Collecting is a form of madness. It's not a bad obsession. It's not a drug addiction. It's a good addiction. It keeps you out of trouble.
After working my butt off, the opening was complete. Featuring artist Julia Johnson and myself we looked to represent the female figure with its connection to the Earth. Thanks to the crowd that came, it was truly a blast! Here is a sampling of my work. More pictures to come of the opening party at Pure Wine Cafe. The show runs from June through August.

Hard Hats Required
When life is stressful, I find it hard to paint. My hairdresser recently told me when she gets stressed and distracted she has a conversation with herself. She says, "Dawn, just do good hair." I'm taking that advice to the canvas. "Mary just do good art."
Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you're sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that's almost never the case.
