I’ve been finishing up a number of wall vases and pockets to send off to ~
The Gallery Shop, 824 Pike Street, Lemont, near State College, Pennsylvania
Artspace Gallery, 221 Center Street, Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania and
Butternut Gallery and Bookstore, 35 Pine Street, Montrose, Pennsylvania where my books are also part of the current show, “Illustration, Installation, and Words”.
All are wonderful spaces and supporters of the creative life, filled with work by many artists. I’m grateful to have my work in all three.
On a recent trip to New England, I visited the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.
Lisa Brown and Marcus Ewert were there for the day.
“The mission of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, a non-profit organization in Amherst, Massachusetts, is to inspire a love of art and reading through picture books. The only full-scale museum of its kind in the United States, The Carle collects, preserves, presents, and celebrates picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world. In addition to underscoring the cultural, historical, and artistic significance of picture books and their art form, The Carle offers educational programs that provide a foundation for arts integration and literacy.”

I have been collecting seed pods.
And reading about seeds.
I’ve been playing with palettes.
And continuing to attend the daily butterfly show
A wise old owl lived in an oak
The more he saw the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?
