Artist Reception: Thursday, December 1 from 6-8pm


I've been getting back into carving crayons, this time with a different twist.  I remember growing up with a lot of Chinese art and it's many themes.  One of the quintessential theme is of the Four Seasons.  They mark change, progress through life and the beauty of nature.  This is my own interpretation of the Four Seasons.

Thanks Shaun, Mimi and Lori!
Liz- yeah I've been a terrible blogger lately. It's hard to find time and blog when "life" is so busy. I really need to get into better practice.
Thanks Gala, next time :) I'm always around during 1st Thursday.
Thanks Justin! Gail is great.
