Still Life Painting Perishables Project

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),
I have been working on an exercise to paint things that are perishable.  However, in my original composition, there were too many individuals wanting equal attention.  And that is not how a society runs.  [Sad, but true.]   So, I decided to put the focus more into the area of high chroma and hung some garbage bags over my models in such a way that the left side was more in shadow.  I am curious to see how the final painting turns out.

Bitcoins and Hope

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),
I have been giving myself various “exercises” in painting in an effort to keep learning.  That is true of all of my artworks, actually.  This latest painting was created using a very limited palette.  I also wanted to leave a lot of the campitura showing through the image.  I am also slowly trying to move into a bit more into the realm of creating my own environments.  I do not know always how to explain some of the thoughts in my head, but know that I am in the midst of a change.  I hope you enjoy the ride with me.

Now Accepting Bitcoins for Borsheim Artworks

Well, something new for 2014:  I will be accepting Bitcoins as legal tender for my artworks, from drawings and paintings to sculpture, and even giclée.

And if that is not “weird” enough for you, I have given a wee bit of a facelift to my Web site.  Fewer clicks to see more art sooner is one major change.
But also, I organized the arts by subject matter, as well as by media to help you find what interests you faster.  I would love any feedback (good or not so good), if you have some.
Here is the table of contents page for 2-dimensional art:
