This was a mural painted by Stefan Knapp which was painted on the side of Alexander's Department Store, in Paramus, NJ. At 200' wide x 50' tall...this was the largest mural in 1960. I can remember looking at this mural from the back of my mother's station wagon as a kid. Too bad it's history now...

This is a portrait of Bob Dylan that I worked on last semester t school. I was really trying for a
multi-dimensional painting this time around. For the background, I used an image transfer technique that I found on the web using gel medium, and Laser-print photos. I'm still gettng used to the process, but I have to say that I am fairly pleased with the result. After I had the background down, I painted in the figure. Finally I added the guitar strings, and the hands. I would still like to work on this piece a little more....

My studio is finally up and running (all thanks to my sister who recently moved out!) But anyway, I am out of the crammed basement, and have some room to move around a bit. I feel that my work increased since the move into my studio....and I hope that will continue throughout 2009.
