solo show at Tiny’s in September

I will be showing at Tiny’s Coffee near SE Hawthorne Blvd and 12th Ave during the month of September! Installation may be in the next day or so, and I will have an official flyer announcing the reception coming soon (I’m thinking for the middle of the month). I’m currently working on a painting that I’d like to swap into the exhibit later. First solo show in Portland (and in a super duper long time)!

Library Whale, phase 1

Finished the first step of carving and making a couple rough looking woodblock prints on butcher paper. The next step will be actually constructing the box/shelf, which means I’m gonna have to find some available power saws and screws (this will be a challenge!).  I found myself almost speechless at a p/t job interview today, I really don’t know why I was so terrified. It surprised me.  I haven’t stuttered/blanked like that in a very long time.  I came home and sent a follow up/thank you email to try and soften my clumsiness.  At least to try.  I worked more on the whale tonight to bring my head (and my confidence) back into the game. The whale can’t really decide whether to stay full and solid or fade.
