Spring, 2013

I had a wonderful spring break in Sedona. I sat in the hills and drew the amazing red rocks of the high desert. This was the first time in years I worked with oil pastels. GREAT FUN!

Winter

The new year is starting out with a lot of energy. I will be exhibiting brand new works and some older pieces that relate thematically at The Princeton Public Library from mid-January until May. A slide presentation and talk are scheduled for Monday, February 27, 7 pm.

I will also be teaching a workshop at The Arts Council of Princeton on the art of Pochoir, or stencil making, the predecessor of silkscreen printing.

Autumn

Where did the time go?  I entered this photo in the exhibition Re-Member in September at The Arts Council of Princeton and received very positive feedback. Beginning September 2010 – August 31, 2011 I took at least one photo per day, then selected one photo to represent each day in that year. It forced me to look at my surroundings and really become engaged in my visual world daily.  I was very proud of the accomplishment. It is a visual diary of an entire year.

I prefer to call this “Shaman’s Wall”.

Summer Update

It is hard to describe the magnificance of these ancient writings or the experience of being so close to the earliest art discovered in the US.  I return to Arizona to feel the earth beneath my feet, view vistas of sky, mountains, desert and lakes, and taste the best Mexican food you can get anywhere.
