Remember Me?

“Patchwork Platter,” 9.25" x 5.5"

Yea! I won third place!

My other piece, has yet to be properly photographed, but I can now unveil it for you here:

This piece was inspired by the fused glass artwork of Kim Brills and as such was a dedication to her. I interpreted the bottom fused plate as an aerial view of a city map of Austin, TX. So, I decided to reflect it upwards into an image of the skyline of Austin, separating the flat fused plates by a cast glass wave representing Lady Bird Lake ( a reservoir of the Colorado River in downtown Austin). The finishing touches of this piece butted right up against the deadline for dropping it off at A to Z Printing for hanging!

The show continues for the remainder of August. So there’s still time to swing by and see the Lincoln Artists’ Guild 90th Anniversary show, if you haven’t had the chance yet.

Well, I need to take a shower and get packed for Sturgis, SD! It’s going to be a busy couple of months; find me on facebook to keep up with my travels!

Thanks for reading and feel free to forward this on to your friends!
