More Seedpod work

The end of January is quickly approaching and more progress is happening on Anna’s page. I hadn’t actually read through the introduction page since opening the package…..and WOW, I’m so horribly off topic from what it was supposed to be. Edible Plants! Eat Me is the title! What happened in my brain??! These are seriouslyContinue reading “More Seedpod work”

Feeling chuffed

It’s official! I have art on permanent public display in the council chambers of Halsey Oregon. Wow, I just can’t believe it’s really there and installed, plus giving the space a more dramatic sense. The photos are from Hilary Norton, City of Halsey administrator/recorder. The work was installed yesterday. I’ll hopefully head down next weekContinue reading “Feeling chuffed”

Backyard Wildlife Book

Today, the start of my book titled “Backyard Wildlife” was packed up and sent to Minnesota for the next addition of artwork! Horray!!!! Concertina Book Collaboration 2018! Background: The group was formed through blogging. (Yes, there really can be some cool connections made through blogs!) The first book collaboration started in 2015. It included 4Continue reading “Backyard Wildlife Book”

Finishing off the Lamp

House E is finished, delivered to the gallery, and on display with all the other amazing box creations. A lovely article was written up by the local paper and they actually posted an image of my work in an online slideshow.  Click on the blue link below the photo. Gazette Times Next project: Unknown, butContinue reading “Finishing off the Lamp”

Starting Inside/Outside the Box

I think I’m glad to have signed up for the upcoming show Inside/Outside the Box at The Arts Center in Corvallis. Part of me has really struggled with sitting down to produce something, anything. My brain has been so immersed in house projects that I haven’t been creating artwork since spring. So, it seems fittingContinue reading “Starting Inside/Outside the Box”

Cradle Adjustments

Making adjustments wasn’t quite part of my grand scheme of mounting prints. But when your prints aren’t exactly 6″x 6″, one has to do a little fudging. Last week I put in an order for more unfinished cradles to mount prints. The edges get painted black and everything receives a protective UV coating. I’ve pulledContinue reading “Cradle Adjustments”

A New Year 

After an almost 2+ month break, I’ve decided that it’s a good time to get back into a blogging routine. The holidays are over. Winter is very much here. The studio is aching  for attention from me! 2016 certainly held several projects with art and life: Art in Rural Communities is still up and goingContinue reading “A New Year “

The Install of “From the Land”

It’s been several days since the actual installation and I’m finally feeling rested enough to show some photos! It was a beautiful warm fall day and a 20 ft long blank canvas! Walter B and Hester Coucke (The Arts Center Curator) were hard at work hanging the informational signage. Starting off seemed pretty simple. LayContinue reading “The Install of “From the Land””

Early Rain

It came early. The rain that is. It’s been a bit of a guessing game as to when it would start. Would it be Saturday or Sunday? Will it start around noon on Saturday or around 9am? It chose the 9:30am Saturday time slot. This early rain puts a damper on the final painting push.Continue reading “Early Rain”

Getting Closer

I’m working like crazy to get the project completed by this Friday. Why Friday? Because I want the weekend to myself! I’m so tired of the whole thing. Yet, I have to keep plugging along and try to forget those negative thoughts as they arise. Today I started bracing parts together. What does that mean?Continue reading “Getting Closer”
