Photo of the Week: December 16, 2012

As a child, one of my favorite things to do was to go to Baltimore Orioles games at Memorial Stadium.  Sometimes I would go with my father, and other times I would go on trips organized by my church.  In October 2002, I went to a Braves playoff game against the San Francisco Giants.  As I waited for my friends in our designated meeting spot, I was fortunate enough to experience this incredibly painted sky.  The Braves lost that deciding game and, thus, the series to the Giants.  But I felt like a winner for getting this lasting image.

Work of the Week: December 9, 2012

Most of the time when we draw we start with a white sheet of paper and draw images on the paper using a pen or pencil.  Now imagine doing just the opposite.  Imagine starting with a black sheet of paper (or board or clay) and creating the image by scraping through the layer of black ink to reveal the white underlying layer.  That medium is known as Scratchboard.  This is one of my favorite Scratchboard images from high school.  Oh, by the way, I got an "A" on this one.
