I had a great time at the open studios this last weekend. I was invited to join a group of artists and we set up our displays in the Studio One Art Center in Oakland. Participating in Open Studios and other shows where I have a booth is important because it gives me a chance to talk with collectors and other artists to get feedback on my work. Of course, a purchase is the best feedback and it makes the experience more fun.
I am working on two series right now. Croplands which is primarily monotypes and my Sea & Shore etchings. I have also begun making collages using my ghost prints and other non-editioned paper that I cut up and glue down.
