2 paintings from the spokane ballet studio



3 birds 21x13cm


ballerina #1
my cousin sara morrison donally choreographed the dance and taught the dancers.  note the size of these paintings, i think they are nearly miniatures and were painted for the most part with spider hair brushes with only a few bristles per brush. i miniaturized my self and worked on scaffolding built by my 5 year old out of legos which are not very comfortable.

new years day at my sister's house

ryan in the parlor 34x55cm
there is something 19th century about my sister's house, perhaps because it was built then but then everybody pulls out their electronic devices and it's very 21st century except for the ghost of classic rock filtering in from behind the lathe and plaster.
