New Show in May




Hello all-
The past 2 months have been mostly about taking care of my family as the colds and flu of the season pass through. I'm hoping my son's ear infection and terrible cough is the end of it and we can get back to the drafty studio again with a clear conscience. The show I was in at Ryerson Woods: Aviary, was a wonderful experience. The opening was well attended and even had appearances by live birds of prey. I sold a painting to another one of the artists in the show- it is a 4'x5' oil painting. It's the last oil painting I made before Phin was born and it was always his favorite to look at. I'll miss it, but I'm happy it's going to a good home. Thanks Don!




Happily, this sale will help me fund a solo show this May at Matrix Gallery in the Zhou B space in Chicago. I'm really excited for the opportunity to see all my birds together and will be harassing all of my friends, family, students, and strangers to come to the opening on May 21st.

And now for some images.

First, some unfortunate bears whom I chanced upon in a dream:




Now, some of the newer paintings/ newer versions of paintings:

18"x18" acrylic on canvas


12"x12" acrylic on canvas


2'x3' acrylic on canvas

And, of course, the cutest thing going on in my studio. Thanks for making this fantastic movie, Jane!





Happy beginning of Spring, all and hope to see you all in May!

Thanks Cathi! Phin is a good studio mate and task master. When I sit down he tells me "mommy, work on painting!"
