The diverse sampling of works brings the following artists together within one space: Kiki Smith, Judith Schaechter, Marc Petrovic, Dafna Kaffeman, Sybille Peretti, Mark Zirpel, Frida Fjellman, Karen Willenbrink-Johnson/Jasen Johnson, Jane Rosin, Tim Tate and Beth Lipman.

on the light table

One: The demo posted some time ago.  Still pending.... (along with the Cold Genius albatross debacle)
The second image:  two redheads I started the other day.  (the lefterly one is a revisit of a head used in a piece called "Mother and Child"--its one damn difficult image to translate from drawing to glass for some reason...)
Third down: Another version of the crouching figure from the last post (which was a study--a small piece intended to lead to something more "grand" at some point). I've had many version of that crouching figure in my sketch files--this new one is the original version with her arms raised in the manner of one responding to one hell of a fact the file is called "migraine halo".
Finally: The blue engraving is "Mad Meg".  This is a Saint-Just turqoisey blue flash that just begs to be engraved.

new piece

untitled...more than a study but a real small one...16" x 21". Glass paint, silverstain.
Originally, the crouching figure was to be chopped up and used as scraps in "Self Portrait of Someone Else" but I couldn't bring myself to do that (and I had enough material already anyway).
