Here’s a panel I’ve been working on for a couple weeks now. It’s my interpretation of the crazy & wonderful painting above the bar at The Rite Spot. We’re having a group show there in a couple months organized by @greermcgettrick and every piece in the show will pay homage to that painting. If you haven’t been to The Rite Spot, you’re missing out.
Finished soldering window 4 today and I feel like it deserves a bit of a backstory. A large amount of glass used in this panel came from a man cleaning out his garage in Redwood City. His wife was a stained glass artist and she passed away recently. When I went to pick it up he was really, really nice and offered to throw in a lot more than was advertised on craigslist. This piece is dedicated to that couple.
Finally got my stained glass set up, set up!
Here’s my most recent panel - I’ve been keeping this one under wraps because it was a surprise BUT i just spilled the beans! This panel references a quick lil sketch I finished a few months back.
Here’s a progress photo of my newest window :) I hope to finish up within the next couple weeks.
Couple weeks into my new window. Its so difficult making progress when I only have a 3.5 hours a week to dedicate to glass works. Hopefully the tide will change and I’ll be able to spend more time in the studio.
Finally finished preliminary sketch for my next stained glass window. It doesn’t look like much now but just wait! More pictures to come…
This past week has been a test of endurance! Wednesday I finished my first stained glass window, Thursday night I worked on a 3 hour long pose of Tendai and topped the evening off with my friend Natalie at the Lone Palm. Then I tended bar at the 500 club Friday night, attended a wedding in Oakland Saturday, worked happy hour at the 5 on Sunday and started Monday morning off with a triptych of 15 minute drawings. Tomorrow I officially start my second window! more pictures to come :)
