The Gem Mine - a work in progress!

This is a piece I've had on my backburner for the past few months, which is about to get bumped up a couple levels. It is my tribute to Dr. Seuss - specifically as an homage to his piece Minor Cat Miner In A High Yield Emerald Mine (which can be found in the book, The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss. So far I haven't found a good image of it online.) This preview is a quick shot from a webcam - I'm excited for when this piece will be ready for more proper presentation.

I have some plans in store for this.

Coming Into Focus 7-9

Today I sat down by Lake Merritt, listened to the birds and npr, and said to myself, "No more dawdling on this ninth piece. Let's get it done."

So I got it done.

So now that I finished it, I can show the third triptych of my Coming Into Focus series.

Here are my portfolio links to all three:
CIF 1-3
CIF 4-6
CIF 7-9
