Thank you all, so much!

My most humble thanks to everyone who warmed my house with their presence this Open Studio Season. It was a total success - with time to talk to almost everyone, great weather, some happy tears, and a lot of wonderful "adoptions" that took place. You have all given me license to keep doing what I am doing, and the means to do so.
My walls are bare but my heart is full. The best part...one of the best parts is that I get to meet everyone that takes a painting home. It's an incredible opportunity that I hope I get to do for the rest of my life.

So - I wanted to touch base and let you all know where I will be hanging my new work, and when. I'm fixin' to have a few new pieces up at the Black Crow by mid-week to replace those that have been sold - so, there's that. I'm expecting 3 or 4 new ones.

I'll be working on a New Line of artwork for Savannah James in downtown Chico (A real treat! You really must go and treat yourself to something special and quite possibley hand-made or sprinkled with story or just really old and beautiful). The address is 236 Broadway, Suite A - and the owner is Sarah. She's wonderful. ANYWAY - I anticipate on having new artwork at her shop near the second week of November. They should be different than my usual stuff - lots of text, found objects, humor...well, similar in concept to my regular work - but there will be a definite diversion, as these will only be sold in her shop.

Stay tuned...I'm thinking about having another studio show in Mid-December. I'll keep you posted.

Open Studio ART Tours!!

Once again, we are quickly approaching that magical time where local artists start picking up after themselves and buy wine and cheese for others besides themselves...yes. It's Artober, and for the first and second weekends of October, the studios of more than 100 Chico Artists are open to the public. It's festive, it's intimate, it's exciting and everyone leaves with a greater understanding of artwork, of particular artmakers, or of the mediums we use to make what we do....OR they leave with paintings!

The Art Reception is at the Chico Art Center from 6-9pm on October 6th. For information on that, go to www.chicoartcenter.com.

Look forward to seeing you here! Email me for more information, or just because!
