Inhale: Land Stewardship for Cleaner Air

The Arts Council of Kern County Creating Community Artist-In-Residence Exhibition, "Inhale" was breathtaking. (I know...I couldn't help myself.)

Here are are few snapshots from my room where I introduced a simple formula each of us could apply to help us improve the air quality in our community.



Connect+Filter+Plant=Breathe


Simple, right?

Nose to the Studio Grindstone

Nothing like a tight deadline to force me put in the needed hours in the studio. What is it about procrastination and cramming? I would love to put in a daily 2 to 3 studio hours an evening, but no...I have to wait until the week before a piece is due and put in 6 hour evenings and 12 hour weekends, ugh.

BUT...I have a beauty to show for the upcoming www.BMOA.org art show opening in June. I'm only going to give you a peek.

Oh, I'm so excited about this one.


So, today it and I had an official photo shoot at the Bakersfield Californian. I looked like a dork, but this little bugger was looking good.

It is 9:00 pm and I'm going to bed early.

A little hand sewing and heart cutting...
