New workshop coming up this Saturday, April 11th, 2015: Graphite drawing and silver leaf

This workshop focuses on the study of various elements of your choice: birds, landscapes, botanical elements, etc., using graphite drawing combined with silver leaf for a great effect. For drawing we will use graphite and water soluble graphite on wood panels. The wood panels are prepared with layers of plaster for a great visual effect.  You are welcome to bring your own imagery to draw from: landscapes, various botanical elements, birds etc.

Please visit the workshop page for more info and sign-up!

A recent commission, The Lamb of God, is mainly a graphite drawing, acrylic and silver leaf on wood panel, measuring 42×42 in.

John 1:29, it happens to be one of my favorites bible verses, so moving – it was a perfect subject.

I documented the stages and below you can see the steps the artwork went through – I always love to see the process, so I thought you might like it as well.

An original artwork, a diptych: graphite drawing, acrylic on plaster and wood panel, each panel measuring 14″x14″ and 1″ deep, inspired from a beautiful and meaningful Bible passage: Isaiah 55:8-9 that reads:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

The same text is used on the second panel.

Inspired from Byzantine iconography, the icon of Blessed Mother with Jesus as a child is a mixed media artwork: water soluble graphite, acrylic and silver leaf on wood panel, measuring 18″x12″ and 1″ deep.
Just as in byzantine iconography (more a black and white version) the contrast between
the materials used and the treatment of the face next to the light reflecting
silver leaf, very much like earth and light, creates very a beautiful and meaningful contrast,
summing up our human condition.
