I just received the order of postcards for my upcoming solo show at RedRocks - Collage: Painting with Paper. The show will run from July 1st until the 31st, with an opening reception on July 7th. You can see from the postcard images above that the featured image is a collage called "Blue Rhino." I've probably mentioned how I have a tendency of liking all things blue. And when I'm tired of incorporating blue into realistic scenes, I like to use arbitrary color so I can use blue for all different kinds of animals.

At the moment I'm dealing with the mad rush to get things done for the exhibit. Solo shows can be a bit stressful with all the marketing involved, although at the same time, once you manage to pull off everything it's such a rewarding feeling. But I must admit, it's a bit of a relief that my next solo show won't occur until the beginning of next year (more time for planning it!).

In other news, I'm pleased to announce that I'm putting the finishing touches on my children's book. It should be ready for print this weekend!

Hi Megan. Thought I'd stop by to see your work and say "hello" since we are together in an article in the July/Aug Somerset Studios mag.
Our article is also called "painting with paper" and it was nice to see how our two different styles in this process look so nice together.
Much luck with your show.
