I had a great deal of fun shooting Shannon again, and her body art makes her one of my very favorite models.
Shannon and I met at my first Dr. Sketchy’s event back in January, and I got to see what life is like on the other side of the lens for a change. Shannon’s experience really came in handy when she was giving me advice on posing, but I have to say I much prefer being behind the camera when she is in front of it.
The second time we shot together, it poured the rain in buckets, and we wound up doing some really fun pin-ups inside. Shannon is an awesome pin-up model.
This, however, is the sort of thing I live to shoot.
You just never know who the real angels are until you look a little deeper.
Take it slow. Relax.
Taking time to consider the moment
Another out-take from a project I’m working on that is just too pretty not to share.
At first I thought this might be the shot that I would use in a project on which I’m working, but after careful consideration, I’ve chosen another from this shoot. Nevertheless, this shot is too pretty to keep to myself.
Life is short. Take time.
New editions for my collection of old books. A big biology score.
Holiday dinner for friends and family.
Clear and frosted glass work together in this black and white still-life sketch for a forthcoming full-size model piece.
The first print of this self-portrait piece (18″ X 12″) was awarded Best of Show at the 2011 All Student Art Show at The University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and is now on display in the University Union as part of the permanent collection of the Ann Flack Boseman Gallery.

Ms. Brennan’s partial comments:
“Immediately attracted to William Tell reference and bodily expression of the subject. Is he staring at a drawn bow and arrow? He’s anxious! I’m anxious for him! Then to discover the humorous title and reference to Magritte – what a lovely surprise for this viewer! I laughed right out loud alone with the work!!! Well conceived, executed and presented! And the lighting even reminiscent of a different time and age, although a contemporary subject…”
Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Lust, Pride, Sloth, and Wrath. Traditionally, these are collectively named the Seven Deadly Sins.
Telling the whole story in a still-life, without ever saying anything, this piece is meant to give you the bare bones, and let you fill in the details.
