2010

It was cold. It started snowing. People came anyway!

Thanks to everyone that stopped by for the “Dog ‘n’ Pony.” Thanks to Sheila for hosting.

Thanks to 4Culture for helping make this possible.

I’m hoping to host something at my studio for those that couldn’t make it.

Here are a few pics from the event (thanks Rebecca):

We are hiding our nervousness through laughter.
Umm, what do we do now? Who are all these people?
This had better work! Sheila at the press...
Whew. It worked! Sheila once again pulls a good print.

Try Harder Tomorrow

It’s done. The suite is complete. It is called Try Harder and is comprised of 6 prints in an edition of 6 with 6 artist’s proofs. Just kidding, that would be evil. There are just two artist’s proofs.

We unveil it tomorrow at Sidereal Fine Art Press in Tukwila.

Number last.

Print release party from 2-5, tomorrow РSunday Nov. 21.

(I picked up several growlers of Manny’s from Georgetown Brewery if that’s any incentive.)

Save The Date! Sunday, November 21st, 2010!

My “Print Project” is done! Well – it will be by November 21st. Gotta be.

Almost there!

Thanks to a 4Culture grant:

I was able to work with Sheila Coppola at Sidereal Press:

Come see Sheila and I pull a print, have a tasty beverage and a light snack, and tour the fabulous Sidereal Fine Art Press.

Meanwhile back at the Farmhouse

Finally a post, eh? Summer is over. Time to update.

Been busy with a new house, new studio – new pathways in the brain. Finally feeling settled.

The new digs - definitely not downtown Seattle anymore.

South Seattle – Rainier Beach to be exact. No more ten minute walks to work. The two car garage is the new studio.

Where will it all go?

And upstairs from the studio – a bonus room:

The clubhouse.

Rebecca and I really love it here.

And, finally some new work!

Might Be Time To Reconsider, 44" x 30", gouache and graphite on paper, 2010

I’m Having A Gimlet!

My apologies for not posting. Busy moving to a new house and studio. Trying to update my blog software and losing all of my images. Hence the Gimlet(s). This maybe the only image for a bit while I sort out the damage. Arrgh.

Attention Artists! ID studio available.

It has been a bit since I posted. Been in the crazy world of buying and selling real estate in this strange economic climate. Hard to focus on anything else. But we are heading into the final stages – I hope. Fingers crossed, but the condo has sold which was the hardest part.

Rebecca and I are moving from condo to house mid-month which means giving up my ID studio of 5 years. Which means some lucky person can have this great space.

And of course I have stuff, I mean amazing “things” to get rid of to gift to other artists, like these crates of varying sizes:

And other odds and ends.

If you are interested in the space or the crates or the odds and ends please let me know.

I’m out at the end of June.

Press For Sale!

Sold!

Yep, that’s right. I’m putting my beloved (11 yr. old) press on the block. Just haven’t been using it enough. Plus, it looks like I’ll be having to move my studio in the not too distant future.

Asking $4,500 OBO. Comes with blankets and a bunch of ink. It can be disassembled enough to get it through a regular sized doorway.

Wow, what a beauty!

Save the date! Thursday, May 6th.

I’ll be opening my studio door next week for First Thursday. That’s May 6th. I’ll be there all day until 8:30 or 9 pm, so feel free to stop by early if you can’t later. If I don’t answer the door, I’m over at Uwajimaya buying supplies.

I’m across the street from the International District bus tunnel entrance. A perfect stop between Pioneer Square and Lawrimore Project.

Here’s a sample of new work:

MONA

Have you been to the Museum of Northwest Art? If you haven’t you should. It is located in La Conner, WA just a short drive north of Seattle.

The wonderful curator, Kathleen Moles has been mounting some very interesting shows so do yourself a favor and check it out.

This looks especially tasty:

RESONANCES: CONTEMPORARY ECHOES MODERN

March 13, 2010 – June 13, 2010
Kathleen and other curators pair artists of different generations together. Can’t wait to see it!

And don’t forget to say hello to Dirty Biter while in town:
