Across the Universe

New work created for an exhibit "Global Views", currently at Polk County Heritage Gallery, 111 Court Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50309.

This new work is a progression of my mixed media work, and in my opinion one of the best works to date.  This is 48 x 60 inches on linen and contains: acrylic, ink, crushed garnet, iron oxide, fiber, glass spheres, glass nuggets, beach glass, interference, glitter, mica flake, and variety of other dry and wet acrylic mix-in mediums.

Reception will be held on Friday, September 14th, from 5PM - 8PM.  Come visit the exhibit, and see me and my artwork.  Polk County Heritage Gallery will also participate in this year's ArtStop.

Making Art with Kids



Today was quite inspirational.  I hosted a birthday party at my studio with 11 year old Morgan and her friends.  We made art together and it was really fun.  After the party ended, I was immersed into it myself for a while.  Great day!
