buy some

Okay! So I've been invited to take part in a one-day art sale Dec. 15th down in Burlington. Sort of off the beaten path of Burlington shoppers, but if I get the word out enough perhaps there will be substantial traffic! Coincidentally, it's in the same warehouse my grandparents used to have the family appliance shop. 'Tis a small small world.

Consider yerselves invited, though time of sale is TBA.

In addition to underwater paintings, I'll have a weird little series of (tiny) monster-dress paintings, and some creatures too. Kind of an odd mix, but I aim to have some sort of common thread throughout.

My Seahorse piece finally got picked up this weekend, so that's another bit of dough for the art-fund. Including two tiny paintings at Open Studio in May, that makes four pieces sold this year. It's a nice, encouraging bump!

new member of the family

and he's full-grown too!
Please say your hellos to Filbert Appleshrug.
Made by this fine seamstress, he's come to us as a wedding gift from my dear Cali-bound friend e. Rick got to see him first, as he arrived in e's car, but I met him later that night upon walking into our rather dark living room. Please note tE'he white fur and you can imagine the eerie glow. Apparently my reaction was something to be savored. And e just about got his ribs crushed in many thank you hugs.

He is taller than me, though his appendages have a hard time staying put when standing upright. He's really a couch boy (his hands are perfectly shaped for holding the remote...) Fully detachable head, arms and legs. Red chennile-type fur at each seperation point.
We love him.
And I think e will miss him.

Oh, by the way I paint
