Chamber Pot Gallery

To anyone who hasn't already checked it out yet, if you can, go visit the Chamber Pot Gallery - the public restrooms in the cool train station building that houses the Yellow Springs (OH) Chamber of Commerce. Also called a "loo with a view," the gallery is in its second year of showcasing some fine and fun artwork by local and regional artists (including moi). Go here for a sneak peek of what's showing: You can also get to it by going to the Chamber Pot Gallery link below. I sold my first painting and (relatively) quickly made a new one to hang up for the rest of the year or until someone wants to purchase it - whichever comes first. Enjoy!

All Comments Are Welcome

Well, I finally figured out how to open up the conversations to all - bloggers, non-bloggers and anonymous, so feel free...Now, if I could only figure out how to add a "simple" emailing list, so folks (who are so inclined) can find out when new stuff is added here - I'd be thrilled. Is there anybody out there...who knows about this and can explain it in English (not just Bloggese)? I have this love-hate thing with technology, you see. All comments are welcome.

Commissions Welcome

I talk about this at length on our web site, but here's just a quick note to let you know that Jim and I will consider commission work in sculpture and sculpture repair and restoration. And I do photography: if you have a wedding, graduation, anniversary or whatever party that you want photographed, if you need a personal or family portrait, or you have artwork that needs studio documentation, let us know and we'll see if we can help you. Thanks!

Here are some photographs I made awhile back of the driveway and the front of our studio in Yellow Springs. (It looks a bit better now; I should probably make some new pictures).
