Out of chaos, comes wonderful surprises

It’s been a busy couple of weeks multi-tasking and checking things off my to-do list to get ready for this weekend’s Fort Collins Studio Tour.  To some, this may look like chaos personified, but I have a certain talent for staying pretty calm in the midst of a lot going on. So I know that everything will eventually find it’s wall space, and be ready for the weekend.

Last year was my first time participating, although I’ve lived here for 20 years.   But it was a very enjoyable experience to connect directly with appreciative visitors and collectors. And, as I go through my racks and flat file drawers, I’ve discovered some long lost treasures from years of prolifically working away.

“Grasslands”, the latest series of paintings / mixed media pieces I’ve been working on explores grasses and their environments. Mostly from a bug’s viewpoint, or someone lying on their stomach.

But truthfully, looking back, I’ve always had an interest in things tangled and layered.  I used to be quite the knitter as well!

I want to have lots of affordable pieces available

Looking forward to a great weekend. You can see more information and a map here

I will have lots of very affordable work priced at $100 or much less!
