Oh, Yeeaaaa...

Working on some new pieces in watercolor...needing a break from the oil paint for a bit. I want to play around with the relationship between the subject and its surroundings. Thinking about portraying them as one continuous plane.

To frame or not to frame...

So, I started putting these elaborate frames on all my pieces. I love the way they signify my untraditional work, and at the same time, my work mocks the frames. This makes for an interesting conflict. The intention behind the frames is actually to further the concept of tangibility, reenforcing that these are products. I'm receiving mixed reviews..."framing is so taboo"..."nobody frames art anymore" on and so forth. I don't think my pieces work quite as well without the frames, hmm...what to do, what to do. KEEP!
