"Tree Portraits"

Whenever things get a bit hectic around here I use my camera as way to slow down......I spent some time away from my busy studio/work/websites/teaching etc schedule to think about new plans, new paintings and new inspiration to keep me on track. These photos were taken various places on Oahu, Hawaii and are part of my ongoing photographic series titled "Tree Portraits".

I was invited to show work at the wonderful Northwest Encaustic Studio in West Seattle run by artist Shaun Doll. Please visit his new website to see all that they offer and visit here to view more images from my show this month. I have been working on this series for a long time and some of you may have seen my work in other exhibitions last year. The following images are my newest paintings and I am looking forward to seeing so many of you at the opening this Thursday! See you there!

Sketchbook Project Volume 4 Tour- Brooklyn Library Permanent Collection

I made another sketchbook this year for the upcoming Sketchbook Project Tour.....but this time I experimented with encaustic dipped pages and drawing on the wax surface. I have to say it didn't come easy but I am happy with the results and plan to do more. I love books as objects and I especially like keeping records of ideas for inspiration later.

This is the 4th Sketchbook Project and it will tour at least 5 cities in 2010 and will also become part of a permanent collection library. Books will be available complete with library cards for people to check out while in the gallery. See the Art House website or my schedule listed here to find out if it will be showing near you.
