The 50th Hamilton Current regional art competition is a big - we mean a REALLY BIG - deal. Artworks from this year’s selected artists will be projected in wall-scale images on the Fitton Center’s exterior in an exciting new week-long outdoor digital presentation May 28 - June 4, 8:00pm - midnight.

pencil, India ink, acrylic paint, spray paint on stretched canvas. I start with a preliminary sketch, then move to canvas. I start with pencil and India ink. I then used spray paint to lay the background in. Followed by blocking in the figure with acrylic paint. Afterwards, I refine the image with layers of acrylics, colored pencil and spray paint. The piece is then cured with a spray matte varnish.

1. The Long Arm of the Law
24 x 24
Digital Painting using Procreate on ipad pro. Laser printed onto 80# mat paper., My vision was to create an image based on a crazy quilt motif. I made a painting in Procreate. After completing the painting, I copied and pasted it into another file. I manipulated the image, changed the sizes and colors, created new layers. Essentially, I created a digital collage.
2. Nine and 1/2 Minutes of Infamy
12 x 12
Watercolor paper, mono print plate, acrylic paint, Inspired by Andy Warhol and his silk screen portraits as well as one of his popular quotes (Everyone will be famous for 15 minutes). This work is a product of multi-processes. I started with layers of mono prints. I then hand painted some details and finished by mono printing the final bars of the prison.
