Big Changes and a Happy New Year!

It has been a tremendously eventful year.  With a move to San Francisco and a new job, the summer was quite busy but developed into a simple enough routine.  The biggest development of the year followed at the end of August with me starting the MFA program at the San Francisco Art Institute.  Now, with the first grad school semester behind me, I am still thrilled to be doing this and having the opportunity to focus on my artwork.

On that note, there are many changes taking place in my art.  With all the fascinating and exciting things that I am learning, my work is going through a lot of re-evaluating, re-examining, and refining.  My usual style and subject matter are awaiting reintegration while I work on the foundation of my narrative.

I am happy to announce that some of these efforts will be on exhibit in March at the Diego Rivera Gallery.  Rest assured I will be sending out additional announcements as the show date approaches.  And if you are in the Bay Area it would be great to see you at the opening.

Hopefully your 2011 was also fruitful and rewarding.  Mine certainly was, though not without a healthy amount of challenge.  Especially at the end of the year and around the holidays, but that is all in the past now.  As Rumi says, "Yesterday is gone and took away its tale. Today we must live a fresh story again."  So I now look forward to the spring semester, creating a lot more art, and sharing it with all of you.   Can't wait to see what 2012 brings into my life and wishing you all a Happy New Year!
