Finally Uploading some things

This semester has kept me remarkably busy, but now that we're slowing down I can slowly get some of my work posted.

The piece done here was a personal piece created for a show about the use of text in art.  The text I chose was a chemical formula (C18H19NOS), which was painted in acrylic in the shape of a binturong, then the animal itself was painted over top with light ink washes.  The canvas used was a recycled canvas of some freshman still life that had been discarded, over which I created a light blue field. bright orange of the original painting still shows through in some places.

The actual concept is very personal and I will not go into detail here but if you are interested we can have a discussion through email or IM.
