abby's bird

speaking of peers.... i was lucky enough to meet abby glassenberg and her husband charlie at my show at artstream studios . and she agreed to trade with me.

i heart my tall bird.
you can see her website here and you can get one for yourself here

3 cups

this is what i sent her.... i was making a series of small cup/doily works to warm up in the studio again. and i wanted to incorporate "real" doilies too. i'm trying out different colorways to see how the imagery changes.

and speaking of peers.... i'll be posting on ship of fools on friday. part 1 on our new book the elegance of the hedgehog

happy mid week

quite jealous of your trade ;).

Catching up with you tonight! You are in great company in the PEER coloring book - what a fun idea. I love, love your doily piece, very beautiful, and your figure drawing is also so sensitive and skilled.
Big congrats on your many, many art shows! Happy belated birthday and anniversary - and I'm sorry to read about your grandmother. Mine is turning 90 this year, and unfortunately I don't see her often anymore since we live abroad.
Thanks for sharing your news and good luck with your studio. Sounds exciting. Lots going on :)
