2018 is on fire! Or was...

I started the new year with a burst of energy. Turns out I don't "spring clean", I "put Christmas away and New Year clean like a boss!" And with my studio/office clean and re-organized, I was able to get back to making art. I was on fire until Erin decided to share her cold with me. She's a giver. But before that, I had pulled out the encaustic materials and made half a dozen pieces! And for me, who has a love/HATE relationship with melted wax, that is a win! It helped that I was doing photo encaustic pieces and transfers. I even pulled the silk screen printing I was doing into the mix! 

And low and behold, one of those pieces made it into the Sierra Wax Artist's annual juried Member Show - Cross Pollination! This year's show is so strong!  I am so proud to be a part of this amazing, talented, and fun group of artists. Be sure to check it out at Arthouse on R.

And because encaustics are hot right now (sorry), 2 other galleries in the building are also featuring encaustic pieces! So swing by Studio 10 and Sparrow Gallery while you are there, you won't be disappointed.

Additional July shows

Turns out I have work in two more shows this July. 4 pieces in 4 different galleries -  not too shabby! 

I have a new painting in the annual FRIDA SHOW at Studio 10 in Arthouse on R. This show will run through August 11th. 

And I also have a small collage  - and I mean small! 1.5 inch square small - in the MicroArtCollection - Part III at DaDas Art Gallery Boutique in East Sacramento. This part of the MicroArtCollection will be up through Aug 5th. 

So, you've got 4 weeks or so to check out 4 awesome Sacramento galleries. Ready... go! 


oh right, this also happened - I had a poem (I'm not a writer!!) published in Dime Show Review. I'm not sure how I feel about this.
