The theme this week for IF is fortune. I just finished this piece for my solo show that is opening at the end of the month in Long Beach, CA. It is titled "Never Let Go". The piece is all about passion and togetherness and they certainly do seem rich with love!

In February Dawbis and I decided to do a trade with each other. I love, love, love her work! She is an incredibly nice woman, and so talented! I have always admired her Flickr and I am SO excited to have one of her works in my home! I have temporarily hung the piece on a wall across from my office, so that every time I leave, the room I get to see it! That is me in the tree, with my cat Charlie, and Tom with the wings, and evil cat Lewis hanging from his feet.
As inevitably happens with most commissions I do, Dawn captured elements about our lives that I didn't give her details about. All of the "happy coincidences" as I like to call them, are so bang on. I am so blown away, and cant wait to figure out the pieces final home!

Design on a Dime
Big day today! HUGE! I was recently contacted by the wonderful folks over at Design on a Dime, a cool design show over on HGTV. If you haven't seen it yet, you must check it out! They have asked me to participate in an upcoming episode, and I am so happy to announce that I will be filming with them on Tuesday of next week!! I will be taking lots of pictures, of course! So stay tuned!

I hope that every one had a happy and restful weekend! We certainly had fun dressing my niece Emma up and trying to get her to be the bunny we know she can be! The pic is way too cute not to share! She is just edible!
I am going to be deeply engrossed in preparation this week. It is an exciting time, and I am proud to semi-announce that my first solo show will be opening at the end of this month! The kind folks over a Open in Long Beach have chosen my work to be the very first to hang in their brand new space! Once I know exact details I will share, but right now we are all just trying to coordinate! I am working hard to have new pieces for the venue, and to come up with a name for the show. I am so excited for the whole experience, and just a little scared too! I am sure it is going to be fine! Just fine. . . . More news to be posted as I learn the details!
