Wish me luck! AMB Sports has partnered with Savannah College of Art and Design to commission public art from local artist for the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The coming stadium will be home to the Atlanta Falcons and the new MLS franchise Atlanta United FC. I’ve submitted samples and my artist statement for consideration. I didn’t tell the kids. I think my two high school soccer players will be more excited than I am if I’m accepted! #famoussoccermom
Finished! 12″×12″ oil on canvas “Drowning in Neptune”. Tied to the story of Neptune (Poseidon)’s wife Amphetrite. While Zeus’wife, the powerful Hera, plays a prominent role in Greco-Roman mythology, Amphetrite is all but lost to history. She is drowned (metaphorically) out by the strength of her husband’s story. Women do this to themselves in relationships all the time even today 4,000 years later. I’m loving the new water effect I created using tinted paint thinner. I often find it difficult to use techniques that offer very little control.
