Back to Work!



School started about two weeks ago, for my daughter, and just as I was getting back to business as usual we caught our first colds of the school year.  Having recovered, mostly, I am ready to get back to more hours in the studio and even catching back up on things like this blog (hello blog).  Last week, I went up north to have some paintings scanned for prints.  This, I hope, will be the start of more prints of future paintings and I can't wait to share those with you hopefully within the next couple of weeks.

In addition to painting, I am exploring mixed media pieces (above).  I'm using photocopies of my many vintage photographs and combining them with various collaged papers and some painting.  Very fun to exploring new media while still tying into my other work.  More to come!

End of Summer and Open Studios



Tomorrow is the first day back to school for my daughter and I should be getting back to more regular posts here.  Many things coming up to share.  While I didn't make much time to blog this summer, I have been busy creating.  Will share more over the coming weeks.

This Thursday evening, September 10, from 5 to 7 p.m., we will be having Open Studios at the group of studios of which I am a part (1313 Mill St Salem, Oregon).  There will be new gallery shows, demos, and more.  I should have some of my summer work on display (detail of one painting above and below).  More soon...
