it has been a slow winter with the onslaught of snow and the general need of some me time. That and the house needed some work and the studio had to be dug out from all the projects that were being worked on over the year. January is the month of renewal and rest, where introspection occurs. its vital to the longevity of the creative spirit. But I have not been completely slack in creating new work. I have branched out to include some quilting into my arsenal. lap quilts.

I have the opportunity to participate in a mini version of artprize, known as Grand Haven ArtWalk. This particular piece is hanging at a wonderful gallery of hand crafted jewelry by my friend, Julie Sanford. The frame was constructed from poplar using cabinet making skills and between my dad and I we decided to leave it natural, creating that sense one is looking out a window. This is lake michigan from Duck Lake park

So i have the opportunity to do something new. A mural. For a brewery in standale, mi. It is a learning curve, but this is good thing for an artist to always experience. To become complaiscent is to become weak and stunted in ones growth. I will say since dedicating myself to 2d art, the world seems to be opening up a bit more for opportunities. Met some lovely locals too. And the local meijers. Wowza.

so, i have been carving into linos for the past two weeks in addition to teaching at an art camp. it was clear to me when i finished the second, this needed to be displayed as a trio. so, what should i do? a sunflower! viola! this is just a preliminary print to see how the carving went before i would do the final printing and maybe add some faint color.

I also finished this landscape painting of a field where the hay had been recently cut against a brooding sky of clouds. it was a frustrating piece because with pastels, you cannot mix your colours like paint, but overlap them in a way to create the illusion of the colours you want. i really love the trees though.
