Upcoming Shows

I have been concentrating on teaching my art classes the past few months. This is very rewarding and I love the interaction I have with my students in the community. However, I told myself that I needed to devote more time to my work. I am making a concerted effort to paint, draw, and enter more shows during the spring and summer. I will also be exploring pastel plein air painting with the Ann Arbor Women Artists Plein Air Group, led by Sandy DeFazio, a great local artist who specializes in plein air oils of local scenes.

LOCALLY GROWN STILL LIFE #2

The Next Detroit Colored Pencil Society Show is being hung at the Lotus Arts Gallery in Plymouth,MI. It will be there through the month of April.
I am honored to have a couple of pieces hanging in this show. Reception is Saturday, April 10 from 6 - 8 PM.
the address is 995 West Ann Arbor Trail, Plymouth, MI.

This new piece continues the motif of the first Locally Grown Still Life. This is a montage of veggies and fruits using the complementary color palette of yellows and violets. I am finding joy in the produce! I see happiness in food, and enjoy making compositions with many elements on a patterned background.
