I'm a Libra too.

Unfortunately, my vision for a calendar might not come to being. I am very busy as a college professor and department head, a consultant in the national environmental movement, a businessman, a writer, and still trying to do art, while balancing all that with raising my family (whew). I'm not complaining, I'm just swamped. :)

But it gives me inspiration to work on a 2011 calendar a little earlier.

Hmmm I just repeated myself in my other answer to you (about all my work)

Still, this will be an exciting year for all of us in art and life :)

Hmmmm, I have never thought of that. Will try it one of these days. Thanks for the compliment and the suggestion.

But I did try blowing the images up with a projector and see how the patterns and images fall on people and surfaces . . . quite haunting

PS

The scorpion looks so fantasy-like, it's very inspiring! Her armor has a very neat design also.

Thanks,

This work (along with Cancer, Libra and Pisces) were the ones that took me a while to make.

I didn't want to make just a scorpion (or a crab, a scale or two fishes) which would not be as impactful as the others. Hence the scorpion becomes a form of armor (or guard) to a goddess image.

Your work always looks like it has been worked on for hours, you know.

It's quite unique!

My many thanks Ida,

Do take time to view the rest of the Zodiac, and I also invite to view the works of my students at:

Salamat (thanks) at Samuli (until then),

PS

You have a very eclectic range of media that you work with. That shows very much promise in your work, especially at your age. Keep up there great work. :)
