This sketch was completed by Phil Masincup, Meredith Hoffheins, and myself. The are both splendid people and splendid artists. Splendid. The captions says, "the dancing bunnies celebrate their newest hostage."

Silly Sketches

A few random things that I sketched between all of the other random things.

Gallery Talks

The last of the gallery talks. I also wen this evening but could not sketch myself while bumbling my way through it.

Kathleen Palmer talked about her jars and Amanda Dirksen talked about her words.

Last Friday

The Art League at Messiah College has Last Friday instead of First Friday so that the students are able to attend off campus gallery openings and still see the student work. I started this drypoint print at 1a.m. on Friday morning because there was some extra space. I have only pulled two prints by 10a.m. and colored early in the afternoon. I am pretty thrilled about the time frame to completion.

The concept: I have entitled this piece Good Night, Good Morning. The Amen comes from the title of the exhibit. This is the last show for the seniors and the amen signifies the end. If I could cry, I would do it now. Very sad. I used the rooster to signify the new beginning that comes with the morning. So, night prayer and new beginning. I cannot believe I am going to miss this place.

The print: 7 x 10", on Rives BFK (15 x 19.5"), watercolor

This is the show's poster which was designed by Amanda Hackanson-Stacy. I think it is hilarious. Gangmembers: Amanda Dirksen, Bend Bond, Meredith Hoffheins, Amanda Hackanson-Stacy, and Krista Hamlen. Meredith and Amanda HS also designed and lead a live performance that I will work on getting the video of. I was fortunate to be in this as it was both fun and funny.
