Some summer news...

seen but not heard
(there's so much more to it than this)


sun, rain and a sea of color
(hello summer)


everything has it's place
(but some things are always shifting)

Summer is up and running in these parts with a bit of rain induced coziness. It's funny how even on a 70 degree day the wind and rain can bring about a chill that makes the wool socks a must in June. My oldest is attending a 3 week prep class at the high school every day and while she gets out the door early with Chuck the house seems so quiet with just the boys, the dogs and the chicks. Actually the chicks are getting louder by the day and flitting and flying about in their new expanded digs. I'll share a few photos (or maybe a video if i can figure that out) of them soon. We'll be taking them outside for the 1st time this weekend if the rain holds off and the temperature really reaches 80. I can tell these girls are ready for a little outdoor adventure (of course they will be safely enclosed in hardware cloth to protect them from the foxes, raccoons, hawks, falcons and stray cats we have around here). I am so happy to let you know that I was invited to be a part of ETA 10 which runs from September 1st thru October 2nd at Nahcotta Gallery in NH. I love being a part of this amazing series of shows and have started a small body of work for the show which I'm really excited about that I hope to share a bit of next week. The other summer news is that 2 of my paintings were selected to be a part of the "Autobiography" exhibit at this years' Milwaukee Avenue Art Fair here in Chicago(7/29-31). I haven't shown work locally in a while and will be sure to post more details once they are ironed out. I hope your summer is off to a creative, inspiring and engaging start...
