Happy New Year- It’s February.

It’s been a busy start to the new year, and I’ve been unable to update as often as I like. But that just means I’ve been working hard, right?  I am really excited about 2o17 and the art opportunities it could bring.  I’ve been working hard in the studio, but I’ve also taken on aContinue reading “Happy New Year- It’s February.”

Empty Studio

New things must be coming in the studio, because it’s pretty empty right now.  I actually can’t stand the sight of it.  However, it just means that most of my current work is out in the real world getting looked at, and that is so gratifying.  I make all of these things in the comfortContinue reading “Empty Studio”

Happy NEW Year!

It’s been a while since I have updated the blog. I was busy working on the large painting  (11 feet by 6 feet), I put together work for a show that opens this week, and made time to visit family and friends over the winter break.   Well, it’s time to hit the ground running againContinue reading “Happy NEW Year!”

Studio time on a Saturday

It was kind of quiet at the Workhouse today.  While people were streaming in and out of our building I decided to do some much needed work on the big wall canvas I’ve been working on for the past few months. YES- I said “few months”.  I love this project and it’s been a lotContinue reading “Studio time on a Saturday”

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m going to take a little break from the studio this week.  I’m going off to spend some time eating some good homemade food and enjoying company with friends and family.  There is a lot have gratitude for this year, even though it’s been a roller coaster of a year.    I hope everyone out thereContinue reading “Happy Thanksgiving!”

New waves in the studio

As you know I’ve been working on a lot of new things this fall.  It all began with “the wall” but I also ended up experimenting with some new themes in my work.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a fan of maps.  But – I inherited about 40 years worth of magazines that haveContinue reading “New waves in the studio”

For your viewing pleasure: Artist at Work

I finally found my tripod.  So I decided to film a time-lapse video of me working in my studio.  I’m actually completely done with the collage portion of this GIGANTIC mixed media painting.  I can’t wait to work on the other parts of it. This video is about half hour of work collapsed into aboutContinue reading “For your viewing pleasure: Artist at Work”

An over due update

The wall has been going through some changes these last few weeks.  There’s been some problem solving, much needed breaks, and some breakthroughs.  I’m really having fun with this project and the idea has taken on a different kind of significance and study.  I feel like it’s moving forward. So with the much needed breaksContinue reading “An over due update”

Great News

So excited that my art made it into another water show.  This will be my second water – themed exhibit and I couldn’t be more happier.  We all have a connection to water and it’s important that galleries and curators choose themes such as this to highlight important issues.  People always come into my studioContinue reading “Great News”

The wall and chitta vritti

It’s been one of those weeks where I have been completely distracted in general.  I can’t seem to focus on one thing at a time.  I start doing something, and then my mind leads me elsewhere.  I guess that is one of the reasons I’ve been back at making script patterns again.  It’s like meditation. Continue reading “The wall and chitta vritti”
