Toucan Samantha

"Toucan Samantha"
Collage on paper
12"x16"

There's already a Toucan Sam, so why not introduce people to his female counterpart, Toucan Samantha? I had fun working on this one - especially with the fragments of images I used for the background.

Anyway, where have I been? It's been a while since my last post! Well, the past few days I've been spending a lot of time moving out of my apartment. I'm going to move to a new place fairly soon, and the move has really consumed the majority of my free time. I've still put in a few hours here and there in the studio, and I have a few pieces I've completed there that I need to take home to photograph.

I'm also beginning to prep for the opening reception of my solo show "Stories in Paper," which opens next week, July 8th. I'm looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.

Quite busy .. sound frenetic to me. I thing South American birds are truly exotic and quite huge.
