I thought I wold come on here and post some photos from the show!
Some of these I did not take I am using some photos that other peoples friends and family took at the show. Others I took with my cell phone. I hope to use a nice camera and take a few more photographs before the show comes down.

Spring break crunch

It's been a very busy spring break. I have been putting in many hours getting everything gallery ready for the show. I still have a few things left but I am getting closer.

I have five of the melting photos from Underneath mounted on 20" x 30" mounts I made for them.

I also finished my miniature melting cow heads which is called Faux Bovinae. It features a series of five wax cow heads mounted to wood and melted in progression. One non melted and on the other end one very melted. I plan to hang them rather high up so that they are looking down/the viewer is looking up at them.

Mounting boards in progress

Wood mounts cut, routed, primed, and painted

Cow heads arranged so you can see them all at once. Top one is not melted, bottom right is most melted.

from least melted to most melted

Test hung on wall to make sure everything is sturdy, The closest cow is the most melted.

Momentum OKC

Momentum was very fun. It was held at the Oklahoma City Farmers Market. There were several artists there that I knew from OSU. There was live music, food trucks, and lots of interesting people and art. My piece ended up selling which was very nice. I also got to attend an artist tax workshop.

I went right from Momentum back to finishing up working on pieces for my senior Capstone Exhibition at OSU.

This is the postcard for the OSU senior capstone show. It features images from all 9 of
the artists in the show.
Here is the back of the postcard for my show it features a close up of my more recent cow painting as well as the date and time of the reception.
