Here is a drawing I did for a group show that is up at Part Time Studios on Frankford Ave. in Kensington. The variety of work at the show is quite large, and the pieces are all smaller works that are $150 and under.

It used to be that when I would travel I would read a lot of books, but recently I found that I get more inspired to draw more in my sketch book. Many of these were done after visiting places in England like Kew Gardens, the V&A museum, and different places throughout the countryside.

In my spare time I am continuing to work on this personal project of making an illustrated map of Yellowstone National Park. These are little paintings that will be superimposed on a giant map that I also painted.

So after toiling over making as many new pieces as possible in a short amount of time, my show is being hung tonight, and the opening reception is tomorrow night! The show also features work by Drew Falchetta and will be up from July 8th to sometime through October.

Been working on a few new projects. One is this illustrated map of yellowstone that I posted about awhile ago. I've been doing little paintings of the different sites in the national park that will all be imposed on one big map painting for print.
I also just picked up a gallery show with one other artist in July which will be at a very nice coffee shop in Center City called Chapterhouse. I am putting a couple older paintings in the show but also doing part of a new series about urban gardening and container gardening, which I thought was an appropriate theme since it is almost summer!
This painting features an orange tree, some blackeyed susans, ferns, and a pretty little calico.

Tonight. Saturday March 19, 6-10
TrickGo presents "RECOVER: An Exhibition of remixed album Covers."
TrickGo Gallery & Boutique.
1135 Pine Street. Philadelphia
A bunch of artists were given old album covers to have their way with to collage, paint, or do whatever they wanted to remix them. TrickGo was the first place that I ever had a solo show, so I will definitely be there tonight showing some love.
Tomorrow. Sunday March 20, 3-5.
ELY Senior Illustration Thesis Show
At Hamilton Hall , Broad and Pine Streets.
University of the Arts.
The ELY's are such a defining moment of senior year at uarts. You spend months of planning, executing, reworking, etc. and as a result everybody ends up with lovely series of works to display to the school and to visitors. Good luck everyone. (There are awards involved.)

The other part of this weekend I finished these pieces for a brochure and poster that my step mom and some other people are having printed for an environmental program in Seaside Park New Jersey, that promotes keeping storm drain and runoff water as clean and unpolluted as possible. There is a beautiful bay there, that many people enjoy crabbing, sailing, watching sunsets, and relaxing around.
I spent the first half of this weekend in March planting my new seeds for the spring/summer and repotting some cacti and succulents. I'm so excited to see what will actually grow for me! I have some tomatoes, spinach, mesclun greens, various herbs, green onions, and even cat grass for the cats to munch on.
I've never planted any seeds using these peat pellets, that expand into 1.5" round mounds of dirt, but I think they will work as my greens have already begun to sprout!
Below is my new jade plant I bought at the flower show, where I also purchased some special sand from arizona to put on the top of the soil.
