Hanging in Marble Canyon Lodge

I am always curious where and how my work will be hung by a collector.   While visiting friends at the put in point to the Grand Canyon earlier this month, I was able see some of my work hung on the wall in the main dining area of the Marble Canyon Lodge.

Working on Upstream Boards

I am teaching one online course this winter break, but also took this opportunity to travel to southwest Colorado to help a friend continue developing his stand up paddleboard company.  Over the year, we have weekly phone conversations about design ideas.  But, being side by side in the studio allows the ideas to move along at a much faster pace.

Over the past three days, we've worked on designs for fins, paddles, and created a template for a new board.  I'll post more about those as we make the molds and shape the first blank for the new board.

Below are a couple of time lapse videos of fiber reinforced plastic being applied to current models.

More than marginal





Drawing at night while not looking at a subject.  These are not memory drawings, but impressions of things remembered allowed to turn into their own things.
