December is here already!

 I missed a post in November- Busy times. The first news is that I have several pieces in a show that opens tonight  at Ricochet Gallery here in Albuquerque. It is The Big Queer Show featuring works by artists from the LGBT community here. The show will be up the month of December. Albuquerque Peeps I hope you can see the show- the diversity of work is wonderful.

I have been working on prepping for that show and I will share a picture of some of my work- here are 19 hand collages that are framed- I love how they hung these at Ricochet.


Here are a few things from The Gents art retreat.  We often make gifts for each other when we get together.  I had made several winged angels and decided Brian and John needed to have wings.

One of the things I made on the retreat was this book- a variation on Henrik Dresher's seeded notebook project.  I took a large sheet of paper and collaged on it and cut it up and folded the pieces to make a book. The collaged parts appeared randomly- then I finished each spread with more collage. I usually monoprint or paint the background but I liked this one with the stark white.  I saw this very old children's book John had brought-and Terry was the main character. He gave it to me to cut up. That will do it for this post.  Thanks for taking time to look and read.
