This Weekend

I have six painted  12x12 inch panels in gray with a diagonal line running through them. I was continually rearranging them until I decided to do a few explorations in Photoshop. A faster way to generate configurations before I make additional panels. I cannot decide which arrangement makes sense.

And I have donated my "Pink Egg Carton Tower" to Ferrer Foundation. There was an event on Thursday at Norcross and Scott, and the tower is in the store for sale. All proceeds from this piece will go to the Ferrer Foundation which serves young persons in the Chicago area. Check out their website at Or learn more Norcross and Scott at
 And finally, I'm working on a large commission this weekend. Four Drawings from my "City" series. Three days in I'm somewhere near the half way point, still fine tuning the overall scope. I kept count today and I drew 61'buildings'. Those are new Michelle Peterson Albandoz pieces above my drawings.
