My latest series “The Glass Chronicles” is an exercise in seeing how many times removed I can continue to create artwork based on a single image. From the original photograph of broken windshield glass scattered on a sidewalk I have created a realistic oil painting, six stylized acrylic paintings, a silk-screen print edition, twelve fabric pieces, and an unrelated side project (more on that later).  Each new artwork is used as the reference for the next one and the different mediums are allowed to express their own “voice”.  “The Glass Chronicles” will continue to evolve as there is no predetermined ending.
