Crystal Tree Castles

so... finally have some new stuff to post. had a critique today.  I think it went well, the prof seems really into my stuff, and i have to say i fucking love this class (alternative painting mediums)  the prof is Shirley Yanover ... she did those cats on the poles in kensington market.

anyways.   I painted with fluorescent paint on agate rock slices, then did nettings for all the rocks and wove them between branches...  its pretty fun.  awkward mounting it though.
and taking it on the TTC was sort of a nightmare, not so bad getting it to school but getting it home during rush hour was AWFUL  people have very little respect.  i took the subway up to st clair that was so awful i decided NOT to bother with the street car and walked the rest of the way in the rain.   Had a giant umbrella my mom bought me (pretty much the only cool thing she has ever gifted me) and awkward walked home.   GOOD TIMES   ... the piece got so wet that it lost some paint and i had to retouch when i got home.
all i well now, its on my wall.


  1. I love, love, LOVE these! Can I buy one off of you if they're ever available?? :D

  2. yes absolutely.. these ones are kinda stuck on this... i am going to try to sell it at TOAE if i get in. but i'd be happy to do a smaller one JUST for you if you'd like
