throwback thursday

Today's throwback is a pulp painting from last fall's residency. It's at the Towle Theater as part of Landscape's Language. Opening Tomorrow Night! 

begin again, pulp painting, ~9" x 9"

And since the reception just misses Autism Awareness Month, I'm extending the donation pledge through tomorrow. 25% of sales opening night will be going to the National Autism Association in Northwest Indiana.

in the studio

In the studio this week: two small works in progress. Heading in a more minimalist direction - at least trying to. I'm fighting against myself a bit on it. I keep seeing what I want, and it's more subtle than what I've created in long time. The upper piece needs a bit more work at the transition and the lower one is pretty close to done. I need to look at it for a bit.

Out of the studio, I went to Nido Bianco on Saturday for Art Attack and saw some friends. Andrea Peterson was there giving demos of paste papers and suminagashi papers. This was great because I had no interest in the sumi and now I want to do it!
I also delivered a bunch of large scale works which will be at Tapistry Brewing for the next two months. And I confirmed a heartland series solo show for Dyer Arts Visionaries at the end of May.

Up next: Friday night is the opening at the Towle for Landscape's Language (finally!) I'm so excited for this opening! Twenty-one pulp paintings created during last fall's residency at Hook Pottery Paper. The reception is before The Next Thing You Know opening night. After the play, I'll be at Merge for their LOOK15 opening, where I have 4 heartland paintings. Friday is May 1st and Autism Awareness Month will be over, but I'm continuing my donation pledge through these openings - and I've upped the donation to 25% of sales for these locations. Also next week, I'm serving as a grant panelist for the IAC, which is a very interesting experience - to be on the other side of the grant process.

Throwback Thursday

The magnolia trees are blooming here. They always bloom near Easter. My grandmother had one in her front yard and it always bloomed around her birthday. And my older son shares her birthday, which was earlier this week. So in recognition of those two special people, today's throwback is magnolia petals, scattered, 2013, acrylic 5" x 7"
