While in New Mexico to attend a friend’s wedding, I went to an etching club and busted out this print of a three legged coyote……
I’m not really a printmaker (I tend to prefer the “one off” quality of drawings or paintings), but I REALLY love the community aspect of printmaking.
So fun

@paxtongatepdx  used my riddle box in a house display for @streetofdreamspdx. In the lower right corner of the bookshelf. Looks pretty nice….

progress….

progress….

It can be really difficult to take risks with art. It’s already so fraught with doubt and second guessing. I’ve been particularly angsty and doubtful as of late…..lack of support or communication with galleries, dealing with studio problems and general stuckness.

Here’s to the beginning of trying to get out of that “stuckness”. It’s just a sketch really. An idea I’ve been gestating for awhile. Pretty interested to see where it’s gonna go.

Been slacking on Tumblr updates…..After a long hiatus, went to figure drawing studio last night. Rusty, but this is the best of the bunch.
I’ll take it.
