new new

Having moved to a new house in a new town, its been all hands on deck to unpack and settle in. I have been painting walls and working on shelves and making the new house fit us better. I have a wonderful studio space with a view of the Okanagan Lake!

Its fabulous being here. For now all art is temporarily on hold. I am in the process of making contacts with fellow artists and the community. The local newspaper didnt seem to need my offer of any work. Their loss.

Exciting news is that I am a finalist in the Print Magazine "Hand Drawn" competition, one of about twenty artists, among them also a fellow Pittsburgh Illustrator and friend, Ilene Lederer. The winners have been announced and I am happy to have made it to the finalists. My work will be in a forthcoming edition of the magazine.
