This series of 6 constitutes my first serious work with the setting sun. Each tessellation begins from photographs shot through my Canon AE1 35 mm at a prairie preserve in Bradley, Illinois. Exceptional prints of this work available at: www.christophershoup.zenfolio.com.
Amanda transferred jobs and became her high school’s art teacher. Around our house this past summer were art books, how-to-art books, art primers and other new art materials. I started to pick up the books, and then in my journal started to draw (again), and finally this past December I bought a nice set of graphite pencils. I’m inspired to work out many new ideas through drawing. 9 skulls and 9 ebony bars will be shown in a pop-up art gallery hosted by Paper Street Gallery in the city of Kankakee, Illinois on January 18.
