on the Farm"
I'm having a solo show of new scratchboard works in April at the Art Can Heal gallery at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital in Auburn, CA. I don't know the official opening date yet, but I'll send out an announcement when I have the details. Below are two of the works that will be in the show, which features drawings on black scratchboard. I'm working feverishly to complete 15 new drawings of assorted farm animals, plus the sunflower and a vintage Ford tractor. I've been scanning the drawings in various stages, you can see the progress in this album.
Vernal Pool Illustrations
For Signage at Jepson Prairie Preserve
In December of last year, I laid down a lot of ink when I took on a job to create illustrations for vernal pool signage that will eventually be installed at the Jepson Prairie Preserve. The illustrations and sign designs are mostly ready, although there may be some edits down the road, since funding still needs to be raised for the sign fabrication and installation. The signs will be laser-etched metal, so I drew the illustrations in pen. Line drawings were the best style for this type of sign. You can see additional drawings and read more about this project on my blog. If you're interested in making a donation of any amount toward the sign fabrication and installation, please let me know and I'll contact you when the fund-raising for that phase begins.
