Yesterday was our last official day of Open Studios down at Kuhl Frames + Art (though the show remains up through June 27th, on which day we'll again gallery sit from 11-4).
Thank you to all our visitors, and friends old & new. The show was the maiden voyage of some new-ish work, and it was great to get feeback on it, and especially have some folks really connect with what I'm trying to do. A favorite quote from yesterday:..."it's like a ballet-- or symphony-- of molecules..."
After last weekend, Tony and I were talking about Artist Residencies-- ones we've gone on, or self-created; we've both experienced summers that have been expansively creative periods. After a quick get-away, we look forward to re-creating some of those conditions right here at home this summer. I darted into San Francisco last week to catch a couple of shows before they ended last week, and well, I'm feeling just generally inspired.
Come on, Summer!

Yes, I'm drawing in a garden in Sebastopol while housesitting, seven years before we moved up this way.
