Streets, Roads, Paths, lead to Roby King Gallery

In addition to the upcoming (May) Spring Vashon Artist Studio Tour I will also be showing on Bainbridge Island with Roby King Gallery in their Streets, Roads, Paths, group exhibition.  The exhibit opens Friday May 6 and runs through the 28th. 

New work I have created for this show expresses my pleasure in a daily routine; walking the dog.  At right is my Monotype, The Aki Walk. 

Aki is my 15 month old Shiba Inu and with the advent of Spring the walk for her has become all about chasing Robins.  Bless whoever invented those spring loaded, self retracting dog leads!

The format, technique and oblique perspective is intended to reference Japanese Art and Print.  Shiba Inu's are a Japanese dog breed.

The Aki Walk is a Monotype Print with Gold Leaf and measures   24.25 x 7 in.

Time for the Art Studio Tour

The Vashon Island Spring Studio Tour is on the horizon.  The first two weekends in May, 7-8 & 14-15, Vashon Artists open their studios for a public, self guided tour.

For the first time this year I am on the Spring tour and even on the cover of the brochure. I have been printing and painting, even working on some garden art for this event and will be writing the next several blogs about the imagery I have created. 

The image for the brochure (above) is called Nature's Priest.  Here is a link for the event and map of artists studios on the tour.
