Or, Summer, as non New Englanders say it. What are you up to? Where are you planning on being or wishing you were...

My current location? Kansas City studio, mostly. And while here, I'm painting a little, but not too much. I pushed myself hard to be ready for my June Exhibition, “Not Everything Will Be Replaced” at the Bunker Center for the Arts. The results were better than I imagined, all around, including the installation, visitors, feedback and my new lack of nervousness at public speaking events. I hope you were able to come by - if not, I'll include some photos here.

You are also welcome to book a studio visit. It includes the interior view and lots of new and recent works on the walls and in the rack.

In the meantime, in the shallow mid-summer, I am reading Ninth Street Women by fellow MICA alumna Mary Gabriel. It's about one thousand pages so, 50 at a time, maybe I'll have a book report by September.

Take care,


P.S. I almost forgot! Through July 27th, Artful Home is offering 20-50% off original fine art and craft, including select pieces of mine. Check it out from your deck chair, beach blanket or pool chaise.
