Rainbow Buds


Nearly April.

On Tuesday, I pack up my Honda and drop the work off at the Newport Art Museum to be hung.  Exposed.   My colorful pies, all framed up and ready to show!

The opening reception is Friday April 9 from 5-7 pm. I’ll be there.

A related project that took shape in this process. Yes, I did make a book – but it was not at all like I thought.  It turned out to be a catalog of the AirBorn series. I did the whole thing on-line. It was very odd using my own work as design elements in a publication.  It was great fun and I hope you like the result.

Originally, I did think of doing a more…handmade object.  But really, these are Ovid’s stories.  It’s a collaboration with a willing shade (I hope – so far, no ectoplasm).

The books are available at blurb.com.  I will also have a few copies at the opening.

Just click on the “bookstore” tab and type in my name and you can check it out.  I have to say – the hardcover is pretty tasty.

In addition, I’ll be teaching a 4 week workshop at the Museum. Friday’s  April 16 – May 7.    9:30 am-12:30 pm  “Your Dreamscapes: Express your Inner Mind”.  for more info go to http://www.newportartmusum.org.

AND –  with curator Nancy Whipple Grinnell on Gallery Night – May 13 6:00pm. “Mythology and Art at the Museum”. I’ll blab about how the whole project evolved.

There you have it.

I did finish one painting in January before other activities took priority.
