Butler Insitute of American Art

 Heirloom Blend 11 x 14 pastel 
“Heirloom Blend,” is currently on exhibit at the Pastel Society of America’s 45th Annual “Enduring Brilliance” Exhibition at the National Arts Club, NYC through Sept 30. Every year, a few select
pastels are chosen by Dr. Louis Zona of the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio,
to hang in the Giffuni Gallery of American Pastels. This years exhibit will run from December
through early 2018.

I am so honored that Dr. Zona selected my work to join the others in the Giffuni gallery. It is a great museum (with a spectacular lunch cafe), so stop in if your holiday highway travels take you west to Michigan or Illinois.

A Work In Progress

The new studio is slowly getting set up. The clip on lights will be history when the electrician puts in the track and overhead lights. But I really wanted to try to do something at the easel.

So, we have "Market Leeks". It's going to take a while to get back into the swing of things, but it sure is fun in the new space— more room, more storage and, eventually, more light.
