This Fire

E Sheppell "This Fire" 2011 16x16 acrylic on panel
I am working away to finish up pieces for my upcoming show. This is a new one. The pieces are coming together, just feel that pressure to add a few more. I always complete more than I need but I like having the option to eliminate and make the show flow once the paintings are there. I hope your Thanksgiving was amazing! happy painting weekend!

Cecil Touchon @ Emily Amy Gallery

I went to see the Cecil Touchon show at Emily Amy Gallery this week.  The show is titled "New Works & Old Favorites". It is a mix of collages on paper, panel, and canvas. From the gallery website: Touchon views collage as directly reflective of his personal experience. He states, “This fleeting quality of papers and messages and the images they contain seems a fitting material for the contemplation of our temporal condition- of our brief sojourn in this world".
The show runs until December 3rd. The gallery has a beautiful space- check it out!

Sunday Southern

These days I spend my time at my day job and the rest in my studio. I won't even pretend that I use the kitchen's basically a room I pass through to get to where I need to go. My husband Zak is the one who creates in that room. I am fortunate he loves to cook and likes to make something different to surprise me. This morning he made  jalapeno-chorizo grits with egg and cilantro. A twist on a southern staple.  Yummy!
