A few weeks ago I submitted suns to CBS Sunday Morning (click here to see post). The sun above was selected and aired on the March 31, 2019 broadcast of the show.
The person at CBS who curates the selection of suns that air on the program wrote me the following about airing my sun:


“I’m writing to let you know that one of your GORGEOUS suns will be on our Sunday Morning broadcast tomorrow. Steve Hartman is doing a really moving piece on a former convict/talented artist, and your sun is absolutely perfect at the end.”

Jessica Frank

The piece she is referring to is a moving story about wrongfully convicted artist Richard Phillips who created art in prison for decades. It was his way of surviving it knowing that he was innocent. This offered freedom that could not be taken away. Humbled that my sun was chosen to follow this story.

Printed in reverse on clear acrylic on a UV printer where the inks are hardened and cured by UV light as it’s being printed. A PVC film and composite aluminum panel covers and protects the printed surface. After its’s all put together, the work is cut to the shape of the piece on a CNC Router.

Suns Submitted to CBS Sunday Morning

Since it’s debut in 1979, CBS Sunday Morning has featured artistic suns. I was watching the show on it’s January 27, 2019 broadcast and one of the stories was about Jessica Frank. She is the person at CBS Sunday Morning that handpicks the suns that are submitted by the public. At CBS she is known as the Sun Queen. Seeing the story, I decided to submit my work. I created two suns and submitted them for consideration. One of the suns has two backgrounds; one on black and the other on white.

A couple of weeks after I emailed her the suns, I received this wonderful email from her:

My e-mailbox is jammed full of suns, and it’s been taking me a while to get to them all.  With that being said, I have to tell you that your suns really stand out as very special ones.  They’re absolutely great, and perfect for use on future Sunday Morning broadcasts. Thanks so much for your patience, and for sharing your beautiful artwork with us.  I promise to let you know when any of your suns are used.

Fifty Nine Rhombuses

A Rhombus is a parallelogram with opposite equal acute angles, opposite equal obtuse angles, and four equal sides. A baseball diamond is a rhombus.

In this work, there are a total of 59 rhombuses. Each rhombus is defined by 6 triangles broken into 2 equilateral triangles plus 4 Isosceles triangles.

The following is from the Artist Archives Of The Western Reserve website and click here to read more about the exhibition on the AAWR website:

The Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) is proud to present NewNow 2018, Northeast Ohio’s premier biannual competitive art exhibition.  This years multi-media show was juried by Steven Matijcio, the curator of the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, one of the oldest contemporary art institutions in the United States.  The exhibition will be held in Tri-C’s beautiful 3,000 sq. ft. Gallery East, 4250 Richmond Road, Highland Hills, OH 44122 beginning with an opening reception on Thursday, September 13th, 6-8:30pm.

 2018 marks the third incarnation for the NewNow, and this year’s exhibition was the most competitive to date, with a total of 55 works selected from nearly 550 entries made by 172 individual artists.

 The NewNow is set apart from the throng of other regional juried art exhibitions, through its consistent use of a highly qualified, non-regional juror.  “The NewNow offers local artists a unique opportunity to get their work in front of fresh eyes and seeks to rise above the local art politics which can often lead to the same artists being selected for shows repeatedly.” explains AAWR Executive Director Mindy Tousley.
