The combination of missing my cat and seeing a cat shaped pillow at Powell’s (priced at 30 bucks which would be way over my budget pillow-wise) I decided to use left over fabric paint/scraps and make my own. I shall call it “cat-cat” since I can’t think of a creative name, and it guards my bed and keeps it’s eye out for trouble. #pillow #cat #craft #catlady #bed #portland #special

I added a couple “experimental” videos to my portfolio - more for my own state of mind than for entertainment (they’re likely to put folks to sleep). Don’t watch if you’re easily bored.

Monkey Lie (and Lines)
roughly 3 ft x 3ft
mixed media on wood, paper and fabric

Had this in my head for about 2 years - based on the cruel and unethical experiments about social deprivation by Harry Harlow on the rhesus monkeys (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Harlow) 
I painted the cable that runs outside my window above my bed.

The Visual Resources Association Pacific Rim Chapter meeting. I was so lucky to get a chance to attend this. #library #art #archives #visualresources #meeting (at PNCA - Pacific Northwest College of Art)

Today was the first day I started volunteering at the Crumpacker Family Library at the Portland Art Museum. On top of local artist archives, I’m pretty sure it has every exhibition catalog and art book on the planet. Learned a bit about Jefferson’s Library of Congress classification system…

Ran out of my apartment one evening to grab rose petals (aka snatching a few from gardens like a shameful rose thief) for a big painting I’m starting. First I have to finish the other monster that’s on my table. #art #painting #rose #petals #process #panels #collage #mixedmedia #portland

I updated my artist statement to reflect where I’m at right now (pursuing more outlets than just painting). My links page and CV are updated as well.

Making headway with the first video for my portfolio. I just need to record sound (music) for it. #film #humboldt #forest #experimental #video #short #art
