Bird Talk


bird talk 5 1/4 by 8 1/4 inches acrylic & ink
& japanese writing on rice paper

Communication - what we say, how we say it and to whom. it's all in the way you say things that makes the difference. words can heal and words can harm.
find out more about communication at Illustration Friday today!
Couple of reminders: Our charity exhibit: Lovely Hearts is still on in the shop and the gallery until February 28th. Some beautiful works, all under $100 are available here. Also, if you didn't already listen to my first podcast, (ok, it was a little long, but Leigh was pretty amazing!) you can still do so by clicking here. Next week at the gallery brings a brand new exhibition which we are just bursting to get organized - Danny Mansmith, Leigh Pennebaker, Kimberly Lyford and Jeanne McCartin. Get ready for some extreme textiles.
Monday will bring some really big news from me, so stop back. Until then, have a wonderful weekend!
