This is my painting for The Hive's December show. It's titled The Girl Who Tamed the Elephant in the Room and is a companion piece to a previous Hive painting, The Juggler of Time. This may turn into a series: girls performing in the circus of life.
The Hive Gallery opening reception: Saturday, December 3, 2011, 8-12:30 a.m. show runs through December 31st.

The Hive Gallery's November show is sculpture only. I wanted to try my hand at it. Not being a sculptor, I needed to keep my project simple and manageable. Having just returned from a short camping trip to Yosemite, I found my inspiration: the gray clay reminded me of gray Yosemite rock, which reminded me of The Three Graces rock formation, which reminded me of the cheeky blue birds with the pointed crowns (Steller's Jay) that hopped through the campground whenever there was a possibility of food handouts. Thus, the spire-like bodies topped by animal heads.
"The Three Graces: Bird, Rabbit, Cat" in their state of gray and all dressed up for the Hive's opening reception: Saturday, November 5, 2011, 8 p.m - 12:30 a.m. Show runs through November 26th.

This was originally painted for The Hive Gallery but seems a just-right fit for this topic.
It was titled "Letting Go." When we break through the fear and allow ourselves to let go, we may discover a world infinitely more beautiful and magical on the other side.

The Hive Gallery’s show for the month of October is “Haunted House.” This is the piece I painted for the show, titled “Coming Home.” Ah, but what is this girl coming home to? I imagine it’s her ancestral home, a home she may have left happily for adventure or unhappily as an escape. Is she coming home to claim an inheritance or is it her soul that has come home, greeted by the ones she left behind? The birdcage door is open. She is free. Or is she?
