My paintings are being included in this group show, which takes place on Dec. 7, 2006 from 6-8 pm at 12 west 29th St. in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. A percentage of the profits will go to help protect and preserve land in the Hudson Valley. Hope to see you there!

Last Tuesday, the Art Dept. from the school where I teach took a staff development day trip to WSW in Rosendale, NY. We attended a bookmaking workshop for the first half of the day and concluded with a printmaking workshop and made some lovely monoprints. This piece is made with oil based inks, using plexi as a plate and stencils. I made a series of five, using the same plate with stencils, and reworking the ink and placement each time. It was such a fun way to spend a day!

"Orbs" was completed last year, 1/06. It is about 38" x 48" and is oil color on stretched canvas.

I have taken a small break from painting in the last two weeks and am working on some small collages. On Tuesday, I am spending the day at WSW, Women's Studio Workshop, a local art making studio specializing in artist book making and printmaking. I am attending an all day workshop on artist book making for students that will include both book binding techniques and non-toxic printmaking techniques.
