Photo Shoots and other fun stuff! March 19 2014

Last week I was hip deep working on the St. Charles Cancer Center tile mural and working on a few paintings for the High Desert Museum show that featured Rainshadow Organics--( yay... purple cabbage and lots of tall spiky leeks and garlic tops) when I got a call from 1859 Magazine to do a photo shoot in the studio.  

Oh no... no time to lose 50 lbs, have a facelift, work on my core muscles---eeek!  
With help from my buddy Molly who does my hair, Janit at Bedouin who found me a great colored top, and Tambi Lane kind photographer it all seemed to work well. Watch for the article in the May/June issue of 1859 Magazine...  see if she really airbrushed out my double chin!

The wonderous workings of glaze and tile March 04 2014

 

Like I said before.... like learning to speak another language... here's  one of the glaze sample tiles...  don't call me "green" call me GBI-15.... don't call me "Orange with Speckles" call me  SR-O..... Yikes.  


Getting A Glazed Look On My Face February 26 2014

Working hard on getting the colors and shapes just right on the first panel for the St. Charles Tile Mural. I am so lucky to have Anita Maze working with me from Kibak Tile. She has so much knowledge about how the glazes work together and great attention to detail when it comes to interpreting my paintings in this different medium.
