New Era, New Studio

2013 art studio

Greetings, all. After an unexpected series of life events (emergency move, health issues, etc.) I have settled in a new spot and just finished restoring my art studio in the Portland Metro area. Still a bit rough around the edges, but it is all set to focus down on drawing, painting, mixed media and fiber arts/embellishment work. I’m excited to get started again.


Dreams show Oct. 3rd @ Launchpad Gallery

 

The above piece is not new, but it’s received a new context by my decision to enter it into the Dreams show, this coming month at Launchpad Gallery.

I felt it matched the show theme as the portrait depicts a young man I had originally dreamed about, but had not met, in a location I had never been to (England). Later that year, I did go to that place and I met him. The interaction that followed resulted in this piece. (And yes, he really did have that amazing hair!)

If you get a chance to come out to the opening, please do as the piece is in a spiffy new frame and looks awesome in person. The Web cannot do it justice.
