Bird of Paradise - Undergraduate work at FSU

Acrylic on canvas; 2005

One of my favorite artistic endeavors is transitioning work across different mediums. Always having a love for photography, I find it challenging to recreate certain stand-out images with painting.
I originally took this photograph of the most vibrant bird of paradise in Sicily. I then experimented with under-painting to "pull" the leafed background into the canvas while "pushing" the bird out.

Obstacles - Undergraduate work at FSU
Acrylic on canvas; 2006

This painting holds dear to me because it is representative of my own personal obstacle. I aimed to develop a piece completely from my imagination in a surreal style.

Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica - Undergraduate work at FSU

Acrylic on canvas; 2005

I composed this painting from two photographs I took on a trip to Costa Rica with friends. This was our last stop for a bite to eat before making the grueling and unpaved journey north to San Jose to fly back out.
The view was beautiful over the cliff. I had to shoot the inside (under the covered area) and then the outside view in order to capture the scene acurately.
