I don't often talk about my day job in my newsletter or my blog, but once in a while it's fun to let you know what fun I am having as the Public Art Administrator for Metro Transit. My job mostly consists of creating opportunities for other artists. On occasion there is little time or resource for a project and my artistic skills have to go into action. This was the case when the new council chambers were being opened at the newly renovated Heywood Offices in Minneapolis.
Never having worked for a transportation organization before, one of the things I have discovered that I like is the variety of vehicles used. Each vehicle has it's own design and details and I thought I would focus on this for a series of photographs to be on display in and around the new chambers. Here are some of the photographs from that series.

Description from Merchant:
For Paintings: Many of the still lifes of food are painted on cradled wood panels. The landscapes and all other paintings are painted on stretcheded 10 duck canvas. I make my own stretchers and wood panels in a wood shop attached to my studio. The wood substrate is made of pine or poplar and is cross-grained to prevent warping. The canvas and panels each receive three layers of gesso before being painted. After completion, each painting receives a protective varnish. The canvases, generally, have the images wrapped around the sides. I make my own canvases and panels to assure that, if framed and displayed properly, my paintings will last for generations.
For prints: All prints are on archival 100% cotton fine-art paper. The paper has a smooth natural texture, is a sturdy 15 mil. thick and uses no optical brightners. Printed with archival water-resistent inks that will not fade for a hundred years, when properly matted and framed.
