I announce the culminating event of my 50th Year as an Artist, my 10th Annual Autumn Open Studio on November 3, which will include an architectural feature as well as an array of new products, art and bead necklaces. (more…)

New Paper and Bead Artifacts

New Paper and Bead Artifacts

New Paper and Bead Artifacts

This week I finished some paper and bead artifacts that have been in process for a while. One reason I like opening my studio four times a year, is for the deadline effect. I love creating the work, the creative challenge, for myself because I know I’ll always be accountable to myself to finish what is started. (more…)

50th Year as an Artist, 2007-2008

2007 and 2008 were busy with national exhibits. The themes inspired new directions with media. For Exploring Multiple Dimensions at Albuquerque Museum of Art I created a series of collages, each art work comprised of two drawings with botanicals fused together with bees wax. We were keeping bees at the time and had a large supply. (more…)

Celebrating my 50th year as an artist brings me to this century. As we were building our home I painted my last oil painting of Cosmic Nest series.

The Grail featured in the painting is a wedding glass of my parent’s seated on a bardic table of remembrance that overlooks fireworks and galaxies. (more…)

50th Year as an Artist, 1998-1999

I’m celebrating my 50th year as an artist now looking at 1998-1999, a big turning point time. It was a time of experiencing the empty nest as my kids fledged and simultaneously engaging with a large body of oil paintings that Greg titled “Cosmic Nest.” This period culminated with designing our home, moving to Kentucky and building our new nest.

Sherry Hart Rocks

Sherry Hart Rocks

Sherry Hart is one of the most inspirational artists I have had the honor to know since the mid 1980s, through the Boulder Artist Gallery. Sherry Hart rocks! On a recent visit she shared her latest project 108 Prayers. It is a labor intensive project of not 108, but 1008 rocks painted with the labyrinth, by hand, no template! Anyone who has attempted to draw the labyrinth knows what a challenge it is. Sherry devotes painting as a meditaiton. A selection of 108 rocks was installed for an exhibit, Imaginary Maps, at McMane Gallery, First Congregation Church, 1129 Pine Street, Boulder, showing through September. (more…)
