New direction

The wood and resin work continues to evolve.  There is something about capturing an idea, in a liquid material that turns solid, that really intrigues me.  The resin can be colored, transparent, layered. The possibilities, to me, are limitless.  Recently I wanted to have some hand drawn elements.  I started by using fragments of older drawings and incorporating them in the resin.  Dissatisfied with the results, I started to draw--again.  My hand is not as steady but the results have been very encouraging.  I am listing the sizes, as most of them are smaller than I have been working.

The Gallery at Dungeness Design in Sequim





I am currently exhibiting my new work at a new alternative space in Sequim. Architect Karla Forsbeck (fellow Cal graduate) owns and operates the gallery. It is a turn of the century (1900) house that she has remodeled and where she has her office. The work has punch and is a nice contrast to the gray days of winter. However, when the sun shines you feel like you could be anywhere. Titles of pieces above, Strait Mist, Incubator, Fall.
