The Cedarburg Plein Air Painting Event has come to a close. I did not win any awards, however I am pleased to announce that I sold all three of my paintings. The award-winning paintings can be found on the Plein Air Blog.
Here are two out of my three paintings (the photograph of the third unfortunately did not work out)

"Coffee Mold I" Oil 48"x48"
My artistic focus is going down a bit of a fungi path. I am especially interested in the beauty and diversity of mold. I am a huge coffee drinker and when I, admittedly, leave my mugs around the house I learned to love the unique patterns of mold that occur. This will be a complete series of coffee mold, and this is the very first painting of the series! I hope elevating mold to the fine art status will allow you to see the beauty of what is otherwise considered gross.

What are your bad habits? Do you have odd mannerisms or daily rituals? Share and you may get unattractively immortalized through paint. I won't judge, weird is good. Weird is fascinating. We are all weird humans.
