New Shows!

I have my very first gallery show at:
Butte College
from 4:30 - 6:30,
and I'm still finishing up(!!)

There is indeed, a flurry of activity happening in my studio right now. I am painting on hollow doors, trying to paint loose, but somehow still using my ruler for horizon lines, attempting to draw with my left hand some; to have my concentration be on lines instead of the big picture. I'm using new "toys" (materials) that are adding a new look and feel, which is thrilling, and the new additions are National Geographic pictures that have been treated to look splotchy and painterly and mesmerizing. It's fun to have something to mix up my style.
The paintings are big, and my studio seems dwarfed by their stature.
I can't wait to see them when they are all done. ...And get them on the gallery walls so that I can walk freely through my studio again.

I am, however, trying to enact The Pomodoro Technique and commit to 25-minute intervals of energy put into the very important details that are not painting. So, Hello!

Right after I finish this show at Butte, called The Portal Series: Opportunity Knocks, I'll be back in the studio working on smaller works for:

Chikoko's Winter Bizarre Bazaar
December 14th - 15th
10 - 5
@ The Chico Women's Club
592 E 3rd Street

I've also got new work slated to hit Monk's sometime in December...AND, I might be working on a local mural come the new year; but that is still in talks.

It's all very exciting!

I'm an incredibly busy girl and happy to be so.

Cheers! My 25 minutes is up!
