Golden Fields

Finished drawing a pattern for another large single-edition piece of a deer (black-tailed?) in a meadow with flowers, golden grass, and an old weathered fence. I took the inspiration photo for this one the last time I was in California visiting family. This one was also from the Point Reyes area. Some beautiful scenery up there!

Now I have a bunch of larger pieces in the works- need to settle down and actually finish cutting some of them instead of drawing up more! I keep telling myself I have till June (first show of the year), but I know how time tends to run away from me so I need to get moving on it. And I still am not finished cutting my tiger "Bathing Beauty" piece yet! AND I am trying to freshen up my old inventory by adding detail and rebacking/rematting some of my older, less detailed pieces. Whew! Wish this was my full-time job just so I would have more hours in the day to get everything done! :)

New project- Point Reyes

I just started working on a new project- something a little different. I am doing a silhouette-style cutting out of black paper inspired by this fantastic cluster of trees that I photographed just off the ocean at Point Reyes in CA.. I was out there last spring to visit my sister, and I got a shot of the trees as the fog was rolling in, whiting out the background behind them. By the time we came back past them, you could barely see them at all because it was so foggy, so I snapped the pictures just in time!

New fall show app

I got info and applied for another show online. This one is the Crocker Park fall show I have done two years running, but this year they moved it up to mid-September instead of mid-October. Last year's weather was 40's and pretty miserable, so I am happy for the change.. :)

Show acceptances

I got acceptance notifications from the June art show at Crocker Park and the August show at Levis Commons near Toledo! Now I need to figure out hotel stuff for Toledo- my furthest-afield show so far and a little bit scary... :)
