MuseHub Site Banner

Okay…I admit it. I am super proud of this one. This is for the MuseHub.biz website I just recently did an interview with. It’s an awesome new directory service for freelance writers and artists and it’s growing fast. (And no, Lauren didn’t ask me to write that, I just dig her site.)

Anyway, check ’em out if you haven’t already. You can do so by clicking the image below. As for me, I’ve gotta get ready for YART this Saturday! I’ll be posting about that soon.

MuseHub podcast interview

I am both proud and humbled (if that’s possible?) to announce that I just did my first podcast, over at MuseHub, with my longtime friend and colleague Lauren Tharp of LittleZotz Writing!

We talked about all sorts of things, including our approaches to freelance work and all the various and sundry projects and shows I’ve got going on now and in the past. Thanks to Lauren’s editing wizardry, I didn’t embarrass myself!

PG and the Art of Collective Mythmaking VI

It’s that time again! The Ides of March were upon us when PG Cafe and Gallery opened their awesome annual group myth-themed show. Our work will hang until April 20 and there’s some awesome stuff there this year. I’ll try to do a posting of a few different pieces if I get the chance, but admittedly March is one of my more insane months so we’ll see. Possibly closer to show closing to remind people to get out there!

In the meantime, here’s the piece I have in the show. Some lucky person has already claimed the first 16×20 archival canvas of “The Return of Cortes Quetzalcoatl,” but I’ll try to have smaller prints in time for Spring YART.

Cortes-Quetzalcoatl_sandpaperdaisy

The story behind this one is pretty simple: there’s an old story that Moctezuma II may have tried to welcome Hernan Cortes because he believed the conquistador was actually the returning god Quetzalcoatl. If this was the case, Moctezuma’s mistake may have cost his people everything.

However, many historians believe this story is just a myth.

So, either the anecdote is a myth, or Moctezuma and his people were destroyed by believing the myth of the returning god. Either way, I figured it was a nice piece for the Collective Myth-Making show! It’s pretty darn dark though…behind the skeletal Cortes (who resembles a conquistador Grim Reaper) burns the once-stunning city of Tenochtitlan.

The Politics of Imagination

The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is currently hosting a group show of female illustrators! I’m privileged to have my stuff hanging next to the art of several truly amazing women.

Here are a few highlights from the show but as always, if you want to see more…you’ll just have to go!

PREMORSE solo show at PG

I have a solo art show of 39 pieces ranging from $20-$90 up at PG Cafe & Gallery, 1418 W. Franklin Street, Evansville IN. Show runs until October 12.

Here’s some pieces for sale at PREMORSE:

Sorry for the photo quality, they’re just phone snapshots. I was told by the people who attended the opening that the printed and framed art was in fact more bright/brilliant than the art as it appears online, so make of that what you will.

TWIN SOLO SHOWS: STURM UND DRANG

“Twin solo shows” probably sounds a little weird, but basically I’ve got exhibitions running concurrently at The Dapper Pig and Blick Art Materials, both in Evansville, Indiana. They both run through June!

Each show is all 16×20 canvases, all $85 each which is WAY less than my canvases typically go for. So feel free to go take advantage of the sale! I think it’s something like 20 works in all, possibly more. (I hung the shows in a bit of a flurry.)

FROM THE STURM ARTIST STATEMENT: You’re seeing half of a double show I’m doing here & at Blick Arts for the month of June. The shows are “Sturm und Drang” (Storm and Stress) and this is the STURM part! I’ve had a rough year as a mom and a daughter, but I’m still hanging in there with the ones I love. This show is our victory.

STURM (STORM), hosted at The Dapper Pig, includes The Pretty Sun and Lunar Rainfall, two works centered around the idea of natural storms and destruction (world-ending in the case of The Pretty Sun).

Blick Art Materials hosts DRANG (STRESS), the more deeply personal half, and includes a portrait of my youngest son, who’s bravely facing some challenges, and 100 Keys, a scene from the recurring nightmare of a close friend of mine.
