Satyr 3

Finally finished the 3rd Satyr painting.  It is 18x24 acrylic on canvas, it took a while to finish, but I think it came out ok.  I still want to do more Satyrs, but Tim wants me to do a Medusa, so I think I'll take a break from the black and white and do something with more color next.   

Book Cover

A friend of mine runs the Northland Journal magazine, which is a local history newsletter that covers the Northeast Kingdom here in Vermont.  He is currently writing a book that will explore the history of Jay Peak the ski mountain.  He asked me to help with the book cover, and here is the first draft that we have so far.  The first was done as a landscape, but I think the book will end up in portrait form.  The idea was to show a melding of the old and new, he has a lot of great old pictures from the early days when the mountain was first being built.
