I know I am posting a lot about this show, but it feels like such a departure for me and I’m really proud of the work.  If it’s too much for you, I get it.  No hard feelings. Have a good Saturday!

the devil is in the details…

I ordered postcards today for my FREAK SHOW at Revolution Kitchen in Burlington, Vermont.  I love doing the work and the hustle required to finish the paintings.  I get sort of stuck with the final details.  This is when the fantasy of having a very detail oriented intern fills my daydreams…maybe someday my intern will come. 🙂

“jumping through hoops” at REVOLUTION KITCHEN

My new work is up in Burlington’s downtown vegetarian restaurant…trust me folks you won’t miss having meat options.  The food is amazing!  If you get a chance please go check out my FREAK SHOW—be sure and tell the staff you’re a friend of mine (and tip them handsomely).

The dress that is hanging with “jumping through hoops” was created by Maggie Pace and I for the ART HOP FASHION SHOW, STRUT in 2012.  It started out as wedding dress from Goodwill and ended up like this.  Maggie did some crazy stitch work with objects we found around the studio.  In the 11th hour leading up to the fashion show it wasn’t quite runway ready and my friend from Minneapolis, Marita Meinerts did some stitch work too.  I think it looks cool with stripey tights on this new girl.  She is going places!

I will be changing this show while it is up and swapping pieces out

reworking discarded pieces

Today in the studio I needed a board of a certain size and I didn’t want to run out to the hunt for one.  I started digging around and realized that I could easily part with this piece from 2008 that I never really liked anyway.  The new piece isn’t finished yet, but I worked with the shape and carving that already existed in the board.  Oh, I do love a makeover.  Hopefully I can show you the finished piece tomorrow.

untethered & untitled

PROCESS: This hot air balloon piece is titled, “untethered”.  Here are pictures of four stages of my creative process.  This is very time consuming work and challenging to create so many new pieces in just a few weeks.  It’s a lot of waiting for the last layer to “cure” before I can sand, carve and seal.  I love every part of the process and there is so much discovery in each piece I create.  This work is very meditative for me.

I am hanging the show this Thursday at an amazing vegetarian restaurant in Burlington, Vermont—Revolution Kitchen.
