A few photos of my preparation for a day trip to Michigan tomorrow to drop off work at Judith Racht Gallery. I have 10 framed pieces, and some unframed too.
And I may bring some or all of the panels I have been working on as studies. They can be arranged in all sort of varied configurations. I threw this together yesterday. I do not have any postcards in hand yet but hope to remedy that tomorrow.

If you are in Michigan weekend be sure and stop by for the opening reception and artists talk on Saturday.

Nice Mention In Midwest Living

There is a nice blurb in Midwest Living Magazine about my small watercolors. The August/September print edition mentions me and the gallery in an article about Lake Michigan and various ways to celebrate that amazing body of water. My watercolors were made as I observed from my condo balcony the various changes in color and light to the lake over time. I have about 20 of the these watercolors in the gallery this month, and I believe Stacia at 'Sojourn' in Sawyer Michigan has a few left also. They are sized at 18x6 inches and I hope to make a few more if warmer weather ever arrives.

Preparing For A Show In Michigan

I have been preparing for an upcoming show in Michigan that is scheduled to open on August 1 (more information soon). So there have been many digital images being sent back and forth. As long as I have them on hand I thought I'd post a few new grid-like drawings. To be a bit more precise these are drawings that always began from a grid, then would sometimes evolve toward something else in the making. These images are hurriedly shot, yardstick visible to give a sense of scale. They are all on Arches Watercolor paper that is size at 40x26 inches. I'm still making framing decisions, but the dead line is approaches quickly.

Title says it all. The opening reception will run from 7 until 10pm on June 12th. It is the first night of 'Midsommarfest', the neighborhood street fair, and I believe there will be an Abba tribute band playing down the street. Stop on by for a drink and a little Mama Mia.

Home Late, Thought I'd Blog

Just home from a Holiday weekend party, have a bit of a buzz on. Before turning in, I found a memory stick that contained photos of old work and images of ideas that I had not executed. I have not really looked at most of these things in years.

Thought I'd share them with you as I enjoyed them tonight, jumping from image to image, no real narrative or conceptual thread, except they were all concocted by the same person. And of course, Happy Memorial Day, thinking of all that serve and have served out country.
