Besides painting and drawing, I am always taking photographs of what I find on walks with my dog, hikes in parks or gardening in the yard. I have always thought of them as reference materials, yet have always created them with consideration for design and a respect for what I see. I decided to enter them in an area photography show. It was really gratifying to learn three of my images were juried into the "Change" exhibition at the Arts Mill in Grafton.

From now until November 11, five of my insect acrylic paintings will be part of "The Little Mini Tiny Show: An Un-Juried Show" at the Pink Llama Gallery in Cedarburg, Wisconsin (well, four now - one sold last night! Thanks to Meghan!). Images had to have been no bigger than 5" in any direction, including frame, so they really are small. Each artwork depicts an insect (s) I saw this summer, either in my backyard or in an area nature preserve. My favorite is the two beetles, who I discovered one night, while checking to see who was hanging out on my milkweed plants.

Dixie, the Racine police dog,was my latest inspiration for the Downtown Racine Corporation's K9 Heroes Summer Public Art Project. It was a joy to actually meet her on June 9 for a celebration of all the dogs, the artists and the police men and women who work and care for them. She was smaller then the other dogs but I was told she is one of the best drug sniffing dogs on the force. It was apparent she was totally devoted to her "Dad." Here are some photos from the gathering.
