"Antique Bottle," 24 X 30" oil on canvas
This site is specifically dedicated to more experimental work and past themes, as well as work done for my M.F.A. program at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. The entire program has been done online. The program is not for the faint hearted. I worked on it for over 7 years while teaching high school art full time. I completed the M.F.A. in 2013. I retired from teaching June 2017. " Antique Bottle" is done in the style of Chuck Close. I love painting this way. Every square of the painting is like a mini abstract painting but together create the new larger image. This is fun!!!!
