With the acquisition of an Epson 2200 seven color ink jet printer, Bob
has added the capability to produce digital prints on paper up to 13"
x 60". The use of computer technology discourages some collectors
who prefer "hand pulled" prints, but the digital medium offers
results that simply cannot be achieved by hand methods and allows creation
of striking original art within reach of even modest budgets. Visit the
Giclee page for more details and available digital prints. Featured here
is the latest creation, Prairie Storm.
in the Studio
Shown here is a new acrylic/collage, Masquerade: The Patriot, the
first in the Masquerade series of social commentaries. These paintings
will explore the many artificial concepts created by the economically
and politically powerful and fostered among the middle and lower classes
for their own benefit. The painting is in two layers and features a background
of collaged newspaper articles and several three dimensional elements.
Other subjects to be addressed include athletes and CEOs.
