This coming January I am excited to be a part of Adams State University’s Rare A.I.R. artist-in-residence program in Colorado. I was accepted to work on my State of the Union series, which at this point consists of my first painting Florida.
The project will eventually have paintings of all of the states with the positive images we associate with that state- state flag, state animal, slogan, and their attractions, and in bubbles, some of the shameful things that go on with the animals of that state.
I look forward to almost three weeks of uninterrupted painting in the provided studio space, with support and sharing with the faculty and students there.
I was happy to present my artwork and story for the series You Art What You Eat at the Boston Veg Food Fest as part of the Compassion Arts Festival. Other presenters included composer and performer Michael Harren and poet, musician and performer Donald Vincent aka Mr. Hip.
