Last Friday Art Walk

It is time again for the art walk. I don't have too many posts between art walks since Henry was born. Hmmm. Below, I put in the link to the video that I made for those of you who have never been to the studio. It can be tricky to find. I think it will help you find me.

Next week I will have a new studio mate moving in, Teague Cohen. I will give a little intro about her next week. She makes glass beads.

As I was rearranging for Teague to move in I found a variety of older work of mine. Many people are surprised to see work when I stray from the still life paintings that I have been doing for the last few years. I have explored many many styles and ideas since I have been making art for a long time now. Gallerists like to show an artist's cohesive body of work but I think most artists like to explore and try different things. It is hard to develop a completely new body of work that is ready for a gallery. It feels like going backward a little to think about doing it. When you visit my studio you see more than the commercial package. You see my widely straying mind and all the experimentation that may never make it to the gallery.
