Bryant Street Birds

Trish caught this coming out of her studio the other day. Now she's begun to recognize what I'm looking for, and send me photos she thinks I'll be able to use in the mixed media pieces. Today, on our way back to the Mission from Hunters Point Shipyard Open Studios she said "stop the car, I have to get that for you!" I really love that. And then the Giants won, too!

Electric Ivy

I want to thank everyone who came out for Open Studios this weekend. Trish and I both received mountains of love and support, making this one of our most successful Open Studios to date. This piece is now in Lee Cline's home, and now I have one of her amazing water colors. We traded a bird for birds. Yeah!

Up There

I caught this guy hanging out on my neighbor's roof and managed to get one shot off before he flew away. Have you noticed there are more crows around lately? According to the Birmingham News, crows have begun migrating to urban areas, preferring the luxury of easy pickings on garbage days and the safety of fewer predators. And I was just thinking it's because I've begun to look up.

Berry Picking

Here's a little preview of what you'll see if you come out to Open Studios next weekend. I'll be showing at 1890 Bryant with Trish and all the other fabulous artists at the 1890 Bryant Street Studios. I'm excited about this show, lot's of new bird images found while wondering around the City as well as some new drawings turned into encaustic mixed media pieces!
