It's here! The exhibit opens tomorrow! So freaking psyched.

If you're around, please join me at the Centerville Historical Museum for the opening reception from 5-7 pm on Friday, June 18.

If you're on facebook, you can RSVP here.

57 pieces! I know, that sounds like a ton. But many of them are quite small.

Stuart was hugely helpful with framing the pieces that needed it.

Now that I've gone through that process, I will probably choose my materials differently so the work doesn't need framing in the future. They look great, but man, that was a lot of work! (Thanks, babe!)

I am dying to get back to painting already.

I've been painting since I was 13. I had always just done it for me--- either to get something out or to decorate my space or to give away.  To show at all is totally different for me, but to show a whole body of recent work is just amazing!

Seriously, the hardest part about painting is signing the work. I rarely sign mine because I never feel like they're finished. And since I've never shown, it didn't ever matter.

I finally settled on this:

I like it.
