It all started with the melting snow and seeing the wonderful earth again, and the most fuzzy, pale caramel, velvet ribbon insisted on my attention.
Then feeling the sun once again reminded me of this huge painting I started and never completed during last year's studio move. So out from storage came the painting and the present. Yes, I kept the present for over a year, just couldn't give up on it.
Green started appearing and so did this bronze mouse from sculptor Steve Worthington. He has been recruiting painters to help him with a book project to raise money for animal shelters.
And the news of an opportunity to have a show with three of my friends - in the gallery district this month (which is the big Art Chicago month) has my heart about to burst from all the excitement! More on this installation piece, the painting projects, and my show soon! In the mean time, Happy Spring! And no, this is not an April Fool's joke :)
