A Fresh Start!

Sculpture New Hope 6

New shows!  New Work!  New Website!  I’ve been Spring cleaning and giving myself a fresh start after months of preparing new work for back-to-back shows in the past six months. Meanwhile, out with old notes, and files, and stuff and in with who knows what?  We’ll see what emerges!

Quick Recap: April brought the opening of SCULPTURE New Hope 2013 (there’s an Opening Night photo). I’m thankful that my bamboo labyrinth “Journey” and bamboo mosaic “Possessions” were selected for this popular show, giving me the chance to exhibit with so many interesting artists! This is a new venue for my natural mosaics, as they are sculptural wall-mounted works. There’s still plenty of time to see it at the New Hope Arts Center before May 18th. You’ll love it!  Kids will love it too!

In March I had a 2-person show at the Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ called “Breathing the Same Air” where I introduced my latest landscape paintings to this gallery. Most of the landscapes were from NJ-PA locations: Washington Crossing, Stockton, Peace Valley Park, and my own back yard in Solebury, PA… They were accompanied by silverpoint drawings of intertwined vines, flowers, animal skulls, beach stones, seashells…an assortment of natural elements. The previous show that I spent many months preparing for was about another natural element – bamboo. This show was called “Expressions in Wood, Glass, and Bamboo” and that was also held at the Artists’ Gallery, back in September 2012.

Right now I’m enjoying the ease of working with my new website, thanks to Caryn at Lantern Glow Design.  It’s a great relief to have this in her capable hands.  She’s always ready to help when I need it.  That’s good because the training wheels are still on…

It’s a new day!  I’m gathering steam for lots of new ideas, and will let you in on them soon. As always, your comments and questions are welcome~
