Take 'em down, put 'em up

AKA: Art in to the car, art out of the car, art in to the car, art....

Today is the last day I'll have linocuts hanging at Café Dawn here in Salida. The show at Mother's Bistro in Buena Vista continues through June 2.

And yesterday I received the happy news that I will have two pieces again in the National Small Print Show in Creede. The show opens May 22 at the Creede Repertory Theatre. The Darling Man and I tried to go down for the opening last year, but were thwarted by yet another spring blizzard. Keeping our fingers crossed for a pleasant traverse this time.

On the walls for the show: Monarch and Milkweed and Lovely, Dark, and Deep.


  1. Congrats on the Creede show. You missed a good one last year. We made it just in front of the snow. It was 95 when we left La Junta, and snowing flakes the size of my thumb when we made it to our hotel.
    Hope you do well.

  2. Oh, Justin... it would be great to see you. Are you planning to come up this year?

  3. Ohhhhhhhh - so that's what "DM" means! :-D

    I LOVE YOUR "Lovely, Dark, and Deep" lino.

    Great good luck in the Creede show.


  4. *fingers crossed* hopefully it doesn't snow! *crosses toes for added luck*

  5. Sherrie - the shadows on the snow in Lovely, Dark, and Deep are so perfect - totally sets the mood of the whole thing. It is very soothing and peaceful. I could meditate on it for hours (if I could meditate on ANYTHING for very long! I am an impatient meditator.)

    Congrats on the show!

  6. Thank you, Gabrielle. I'm with you on the meditation thing. If I can count to ten with being distracted, it's a good day!
