I never thought I would ever say that not knowing exactly where I want my art to go would be liberating. And, it isn’t really. But, this process of finding it is. I have work ready for the next shows, so I am covered until May. And, my one-person in May is one that I could probably do a retro. Cross my fingers on that.
So, the exercises and questions continue. What’s fun about these periods is I visit mediums I don’t usually. Today was all about markers and pencil.

Consolidation under one roof
This will be the last post here.
You are all welcome to join me at “artinsmallplaces”, where I will be posting new art and the rants of the day. Since I returned home at the end of last month, I have set my sights on making more money off my photography, and preparing new work for upcoming commitments.
I will leave this blog with this:
It is ready to drop into a shadowbox frame. Mixed-media including a flag pin in the middle of Mitty’s forehead. Can’t say he isn’t patriotic.
And, to add to what I left there, here’s the newest, just barely past conception. (No abortion jokes, please 😉 )
These new works are part of a new direction as I try to meld political ideals and visual art ideas and diversify the materials used. I am calling this new body “Points of Skew”.
The upcoming show at the Rice Library will look a lot like the shows of the past year. I now have the 5 pieces from The Gallery at 100 Market-that show came down Saturday. I may bring home the two unframed canvases (12″x12″) that Malynda has at the Gatehouse to accompany them.
The show that will go up Caffe Kilim will be political. The owners love work that breeds conversation. It’s not a big space, but I still have work to do. (I have some old work that can be used, if necessary.) That show will open the 1st of December.
