Variations 2019: Outdoor / Indoor Group Series + Artist Reception

For this year’s Artdogs Variations project, we chose to respond to the extensive bridge work taking place in our backyard of downtown Gardiner, Maine. My piece depicts a modern troll.

Find the artwork on the back of the Artdogs building (Arcade St public lot) and under the Bridge St / A1 Diner bridge.

Other current Artdogs work is inside the Circling the Square gallery (275 Water St, Gardiner). Join us for a reception and artist talk at the gallery on Sunday, July 14 at 5:00pm (refreshments provided).

2017 Projects Recap

Navigating the dark and cold of Maine winters can be a challenge. Most of the time I try to “power through” my seasonal impulse to wind down, usually with mixed results at best, and almost always resulting in a case of “the sads” along the way. But this winter I decided to work with my restful impulse, and I found that the months of shadow offered special opportunities for not just reading and enjoying other media, but reflection, and even celebration about accomplishments from the previous year.

With this in mind, I thought I’d share an overview of what I was up to creatively in 2017, in roughly chronological order. And, keep an eye out for 2018 updates; I’ve been working away on a larger project, and I look forward to sharing early products of that work in the coming months. Continue reading

Fall friends and holiday deals

New fall friend prints available at my online store! Get a discount if you buy them together.

The fall is too dark a time to be all alone, so I made a companion piece to the fiddlin’ mouse I drew earlier this fall. This guitar-stummin’ squirrel comes in full color or, newly added, as a black and white coloring page. In fact, Fiddelmouse how has a coloring page, too!

In the spirit of friendship, these partner prints are available with a discount if purchased together as large prints, small prints, or coloring pages. Take a look on my online store.
