It’s been a wonderful morning

 

Todd Camplin, a friend and fellow graduate of the University of North Texas MFA program, wrote a wonderful blog post about my work this morning. See it here. Todd’s artwork consists of the most amazing ink on paper drawings of abstracted text. He is also doing some wonderful work in digital prints. Highly recommended.

Also, I got a wonderful mention by Mary Stone Lamb on Facebook. Mary taught for a year at UNT, my first year as an adjunct. She is happily retired now, enjoying her life, family and friends.

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post but I have updated images in the tabs section of this blog. There is new work that I’ve completed in the last two years. I’ve also been busy completing a commission and exploring some new ideas in taking my work dimensionally. I’d love to hear from you, comments are always welcome!
