Sweet! J.C. Leyendecker book came in today. Looking to add some ‘movement’ to my next series of 2013 paintings and studying his brushwork might be a clue. :D

Once a woodcarver, Chinese artist Wen Fuliang lives in Shaanxi province where he transforms chicken, goose, and duck eggshells into incredible (and incredibly fragile) works of art. 
Wen Fuliang has practiced the delicate art of eggshell carving for over ten years. The work is done “using a fine diamond bit on an electric rotary tool. The artist sketches a design on the shell, which has been carefully emptied of the yolk and egg white with a syringe. They must then gently but securely hold the egg shell in one hand, the rotary tool in the other and slowly carve away the design in an incredibly time-consuming and skillful process.”

Twelve Days of “Steam Chunk” – Day Eleven

This one’s going on a unique 36”x72” sized canvas that I’m very excited to work with.

Tomorrow’s the last one!

Twelve Days of “Steam Chunk” – Day Ten

image

This is the last of the line-work prepped for small(er) canvases – 24”x36”. The last two are big’ns.

Twelve Days of “Steam Chunk” – Day Nine

Shwoo! Well, I guess we dodged that particular end of the world scenario eh folks? Back to our regular scheduled postings.

On this particular piece I used an hourglass rather than the usual watch or clock. It was a good move. I also tried to shoehorn a sundial into this series but it didn’t make the cut. 

Twelve Days of “Steam Chunk” – Day Eight

Today is suppose to be the end of the world according to … some ancient … something-something Bigfoot … I think.  So I guess there won’t be any further postings. Smoke’em if you got’em! Let’s make like a nail and get hammered!

However.

Another post tomorrow if the impending apocalypse is postponed – yet again. 

Twelve Days of “Steam Chunk” – Day Seven

I … got nothing.

Another one tomorrow.

Twelve Days of “Steam Chunk” – Day Six

Half way there, intermission … lets go grab some popcorn!

Another one comes tomorrow.

"Steam Chunk?" WTF (what the fly) is Steam Chunk?

While it isn’t quite apparent right now since this is just the line-work, there will be a nod to Steampunk with elements and colors on the final paintings. Steam Chunk is a play on words but also the “chunk” correlates to the biomass these ‘clocks’ run on.
