I put the “A” in “S.T.E.A.M.” !

Just over a week ago, while recovering from surgery, I received an invitation to participate in Southern Utah University’s annual S.T.E.M. festival, which highlights Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This year they added “arts” to the acronym. As it turns out, I was the only artist there, and the 3500-or-so k-8 schoolkids who attended over the event’s two days seemed both tickled and mystified by my technique.



On such short notice, in my rather “loopy” state of mind, I managed to

make a display of my general technique.







Over the course of the event I managed to start four paintings and essentially finish two of them, though they require a bit of touching up in the quiet of my studio, “Dancing Cubas” and “Louisiana II”


Meanwhile, “Sevier Lake Again”  and  “Idaho” are still in their starting phases.


Once each piece is finished I’ll put ’em on jfwoa.com for you and everybody to see!

Happy Halloween and everything else!
