Bovine Ascent


"Cows are amongst the gentlest of breathing creatures; none show more passionate tenderness to their young when deprived of them; and, in short, I am not ashamed to profess a deep love for these quiet creatures."
~Thomas de Quincey

Two Announcements

Announcement Numero Uno:

On Thursday, March 8, from 6:00-9:00pm, I will be showing my art as part of the Roosevelt Art Walk. This time I will be showing some new collage pieces as well as several from the last show on that big windy day in December. You are invited to stop by, tour the art, eat some delectable snacks, and visit the other art in the neighborhood. Feel free to invite interested friends and family, too.

Announcement Numero Dos:

I've decided, with a gentle push by Ms. Artist B. & Ms. Laughing Crow, to enter my first juried art show. Quite fittingly, the show is called “On Wing,” and it's in conjunction with the Puget Sound Bird Fest. “On Wing” is open to artists residing in King, Snohomish, Island, Jefferson and Kitsap Counties, and all works must be original with bird theme, up to two entries per artist.

So, my question to you, dear art viewers, is what two pieces should I enter?

Here are a few I'm considering, but I'd love your input!

"Protect What You Love"

"The Tender Secret"

"Flutter in My Chest"

The Escape


Happiness


A state you must dare not enter
with hopes of staying,
quicksand in the marshes, and all

the roads leading to a castle
that doesn't exist.
But there it is, as promised,

with its perfect bridge above
the crocodiles,
and its doors forever open.

--Stephen Dunn, Between Angels
