This coming Friday my solo exhibit of 20+ new dye paintings opens at Miele Gallery here on the island. I am excited to see the work hanging together, out of my studio. Always seems to look a little different in a formal setting.
Now that these two shows are done deals, I am continuing to paint toward my December exhibit with Pia Reilly in Juneau. There are new acrylic-on-paper collages taking shape on my work table.

I am having a wonderful time immersed in paint again, appreciating the directness of the process. Can't wait to get back to the studio tomorrow. Happy Labor Day those of you in the United States. and happy September to ALL.
