant to print white.  I was inspired to develop some textures that were not in the plan. Then I rolled Windsor Newton tube watercolor out with a sponge roller onto the meat tray.  I pulled the first print from that using paper from a sketch book.  Pressed the paper on with my hands.

Eric and the Rocking Horse

This is an oil painting done with brush on stretched canvas.  This is a repainting of one I lost in a fire.  I have worked on it for a couple of years.  It is very hard for me to do a painting over. Even so it is different.  A tighter closer view.
