Malarkey Illumination by one-rook
Malarkey Illumination
Finally got it painted.  The show I took it to was a bust in terms of people actually buying things, but I got a lot of compliments, so...I guess that's nice.

I literally painted myself into a corner with this this at first.  Well...I mean, I guess the "corner" was metaphorical.  But the paint was real!  I started out using green and orange, not really realizing how that would limit the palette choices, but I decided to just lean into it, and make the piece super Irish.  All green, orange, white, gold, tangled, messy, pretty - Ireland through and through.

Hope you like it!

Finally finished the inking on Illumination #2!  Very exciting!  Going to be painting and gilding it in the next couple weeks, and hopefully showing it at the Salt Fork River Arts Festival at the end of September!

Just a little commission.  A revamp of my Urnes wolf on slate piece that I did a while ago, modified to fit the fretboard of the client's ukulele.

This is a private commission piece.  Please don't use for any reason without talking to me first.

I'm an artist, I guess. Actually, most of the time I'm a graduate student, pursuing my doctorate in Sociology. I have a lot of fun with it. But I also can't seem to stay away from art, and it's been taking up more and more of my time.
I'm also a husband, a son, a brother, a friend to humans and animals, a music-lover, a beard enthusiast, and an all-purpose nerd.
I like other people. Feel free to strike up a conversation sometime.
My dear sister has finally arrived on deviantART, and is showcasing her enormous talent for all things whimsical and strange and lovely.  Go check out her stuff at PlumAndLeather

Your light box tutorial is just what I've been looking for. I'm right near the end of finishing my basement (at my age I'm not sure why). The main room has 2 small windows. My original idea was to try to purchase 2 old stained glass windows and mount them just in front of each window. Problem is, the cost of old stained glass windows is very high. Also I live in northern Alberta Canada. In the winter we get very limited late day sun, it's dark by 5:00 which wouldn't show the stained glass very well. In the summer we're outside until bed because that is when there is light until late combined with nice weather. When I saw your tutorial I realized I could construct my own whatever, install it into the window well and voila all problems solved . The second benefit/thank you is from my wife. She really didn't want me taking up learning to do stained glass which would further cut into our time together (she wasn't keen when I asked if she wanted to). So you have now saved me time money and kept harmony in my marriage. What more can I ask!  Thank you.
