So I’ve started the piece and probably got about 3 sqare feet done (of 20), but man, it’s gonna be coo-oo-ool. But these will be the last of them that I post for a while because I don’t want to ruin it for them. Clicking on the images will give you an extra large version.
These are test strips to see how I like varying sized strips. I do like it quite well, and I think I will probably have some of these varied “ribbon badges” interspersed with bigger solid pieces. I’m not completely sold yet, but then I only have a bit more than half of the solid pieces […]
So I was working out some more ideas for the Gammons and I’ve come up with a couple other topics / ideas that I’d like to explore, either in this piece or in future pieces. First, I think I’ve settled on a “satin stitch” for the assemblage. I may mix this up a little once […]
Well, today I started working out the drudgery of cutting leather swatches for the piece the Gammons commissioned me to do before we left Monterey. I’m actually very excited about it because it’s all process and even though I don’t like cutting the insane amount of leather I have to cut, I think the end […]

There are two kinds of artists: ones that see with their eyes and ones that see with their minds. I realized tonight that there are two very strong themes in my work. And somehow, surely not by coincidence they’re very, very close in definition. identity integrity there are a couple others, too, but that’s for […]
Night Studio: A memoir of Philip Guston by Musa Mayer This was one of the most interesting ways of telling a memoir that I may have ever read. Musa Mayer is Guston’s daughter and she tells his story through her own story. It’s a portrait of Guston that is unique to Mayer’s experiences of her […]
So we went up to the city to see the Kiefer retrospective, Heaven and Earth. It was pretty cool. I had several experiences at the exhibit that were cool, but one stands out in my mind especially. I was with my friend, Ellen, who had come down for the exhbit from Washington and we were […]
