Little Paper Planes!

Little Paper Planes invited me to try out an edition or two with them, and I have put two paintings on their fabulous website! Go over and check out all the fabulous work they've got there. I'm thinking that they are PERFECT for Holiday shopping! Yay!

Common Bleedinghearts

Finally got a proper slide shot of this by my wonderful slide photographer, Karen Philippi, in Providence (well Pawtucket really). It is always worth the trip. Now I'm finally figuring out how to make decent prints of these for my portfolio packets with the nice digital lab downstairs in her studio building. This was one of the things I was working on at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in May/June of this year.
