Who I'm Digging

No pun intended, but this guy's stuff is my eye candy du jour. He paints on plexi and often uses text in his work. What more could a girl ask for? Check him out -> Tony Savoie

Here's another plexi painter whose work I really admire -> Monica Reede

Acceptance: New Narratives (Nov 10 - Dec 10, 2009)

10/10/09

Just got word that Into the Woods was accepted for this show! Unfortunately I'll be out of town the during the day when the juror gives a talk. The reception is that same evening, so I'm going to try to make it there for that.

I'm really excited to be included in this show since storytelling is a central theme to most of my work.

Louisville

10/4/09

Just got back from attending a conference for work there. I love this town.

I walked around to see some of the places I'd photographed in spring 2008, and most looked the same. I had hoped that some of the renovations for the interiors of the old buildings would be done and filled with thriving shops. I guess when 1 of 10 people are unemployed in a city, these kinds of projects fall to the wayside.

I dug up my old photos since I forgot my camera this time around. Such lovely surfaces...
