Banjo Transfer

So I just got back from Penland School of Crafts a few weeks ago where I took a collage/photo/paint/transfer class. (I will post that work soon). Wyatt was excited about the work I did there and I guess I am too. So we did a xerox transfer onto his banjo. He is super in love with it. He wants to do transfers on everything now. He keeps saying "it was just a piece of paper!" I guess transfers have some kind of magical quality to them.

LSO Donation

I am donating this photo transfer to the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra Fundraiser: The Bond Bash, heralding the 50th anniversary of the most famous spy in the world: Bond, James Bond. The event will include an elegant dinner, dancing, a live auction, and 007-themed decor in the transformed setting of the Purdue Memorial Union's North Ballroom. The evening will also feature a VIP pre-party and Art Heist featuring paintings, photographs, pottery, and more from local artists.

Little Head is a photo transfer created by hand using the Dass transfer method onto watercolor paper. It is 11 by 14 inched framed. This photograph was taken with my iPhone and minimally manipulated in photoshop. It is an image of a small cabbage I grew in my garden and then photographed on the kitchen table using window light. It almost makes me laugh to combine a handmade process like a photo transfer with the high-tech capture method using an iPhone. Oh how the photographers methods are always changing, but there will always be something beautiful about a handmade one of a kind print.
