My solo show, Drawn from the Field, opens on Friday at the Valdez Museum and Historical Archive. I will be at the reception from 6-8 pm. I'm excited to exhibit this collection of over 30 field sketches and drawings, as well as a selection of my sketchbooks. Much of the work is from specimens close up that I found close to home in McCarthy or on the Nizina River. I've been exploring ways of capturing the landscape around me without actually drawing a traditional landscape. If you can't make it to the opening, the exhibit will be up until March 8th, so if you are in Valdez this winter, stop by the museum and let me know what you think.
On Saturday I will be teaching a workshop on building an illustration and drawing from life. I will go over my techniques for creating an accurate depiction and give a short gallery talk. We will work from natural history specimens from the museum's collection or items that students bring. It's going to be fun!
