Settling back into the studio again after a bit of a break. Spent time sanding and gessoing bigger panels and visiting other artists’ exhibits in Stowe, VT, Dartmouth, NH and Brattleboro, VT. Truly enjoyed Intimacy & Materiality at the Helen Day Art Center …Especially Sarah Amos’ work (I’m a longstanding fan). I’ll post more about recent exhibits if I can find time. Currently I am diving headlong back into it; crazy in love with creating larger work. Feels good to be back here in the studio.

Where the Wind Took Them

Chance. Fate. Destiny. Is it all random or is there some kind of order? Perhaps it’s a combination of things. Seed scattered on the wind becomes a stand of trees. Those seeking shelter will sometimes settle in. The restless and hungry always seem to move along.
