My feet are in Miami and my heart is over NY

Meditation never seems to work for me. My head pops open and I travel hither and yon. Here is one map collage illustrating such an event.

Michael's ephemeral Ice show at Deering

Kim Yantis walked a tour through the culminating residency art exhibition at the Deering estate last night. Michael gave a nice talk to a good sized crowd, many friends included, about his 8 framed mixed media botanicals and his 6 giant news print sketches, all a semblance of "field notes". In the main room, his bouquet melted in the Miami evening. Lovely, humorous, colorful.

He's brilliant.

writing is on the wall

My studio in the Miami Falls district, the Arthouse, is hosting a soft opening this Friday. All of us hope to be there, with food and wine, and working. I have been spending time thinking of why I need a studio and the writing is on the wall.

My thoughts have vanished, and missed the show!

Lost piece for the Akin show! Since moving to Miami I have spent a lot more time in my own head. I guess up north I had the distractions of family and friends...
anyway... here I am. Last July I made a series of thought bubbles to hang on the wall near the mounted antelopes at the Akin Museum, but first they were accidentally packed and sent to the wrong place, and then, rightly delivered, they were mislaid. "Not meant to be part of the show". Like thoughts I once had, they have vanished!

Akin Opening today!!! 1-5

Live music, lots of art, and interesting juxtapositions!

Be sure to take a good look around.

Wish I could be there.

Should be good.

Hug Bibi.

Slapping paint

A little playful mixed media results in some pretty strange works!

Going to see Max

I am taking the weekend to go visit my son Max at his college.
Here is a sketch of my Max in the strawberry fields and my friend Leone's Max in the pool... two Max's on a shelf! I can say for sure they are a big source of love and light in our hearts.
