Girl with Lucsious Corn Crop
Oil on 8" canvas. The most curent from my new series; Free-Range Figmentum.
I'm excited about making things up. It just gives me a giggle. The whole farm idea is no accident, I've been visiting my friend Lizzie's amazing permaculture ranch for over a year now. Taking it all in and getting inspired. And not that I have to make things up, there's plenty that's real to go on. There's so much potential for the imagination, everywhere you look is a story unfolding. New animals being born and new people gathering, the season turning, it's constant! I haven't been this excited since the hogs ate grandma...but really, the farm is a funny place, have you ever watched animals mingle freely? Maybe it's just me getting old-er, finding simple pleasures to be a real hoot. My solo exhibit hangs in October for one month at Sewell Gallery of Fine Art in Eureka. The reception is the first Saturday, Arts Alive! 6-9pm, I hope to see you!
