I'm thrilled to be part of this wonderful program, pdx-csa.com. Ten artists will pre-sale work, a series of 20 paintings, and let collectors in on their progress as they paint. It's new, innovative and definitely catching on! You can order your yet-to-be-painted-but-sure-to-be-a-happy-surprise painting now through June 15th.
Can't wait for PDXOS these next two weekends! It's so much fun to open my studio and meet so many new people! You can get your tickets now and it gets you into 95 working artist's studios to see what they do firsthand. Great event - don't miss it! http://www.portlandopenstudios.com
Opening for the Portland Open Studios Preview exhibit - Friday night at Muse Art and Design on Hawthorne. See my exhibits page for the full details about artists participating.
I spent Saturday demoing my work at Muse Art and Design on Hawthorne. It was really a lot of fun to get to know the great people at Muse and interact with customers. Lots of good questions about encaustic and painting in general. Great day!
Come and see my encaustic paintings showing in the Special Exhibit in the Festival of Arts: Fire and Water - Contrasts in Expression. My work will show along with other painters, sculptors and glass artists. The exhibit runs for just three days, June 20th, 21st and 22nd.

Here's a little bit more about the Glyph vision:
Located in the North Park Blocks in the Pearl District, Glyph Café & Arts Space offers a relaxed and inviting gathering place for sharing conversation, light fare, tea, coffee & drinks with friends.
The glyph – as one of the earliest forms of visual art and writing – expresses our mission: to provide a crossroads where Portland’s diverse visual and literary arts communities can meet to share ideas and projects.
Every 1-2 months Glyph features a local artist and writer to exhibit their work in tandem. We invite artists working in painting, printmaking, multimedia works on paper and letterpress to show their work and participate in a first Thursday opening. Invited writers perform a reading of their poems, short stories, or longer-form fiction at a special evening event and their writing and related ephemera are displayed in the cafe's custom-built shadow box tables.
We installed our exhibit at Guardino Gallery yesterday on Alberta street. Come out tonight to see my encaustic paintings paired with Sam Hingston's sculptures tonight from 6-9. Hope to see you there!
Spending the day laying out all of the new panels for the Guardino exhibit and getting them packed up to go. I've added about twenty new panels to my existing body of work over the last several months - many of the them are larger pieces. I'm looking forward to finishing up with the install tomorrow - phew! Come out for the opening reception Saturday night, from 6-9.
I'll be showing in January at Guardino Gallery on NE Alberta along with wood sculptor, Sam Hingston. Check out his beautiful work on his website here . I'll provide more details on the opening soon, but I'm very excited about this show.
My new exhibit, Connectivity - works in encaustic and mixed media, opens tonight at the Realty Trust Gallery in Lake Oswego. Reception begins at 5pm.
