Here I am finally back. I am aghast when I look at the date of the last posting. As I looked at the calendar yesterday I realized it has now been 3 months that I have been running back and forth to Portland helping with the family health issues. It seems it has made me pull inward.
In between all that, I have actually done lots of art. It has been my salvation when I come home after being gone for several days.
So, honestly I'll try to post new work in the upcoming days as we get it photographed. Above is one new piece, done in an old sewing machine drawer. The fellow is a plastic anatomical man which I "rusted".
Sun is finally forecast for the weekend, and I know that will improve my mood. The month of May was one of the wettest and coldest on record, and we surpassed our usual June rainfall in the first 3 1/2 days of the month! I'm sure you get the picture! My garden, other than lettuce and peas and cabbage, has been standing still during the cold nights and rainy, dreary days. This weekend should set some growth in motion, and will hopefully make for an elevated frame of mind.
My art is now in Current Gallery in McMinnville OR and in River Gallery in Independence. Thanks to those galleries for representing my work.
