Drawing, writing, shivering.

So tomorrow night it's supposed to fall to 10 degrees here in the Twin Cities. I expected as much, just not this early in the year; even the natives are saying it's unusual.

So perhaps I will stay inside and make more art.

Above, Narcissus Bulb, about 4 x 7".

Meanwhile, you can see my blog for more about the things I've seen up here of late. There is so much going on here that if it were a paying gig I could write about art full time.

I don't really mind the cold here; I'm going to adjust and be fine. Not much else to say tonight, really. I'll try again tomorrow.

Writing and teaching NEWS

A quick update: I am now the new Minneapolis Visual Arts Examiner! Basically this means I go do Art Things and then talk about them, here:

Tracie's page

Quick update Part Two: I'll soon be teaching drawing classes at the Bloomington Art Center, an amazing place; I can't wait!

New Drawing

The Bone I Found and What I Made of It

Mixed media on paper, 11 x 13.5"

The bone is real; I found it in the Everglades about a year and a half ago. Immediately I thought of lizards, huge snakes, or even Oriental dragons.

Of course, it turned out to be none of those things, but I'll save its actual identity for another day and a future piece of art.
