Mannequin Life is a ghostly still life that features a mannequin's torso. The open door and the floor, that seems to fall off, add a wonderful sense of mystery to an unusual still life. The mannequin seems to add a real figure to the scene and the light effect is startling.
This drawing was done with grease pencil on to limestone and then etched with different amounts of phospheric and nitrate acid. The stone was then rolled up with black and ink and put through a press that is only used for lithography.
My paintings have been seen throughout the United States in national, international, and group shows. I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene.
My best-selling print, "Reaching Out", was selected from over three million works of art on Fine Art America to be on the set of The Mindy Project and I appeared with my artwork on The Hour of Joy on FoxTV out of Roanoke on March 10th 2013 episode 5.
I live to paint and it is important to me to find homes for all of my creations. I have originals and prints in twenty-one states, Canada, Germany, and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art. Be sure to check out my YouTubes. Here is the address for my Beautiful Nude Series. http://youtu.be/vOyjIZ__lq4
