I am going to be in a group show that opens at the Swan Coach House Gallery next thursday called "Little Things Mean a Lot". its one of my all time favorite shows: everything has to be smaller than 8x8". There are lots of artists in it so you get to see many styles and framing approaches. i found this vintage frame in a junk shop and snapped it up. boy i wish i could find more of them because they are so charming.
i may just keep this little piece though. the look on the womans face is the mix of resolve and survivorship i feel while looking out towards the storm. the storm i believe we are in. the way she holds that hen is a metaphor for how i hold on to chickory like my life depends on it. because it does. i also really like the fine red halo i outlined her hair with. im going to have to remember that little trick cause it works so well. you know, when i make a work of art; they are all for me. are all ya'll like that too?
today is a beautiful crisp day. i am going to treat myself to a ride to town in the old gray truck.
