Three days off this week, so I’m putting my projects into a list form so I can keep track of the progress I’m making on the Reclaimed series. Part of the list is a photo shoot to record all of the art I’ve done lately. Ill be ready for more galleries very soon!
Working on another part of the Reclaimed series tonight. The guitar im using has a life of its own; I cant wait to add to it.
Created with Colored Pencil, sharpie, and Oil & Acrylic paint pens. Hand Illustrated.
Winner announced April 1st; wish me luck
Part three of reclaimed is in the works; pictures posted soon

I am the Record Player.
With the help of Ken, I was able to build a shadow box for one of the Reclaimed series projects- the crown of the collection. A 1890-1920? era German Stradivarius copy. Beautiful; full of character and signs of being well loved & played. The shadow box is covered in red silk on the inside; the corners filled with re-purposed gold rope from Crown Royal bags. The background is a piece of antique tin ceiling, salvaged from a building renovation in Petoskey, with character all its own. Its looking good so far….I cannot wait to mount it.
I find that I am reclaiming MYSELF as I work on these projects; truly refreshing. Lexi is a huge catalyst for my art. I cant thank her enough.
