Open Sesame!

I have some new work... and I thought it was about time for an Open Studio.

I don't think many people got to see my pretty pink painting in person before it went to Charleston, so that one, and a mysterious deep blue one will be on display.

Also, we are moving... so this might be the last Open Studio in this spot.
So come out, look at some art, eat a snack, and help me celebrate 18 years in charming Earlysville.  


patterns for new eyes

what do you think children want to see... what do their eyes want to see? there are lots of new eyes in my family, and i find myself wondering about what kind of pattern and color is most engaging. i know babies are supposed to like bright, primary and uninterrupted shapes... but when they are toddlers, what then, when they eyes have built up a little muscle?

I was reading a few years ago about someone gaining vision and learning to see for the first time.  I don't remember a lot of the details, but what struck me was depth perception, and how hard it was to learn that the view; the sky, the desk, the lamp, the balloon, weren't all within reach like the page in a book, but instead took up room in space, at various distances from your eye.
