Good productive week!

Hard to believe another week has flown by. Sent off another proposal, working away on my tree rings series, and busy cleaning up my sculpture Twin Totems. The weather has been great which makes me happy while working in my shop. The fresh air is welcome while I carve and make dust.
Dug an aspen tree out of my wood pile to dry in the shop. Almost time to start in on another totem. I will have work in a new gallery in Carbondale, Colorado, hopefully by July. Looking forward to the summer. Heading down to First Friday Art Walk tonight. Should be a perfect night.

Circles in Nature series

I'm currently working on a new series for a group show to be held at the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder, Colorado. The opening is June 26th. These new works are all wall reliefs inspired by circles that appear in nature as patterns. Primarily I am using tree growth rings as visual reference. There will be three pieces with circle shapes that have textured rings within. It's been a construction challenge but I'm am a very excited about the outcome. I will also have a four panel piece that uses ripple rings created from water drops as a visual. Other exciting news is that the Aurora Public Art program purchased my sculpture Twin Totems to be permanently placed at the entrance of the Aurora History Museum. It will be installed early summer. Also St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction purchased Drip Drop to add to their collection. I hope that you have the opportunity to see these pieces in the upcoming months.
