|"Entrusted" Oil/Cold Wax/Vintage Letter on Panel|
This new piece was inspired by the haiku below:
The rains of May
Here is a paper parcel
Entrusted to me long ago
I'm hard at work on my new book for North Light. This involves working on several things at once. I'm creating a bunch of new pieces and working on many at a time. It's exciting for me to see some new developments in my work as a result of experimentation and working in the studio more often. Since my website is not working well (it is about to be updated) I am showing these new pieces here.

In addition to making art, one of my recent tasks was to create what's called a Page Plan. This means that I layout where everything in the book will go, although the North Light Book designer will improve on this a great deal. Doing the Page Plan is useful for seeing what will go where, what order to put things in, how much art I'll need, the materials I'll need to take, and what I can fit into 143 pages. Needless to say, I've revised over and over, and more revisions will come later on.

I'm also in the process of writing the "Stepouts." These are the captions for the step by step instructions for each chapter in the book. These instructions will be different from the last book. I will not attempt to show how to create a particular piece. Rather, I'll show lots of techniques and weird tools to get certain effects for the reader to play with and to use to create their own unique pieces.This fall I will go to Cincinnati to have pictures taken of my hand performing each step. Before I go, it will be manicure time!
