 Another winter has passed and I’m back at the outdoor Ithaca Farmer's Market. I’ve got a number of nice new pieces on hand and I would love to show them to you. You could either come to my booth #3 at the Market (for those who are local) or check out the Portfolio page at my website.

Speaking of new work, I'm playing around with ideas for a new Twig Figure series. So far I've only completed number one in the series (see first image below) but ideas for future pieces are swirling around in my head.

I've also been trying to get my work out there in the world.

I will have a piece in the Folksy show at Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center (Solomons, Maryland). Annmarie is a member of the Smithsonian Institution's Affiliations Program. The show runs from April 26 to September 22, 2019.

In May I will participate in a Folk Art Invitational at City Folk Gallery, in Lancaster, Pa. - May 3 to June 1, 2019.

Mother’s Day weekend, May 11-12 2019 - I will be at a show at the the Basilica Arts Farm and Flea Spring Market in Hudson, New York.

After 45 years of making my carved and painted pictures, artwork keeps flowing out of me. There's never a problem in coming up with ideas. Instead there's just not enough time.
