garden pets

Finally! People have been asking for weather-proof sculptures from me for ages. And these guys just get better every year if they are left outside to put on moss. My new concrete garden sculptures will be available, among lots of other work, at the Kennedy School in NE Portland next weekend. I'm going to be part of the Siren Nation Art and Craft Sale. Sunday, November 15th, 10am to 4pm. Have a beer with your art.

a summer meadow

I have created a summer meadow for A Splendid Summer Show at Off The Walls Gallery in the charming town of Shelton , Washington. Local artists Glenhelen Smither and Jim Knull also contribute to the show. Shelton is at the southern tip of the Puget Sound and less than half an hour drive from Olympia, WA. Swing by if you are planning a trip to the Olympic Peninsula this summer!

4 new squares

Specially made for the 88 Strong group show at The Goodfoot. For this show the invited artists are given a bunch of amusing themes to choose from and apparently I am a sucker for that kind of thing. These were the ones I chose: Body Hair Is The New Black, Catfish, Daredevil and Owl Babies. How could I resist? Reception is on Thursday the 25th of June, 5pm until midnight at The Goodfoot 2845 SE Stark, Portland Oregon. This is another cash and carry show and all art goes for $ 50 a pop. They are even framed- I'd call that a bargain. The Goodfoot is a bar, so you can combine your drinking with your culture that night.

goodbye little goats

I found this rummaging through the files on my computer. I had played around with illustrating the fairy tale about the 7 little goats whose mom leaves them home alone. Later the wolf tricks them into opening the door for him and all but the littlest one get eaten. Mom just cuts open the wolf while he's asleep and frees her children. A little bit gruesome you think? Nah...



It's about to happen. Little Things will be back at the Guardino Gallery November 28th to December 28th. Yay! I love this group show, where purchased art can be taken home straight off the wall. Pieces are all 7" and under, made by dozens of different artists. I made a small army of Royals of many different species. Opening reception on November 28th 6-9pm.


natural wonders


My root ghosts will be part of the Siren Nation Art Show this week. It's a group show of Pacific NW women artists and this year's theme is Natural Wonders. Wonderful! The show opens Thursday November 6th at Albina Press on Hawthorne, former location of mine and Sarah Hall's River Without End. Opening reception 6pm to 8pm. Here is also the facebook link .
