Father John Craft

I decided to try my hand at a formal portrait, and my friend, John Craft, happily obliged.  He is a fascinating man; he is a trial lawyer representing criminals for the state, the trombone player and business manager for the New Leviathan Oriental Fox Trot Orchestra, an Episcopal priest, and the father of five children, three grown and two teenagers.  Where he gets the time for all this, I have no idea!

On Fire!

This is an 8 1/2' T x 10 1/2' W muslin backdrop I made for Rick Delaup's "Bad Girls of Burlesque" show, which took place on May 31, 2014.  He envisioned something graphic which might incorporate flames and leopard.  I came up with the "silhouetted ladies" framing device to separate the two bold patterns.
