My dad and his cigar

I revisited a digital painting I did of my dad in 2016, a post of which you can see here. I made some structural adjustments in Procreate and videotaped the reduction of an effect I had added in iColorama. It was a Fathers Day urge. Here’s how it came out:

In-between Space: Piedmont Revelers Revisited

An old piece of mine, the “Piedmont Revelers,” was selected back in early May (2022) for
The Space Between” Digital Art Online Exhibit – at the Cape Cod Art Center. The emphasis on “in-between space” intrigued me: “The challenge we were asking you to think about is the space in between. Some may have interpreted it literally as the space between objects. Where the space is implied within the context of an image, for example a cityscape, in between buildings. Perhaps a landscape or seascape that represents a meditative space. Or the image may describe a very personal journey where you enter a transitional space, abandoning the familiar in search of new ways of being. All interpretations were considered.” See my Art Shows page.

33 Extra Minutes with Ed Greb

Professor Edward M. Greb, June 16, 1933 ~ January 18, 2021 (age 87)
See the Sketch Club stats:
I got to spend an additional 33 minutes on my iPad in Sketch Club with Dr. Greb this Spring morning. He played quite an influential role in my personal growth and early professional development. His Introduction to Anthropology course there at Washington & Jefferson College was my introduction to anthropology in real life. In his syllabus he quoted Don Quijote de La Mancha, which I was reading in Spanish for the first time that same semester. He gracefully escorted me into the early stages of adulthood.

I was looking at videos on O Coruña (La Coruña), España, and when I saw this sculpture of Galician novelist, poet, playwright, and journalist, Álvaro Cunqueiro Mora, my mind wandered, and I felt like executing a rendition of it in Sketch Club on an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil.: CLICK HERE to see the statue.
