I received some pretty special news last week and it is time that I shared it with you: the piece of art I am submitting for the 3rd Annual Love Show at the Launch Pad Gallery in Portland, was chosen to be included in their show card advertising the February event! I have only seen the card on-line and not in person (that will be happening this week), but my work is seen in the background with the show information superimposed on top. When Ben Pink, the curator of the show, called and informed me of my inclusion on the card, I worked very hard to act composed and cool, but inside I was bursting, my heart was pounding, and I was beside myself with disbelief, gratitude, and crazed excitement! Soon enough he'll see my red hair and know that I'm not all that cool and composed. . . but a wee bit crazy and nutty. Anyway, my piece is made up of 64 individual tiles, thus the title of the piece, Sixty-Four, each tile made from a family photograph: the good, the bad, the strange, the odd, the wonderful - they're all there and all represent love in some way. A sampling of the insanity:
