I’ve been looking back to assess my work for this year and this is what I found! It’s not everything.  I have a good sized stack of UFOs I still need to have at it. I do believe I’ve accomplished the goals I set out to do last year: Build a body of work that has my voice instilled in it; submit to exhibits and yes, indeed,  I was accepted into one curated show and three juried shows!  The last goal is almost there.  My son Mark is working with me to start up a website – hooray!  This all adds up to a pretty happy artist ready to fully embrace 2015!

These are some of the pieces I worked on this year that have been finished and either mounted or bound. That makes 20 finishes for 2013, but I’ll show you a few more tomorrow.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
