Here’s my latest animal piece. The weekend has been a little hectic for me – I was busy getting prepared for a last minute exhibition I’m installing tomorrow morning/afternoon. Not to mention trying to get organized for my larger exhibitions that are coming up in the next few months. Lots of work on mailing lists and mapping out what needs to get done in the next few days.I’m also beginning to make some plans with heading in a different direction with the way I use my blog. I want to continue to use it to post about my projects, recently finished artwork, and exhibitions, but I’d like to turn it into something that is more interactive for readers. I’m thinking of interviewing other artists and posting the interviews here, writing reviews of other exhibitions/museums, and creating a weekly project. It will be a while until I get everything organized, but I’m looking forward to changing gears.

Another zoo-inspired piece. These animal pieces are making me want to start working on a children’s book. Once my hectic schedule of exhibitions passes by after the summer, I’ll have a bit more time to tackle a plot and start thinking up characters. But we’ll see, perhaps I’ll have some time to work on this before then.

Here’s my latest animal collage which is actually quite fitting for me right now – I’m feeling a lot like this guy. D.C. was hit with a snow blizzard, so I’ve been snowed in the past few days just lounging around.

And it’s finished.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We had a beautiful snow day on Saturday – much to my surprise, I woke up to a winter wonderland.
