First night of internet in warm room...

Drawing class starts in 2 days...a studio dedicated to instructional and demonstration projects is being set up as I speak. Willow Springs is feeling more and more like an art warehouse similar to many I have envied in the city. Only at a peaceful country pace what with all the sculptures, paintin', construction, seed planting, cabin hoppin, food cookin, and music playin goodness you can handle.

For your enjoyment...a self portrait done to promote my class

And for your further enjoyment,
This too cool picture of sonic youth looking really dreamy...

My lovely kitten cat Avery, was the subject.

Updates: Drawing Class, and you guessed it, RAINBOWS!

I am so excited to start teaching at Willow Springs! It is a beautiful place to facilitate a drawing class and I am extra amped to have new knowledge and inspiration to start this project.

I have been working away in my studio, every day and in to the night. Here's a glimpse at a resting point, featuring Avery, rainbows and melted candles.

Awesome friends up on the ridge stop in to say hello and we get crazy with creative stuff, like adding line work to otherwise boring clothing..

Can't ask for much more awesomeness right now...but I will keep it comin' just the same
