“Gourd Gone Bad with Embryos” 8x4.5” image size on 12x9” cardboard. Drawn using graphite with white pencil on the cardboard backing of a vintage tracing paper tablet. I love the tattered pieces of tracing paper left behind at the top of the cardboard and decided to leave them attached. I glued a few down to the cardboard with medium and let the rest splay out. Drawing side prepped with clear gesso and finished with a coat of matte medium. The back side retains part of the sticker from a long defunct Chicago art supply company. $175.00 + $12.00 shipping.

“Eye of a Necromancer-
Green Beetle”
Sold
“Eye of a Necromancer” Now available, faux fresco pieces of the famed, (and fictitious) collection of historical artifacts and oddities owned by the dark and mysterious Mr Victor W. Dankquart. Above each sculpted eye is painted the quarter moon mark, identifying the wearer as a necromancer, with a beetle below the eye thought to designate speciality. These fragments are assumed to have been parts of much larger murals which paid tribute to the magical talents of village necromancers. Retrieved during archaeological digs in exotic locales, they belonged to a civilization now known only to the sands of time.

Each faux fresco fragment is approximately 4x3” mounted on a 7x5” textured surface and set in a 8x6” black frame. Sculpted with polymer clay and wood they receive a stone and plaster texture, and are then painted using various acrylic products. Ready to hang and become part of your own collection of imagined history. $325.00.

“The Keeper” 7x5” acrylic on panel with reclaimed vintage frame, polymer clay bird skull and feathers. Painted from a sketchbook drawing this piece seemed to be a perfect match for my idea of reworking a rescued frame and adding a bird skull and feathers. The skull is molded from polymer clay and was glazed with multiple layers of acrylic glazes. The bird feathers were found on my dog walks through a local park. $395.00 + $25.00 shipping. US only.
