Hi all I have to say this Fall has been just like my whole past two years kind of fucked up and crazy.  So here is some news, I have been with out a studio for about 2 months now,  new one should be ready real so though and I am super excited to meet new people and get back to work.  Second bit is that I just got a new to me laptop since my other one crashed back in September and it is going to be a bit before I start posting pic's again.  I am teaching again back up in St. Joe Mo at MWSU I have 3 classes this semester so that's pretty awesome and the more I work up there the more I realize I need to go back to school and get my MFA.  Still have a solo show at City Ice Arts this Spring first friday of March 2014 still no show title though.  Hoping to go visit my family for xmas that is all.

Mural with paintings

Here is a shot from Open Studios again.  I painted a mural and installed eight paintings on top.  The mural is something I am considering doing in a future exhibition.  Half of these paintings are finished and half are not.
