Artwork of the Season

I was an "art major" in high school and seriously considered going on to Tyler School of Art for college. But I also loved literature, philosophy, and theology and ended up going to Penn instead to double-major in English and philosophy.

Still, I have kept doing some art on the side over the years, especially the ten years I taught art during the summers at a juvenile correctional facility. Media I enjoy include: pencil, ink, scratchboard, print-making, acrylic, guache, and egg tempera.

I thought I might begin occasionally posting photos of pieces I've done, beginning with this seasonal appropriate depiction of the Virgin and Christ Child, portrayed as Latin Americans of Mayan descent:
