I had a wonderful time at the group exhibition Put the Art in pARTy at Icehouse Gallery, curated and hosted by Joe Holdren. The setting is always a spacious and intriguing place to explore, as is the art.
I’m looking forward to yet another upcoming group exhibition at Icehouse on May 5: Figure So Surreal, curated by Travis Fields. I’ll be one on 36 other artists showing contemporary surrealistic work. More on that in the next post.
Here is a detail pic of something that sprang onto paper yesterday afternoon. We’ll see where it takes me. Perhaps this is where it stops.
Every day, I try to either run or hike in the Sonoran landscape. I make a practice to stop and smell the roses… and orange blossoms and creosote. There is so much visible beauty to not only enjoy, but to remind my spirit of how importantly interconnected we all truly are wherever we go, be it a quiet forest in the mountains or a sprawling metropolis. Here is a small dried barrel cactus fruit which must have been a nice meal for a bird or a javelina. It caught my eye, I passed it, then turned around to pick it up.
I am quite fond of listening to ambient music while I paint, or any time really. My favorites are bands like Pausal and The Dead Texan, who allow for a lot of open spaces between the changing chords and patiently allow the narrative to grow. Like clouds slowly overlapping, merging and dissipating. This musical piece is by an incredible group called A Winged Victory For The Sullen. It was put out on the Erased Tapes Records label, album titled, Requiem For The Static King Part Two.
I’ve just finished another small painting. I will be photographing it in the next day or so, and blog it soon.
Happy Easter. Happy newness.

I took the following pictures (the first one below is by Joe) when I dropped off my artwork last week. You can see that the crew at Icehouse is busy putting up new lighting in preparation for a fantastic time!
With my two work, Awake and Diviners.
I also have these four artworks, two drawings and two paintings, at The Artery, during Art Detour 29. These will be included in the group show with Ladies Who Paint. Also be sure to walk upstairs and view the studios of artists such as Ann Morriss Osgood and Laura Cohen-Hogan.

It’s been full speed ahead the past couple of weeks! I have completed the painting, Calamus, and started several more. Below are detail pictures of one I’m working on.
A departure, a change, a derivation, a rabbit hole… I like where this little work took me. I abraded the surface with so much moisture, it curled back. I scrubbed pastel into the cotton fibers till they frayed and my knuckles were raw. Here is little Calamus, 2017, watercolor, ink and pastel, 9 3/8 x 7″.
And details. Some of them from the side, so you can view the textures.
This work is available to view and purchase at my website’s shop.
