Beastly Beings

We are barraged on a daily basis through social media and news sites by opinions, vitriol, snark and drama all contributing to a less than kind environment. The US news is rife with election foolishness and nastiness from both the left and right. We see and compare ourselves to our friends Facebook pages which are, for the most part, carefully groomed to present the best picture possible, causing us to feel despair at not doing more, being more, experiencing more.

We need more empathy, less envy. Let’s try to judge others less and enjoy ourselves for who we are, not what we think we should be.

“Envy” and “Empathy”  for Cactus Gallery’s “Beastly Beings” show opening May 14th.

The Zealot’s Elixir

The Zealot's Elixir

Now showing through March 7 at Modern Eden Gallery, “The Zealot’s Elixir”….a show focusing on snake oil salesmen, false prophets and hope for the lost. My piece, “Shining Apples” (inspired by the song of the same name on the “Tales from the Black Meadow” album by The Soulless Party) is on display with a collection of amazing works. To view the exhibition online check it out here!

A few photos of my contribution to the show.

Sweeping out the cobwebs, Part 1

Seems this corner of the studio has been a wee bit underused….time to tidy up and breathe some life into it again!
Thank you for hanging around and waiting patiently— or at the very least, not unsubscribing—due to lack of posting.
I can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the amount of social networking sites and keeping up with them tends to fall by the wayside. If you are a fan of my Goblinfruit Studio page on Facebook, you might have noticed that I tend to post updates more regularly there. If you haven’t “liked” the page and are on Facebook, I encourage you to pop on over there and give the “like” button a click—especially if you enjoy more frequent updates. There is also a link on my Facebook fan page to subscribe to my mailing list. I will be sending occasional updates on upcoming shows and extra tidbits will appear in newsletters before appearing on Facebook.

You can also find me on Instagram. Most photos will be of works-in-progress, art (not necessarily my own) and art events, cats, and more likely than not, the beers I enjoy. So, if any of that intrigues you, please do follow me.

And…find me on  Twitter if that is  your social site of choice.

Will be back soon, lots to catch up on!
