I'll tell you whut

It's been a while since I last posted. After the show opened, I went back to Hendersonville, NC for over a week and spent time with family and friends. Hendersonville is in the western part of NC in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains near Asheville. It' s a beautiful area. I took a lot of pictures of some of the buildings on Redgates- my family's property, and dilapidated buildings on some of the surrounding country roads. My family runs a seasonal RV park business as well as rents out small summer cottages, but the RV park gets the most action. They've built up their business primarily by word-of-mouth and know most of the folks they rent to very well. The surrounding property is quite beautiful-very natural and not overly manicured like some godawful country club or golf course. I have many strong images that I am currently using in new work I am making now. I'll post some of the snapshots and new works (as these progress) soon.

Also, I'm in the thick of making new pieces for a small solo show in November at a cool little space called Underground Gallery located in Echo Park. Armando Torres is the Director. He's a wonderful, funny, very talented individual, and I'm honored that he wants to have some of my work in his space. The title for the show is Home, Home, Sweet Again. I usually struggle settling on a show title, but this one came to me quickly.

Additionally, I've finally gotten a chance to scan some of the sewn images I had in the July group exhibition, but my website keeps freezing up as I try to add pages, so I'm putting some of the images here.
