The garden is in full bloom and delights me with variety and color. The garden is my outdoor canvas.  I spend a bit less time in the studio, but that does not stop the creative juices from flowing when in there.

I am grateful that my collaged metal rooster raised 525.00 for the Hurley Heritage Society at June's auction. It was the first project I have done like this. It was collaged with gelli plate prints that I made and is 2-sided.

July 20/21 Sat/Sun from 10-4 is Upstate Art Weekend. I am in Studio 2 at the Woodstock School of Art. I will have recent work as well as a lovely selection of cards. It is my first public show in 4 years, and I am so excited to share what I have been up to, a treatise on fairy tales, memory, and magic. 

We are part of Art Walk in Kingston NY, on SaturdaySeptember 21/22 from 12-5 I will be showing art/cards under the tent (weather permitting) and Larry will give a garden tour to any who are interested. I bake and there are always refreshments served!!! (more info/maps/links etc as we get closer to the date)

For the past 6 months I have been working on a body of mixed media abstract art inspired by the childhood fairy tales of Andrew Lang, The Brothers Grimm, and tales from around the globe. As a child they wrapped me in a blanket of adventure, magic, and wonder.  Drawn to them in later adulthood, I am rediscovering these morality tales in explosions of color, shimmer, and movement.
