Pestilence Rides Out

This is a 10″x 10″ cut paper diorama.

These are such strange days, and I hope this passes soon. I hope you and yours stay safe and healthy. I hope we all survive Pestilence.

Four Horsemen Family Portrait

I love this oval frame. I’ve been saving it for a while, and decided to revisit my horse people. The background is acrylic paint, and Death glows in the dark, as usual.

It’s 12″ tall.

Where Two Worlds Touch

Greenbelt Gallery

I am very happy to be a part of the show  Where Two Worlds Touch: Drawing and Sculpture by Mary Baum, Jim Doran and Annie Farrar

Three artists explore edges and portals connecting physical and metaphysical worlds.

The show runs from August 25 through October 28, and gallery hours are: M-Sa, 9pm – 10pm. Su, 9am – 7pm.

I like both of my colleague’s work in the show. It was a good match. Annie’s work, in particular, deserves close study, as I hope you’ll see.

I’m particularly proud of this show, because I’m debuting my large drawings (the longest is 20′ and the tallest is 10′ 5″). I’ve also integrated a comic, and the map of the Land of the Dead ties all the pieces together into a single narrative. It was very satisfying to make, and to see assembled.

The Four Horsemen

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse remain a favorite theme since my first diorama.

I found this “painting” at a local used “painting” store.

I liked the shadow box frame, and I couldn’t pass up returning the riders to their rides as they ride out.
