It's been awhile since I did a landscape without any figures.  Brings me back to that assignment with Mark about color and how things go back and come forward.  It was a very frustrating project because I had never though about color that way, but fortunately I learned a lot from it (though I will never fully understand his souped-up color wheel and theories about it).  I was worried that I broke the space too evenly (1/3 1/3 1/3 from top to bottom), but I actually ended up liking it that way.

Here's the piece I did for Mark junior year.  It's funny how I was trying to solve the problem of perspective in such a mathematical way back then.  Now that I work digitally, it's more of a gut feeling.

An interior piece for the children’s book I’m working on.  I needed some reference for how to make the sparks, so I checked out my old teacher’s painting of an uppercut.

Drew a face, drew a brain, then I came up with an idea... talk about working backwards.

"Savant-like skills may be latent in everyone and have been stimulated in people by directing low-frequency magnetic pulses into the brain's left hemisphere, which is thought to deactivate this dominant region (in at least 90% of right-handed people) and allow the less dominant right hemisphere to take over, allowing for processing of savant-like tasks"-wikipedia!
