blue skies (for a minute)

Painting update...

As most of you know, it has been raining and raining. I went out to yard to document my "Pacific Northwest" yard. We have spider lilies and I wish I had many many more.... Check out the mushrooms.

Ole Misses'

I got the coolest thing last week. I am scheduled for a solo exhibit at the University Museum. At first, it was on the books for this fall, but we pushed it back until January. While I was there meeting with the director and installer, they mentioned that they had a scale model of the exhibition space. "Did I want to borrow it?" I grabbed that model and started setting up my show. The model is 1" to 1' scale. I printed out my paintings to scale. For example, a 5 foot by 7 foot painting is printed out at 5 inch by 7 inch. I love this! I may come up with pseudo exhibits as well.

What do you think about the title of the show, "Ole Misses'"? Any better suggestions?

Here is a detail of my scarf. The negative space relationships with lace are so fascinating!

Painting update soon.....

Busy Busy

On Thursday, HB and I headed to the Ole Miss Motel for the One Night Stand show. I love the concept! Each artist gets a room for one night only. I might even apply for this show next year. Here are some of my favorite rooms.
