Completed taxidermy crow. Many, many, many aspects that need improving on...looking forward to smaller birds after this feat.

The above and following are works I have finished during my first quarter at CSUSB. The first is Dove, rendered on canvas with acrylic paint.
Rabbits: painted in acrylic on the lining of a rabbit fur stole. It was difficult getting used to the texture, but for me, it paid off. I'll be submitting this to the student show - wish me luck!
Swarm: I don't know the exact measurements of the canvas used here, but the horse head is right about life-sized. The gestural lines were made with Black India Ink. This was also (and I should mention) a performance piece. I played Flight of the Bumblebee while wearing bug-vision goggles to start this off...the horse head and the little flies came later.
