Encaustic / Mail Art

In my continuing need to correspond with the greater universe I once in a while do a random set of mailings . . this set of post card size works went to 2 earth work sculptors that I admire, R. Long and P. Dougherty. I have often kept elements of tests or made pieces that will sit around the studio for some time . . eventually they make their way into the world in one form or another.

The extraordinary collaboration between Stella Meades and hundreds of artists has resulted in an amazing collection of handcrafted shoes, which will be sold by donation with money raised to go towards children in countries affected by war. The Victoria show is the second of four shows where the shoes will be shown and sold.
The opening of the Victoria show will take place Friday, Feb. 15, 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. at the Community Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, G6-1001 Douglas St. The shoes will be sold by donation at the Gallery from Feb. 15 to 27, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
If you want to preview the shoes, you can see them on the website:

Distorts . . continued

This piece had it's finishing touches completed today .

Room of All Sorts latest addition . . .

I've been searching for historical images of the Duck building (location of Studio J) since I first glimpsed the book " Stella: An Unrepentant Madam" by Linda Eversole.
Last evening I got to meet Linda at the premiere of the film "Aswang" as part of the Victoria film Festival.
Linda had a role in the film and very graciously signed my book that will be added to the Room of All Sorts.
