New Labyrinths!!

Next month, I will  have a show of  labyrinths and snowmen at the Lane Gallery.  The theme is "Winterfest."  I hope you can join me at the reception on December 7 beginning at  6 PM.  The address is 2627 SE Clinton St in Portland.  If you want to know more, check out the website at

To get ready for the show, I have been exploring ways to make labyrinth paintings that will be more affordable than my first ones.  I realized that a lot of the time involved is in developing the design.  I decided to try four labyrinths that are the same design, but interpreted differently.  This is the first of that series.   I am really happy with it.  It is based on the Chartes labyrinth, which is the most well-known.

Hope to see my Portland friends at the reception!

Snowmen at Lane Gallery

Next month, I will have a show at the Lane Gallery.  It will feature labyrinths and snowmen.  When I recently talked with the gallery owner, Gila Lane, she suggested that I bring in some snowmen cards and she will have them on display as the "season" approaches.  Of course, all Winter is snowman season!

So, this is this year's snowman card!  I'm celebrating my "big show" at Lane Gallery.  The artist reception will be December 7.  Save the date!  

The snowman is very happy about being at the Lane Gallery.  Lane Gallery is at what we call Clinton Junction--near the intersection of 26th Ave and Clinton in Southeast Portland and right next to the Press Club.  It's a fun place featuring local artists.   Instead of "open" and "closed," the sign is "Here" or "Not Here."  This is how the Lane Gallery looks from the street:
