Nightmares & Lullabies: Process & Progress

I'm excited to announce that I have been invited to contribute an piece of artwork to an upcoming show, titled "Nightmares & Lullabies," at the Hive Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. I am hard at work on a new piece for the show and am delighted to share my process & progress with you!

I always begin with a sketch (on the right).
And in this case, since I am creating a dimensional mixed media collage,
I've translated the sketch into pieces of 1/8 inch foam.
Here is the prepared canvas with the foam gessoed into place.
And here is a sneak peek at the color-in-progress!
