Moving...again!

About 6 months ago, I moved from Portland, OR back to Chico, CA. Now I'm moving to Durham - the small town I lived in before moving to Portland. My life is cyclical at the moment; with the current of a whirlpool - the energy of a twister.
It will be a smaller place. I won't be able to have house shows with an open invitation, but I will be taking appointments to come by and see what I'm working on, with small groups. It's a new dimension, a new environment, and I'm real excited about it. I'm living on the grounds of Gale Vineyards. You heard me. A VINEYARD.
Yeah. I'm super stoked.
I'll keep you informed,and pictures to come within the next month.
Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

New Work~!!

Well, it's rainy, haily, chilly and wet outside.

My paint isn't drying very quickly in this weather, but there's been a flurry of activity during the dappled sunshine that appears every so often. I'm really excited about my new work.

My theme right now is one of "underlying statements", where words are painted, or drawn or squeezed through condiment containers into each piece - as reminders.
Encouraging expressions.
For me. For you.
To redirect our thoughts from the dark, wintery side to a lighter, more positive inclination.

Here is a taste:

Trees, The Lorax, My Childhood and Art.

I just saw the Lorax
My eyes are still wet.
It hit me as hard
As the first time, I'll bet.
Having it read to me,
tucked in my bed,
crying for the trees
and the birds and what led
to the annihilation of all that was pure
for profits, for fame,
for hedonistic allure.

I know that you here this a million times over,
but the book is better. Read it cover to cover.

My version of the truffula tree. The title of this one is "Unless." I sold it to new parents to put in their child's room. I hope that every kid can grow up with this story.
