more from the collection

I spent the evening going through a few portfolios. Below are some select images from the exchanges. I need a framing genie. *poof* and everything is beautifully framed. The issue with working in frame shops for years has become that it is like pulling teeth to frame anything. This may be why my work turned into installation and works on panel. The exchanges were "Rocky Mountain Response" organized by Melanie Yazzie after RMPA in Salt Lake City and "Disguise" juried by Alexa Unser and David Wischer.

My piece for the "Disguise" portfolio. I believe I was struggling with the weight of moving, leaving grad school, having our first child. I also needed new jeans apparently. Softground etching over a lasercut relief surface.

Prints and pots

rolled out a new Zamenhof's Trials piece to fill a void in the house and finally hung some prints from the collection. My aversion to framing notwithstanding it is great to have Christa Carleton and Jason Clark on the wall. They are both right in front of the dinner table and have provided some good conversations with the kiddos
