Oh my goodness, it has been a REALLY long time since I updated my personal blog.  As you may know, I opened a store! One Strange Bird opened on October 1st, 2011 and is host to ballsy craft and fine art by local Chicago artists and other national talent.  It has totally consumed me for the past three months, along with teaching three courses at Columbia College and participating in the One of a Kind show at the merch mart.  Lady Bird, my feathery company was in the Etsy pavillion....did I mention how much I love Etsy????

So...  I just took my piece down from the Blaque Lyte show at the Hyde Park art center.  That was pretty amazing!  I got to show with David Shirgley.  WOA...  I just drove the piece back to the studio on the top of my car yesterday. 

Let's see, other than that, I've been trying to get back into the swing of things in terms of painting.  I started a couple of small pieces for a show I've been asked to be in soon.  I've got to get busy.  Yes. I am still obsessed with ink painting and have been doing more and more research and practice.  Here are some of the latest attempts:
