yarns reception this week

Just a heads up that the Yarns Exhibit reception is this Wednesday, May 2nd, 6pm-8pm at the CSUS University Union 2nd Floor Gallery. Meet the artists of this anthology and see the process that led to the book becoming a reality. Signed copies of the limited edition book will be on hand for purchase ($20). And all book purchases get a free sketch inside to boot. We hope to see you there!

Here is one of the four 11 x 17 process pages.
Just in case of a "Director's" cut 2nd printing of Yarns, this will also fit as a 2 - page spread. ;)

almost final paint

All but a few flatted. And then the fun (and surprisingly quick) process of pulling up highlights begins. As you can see, I couldn't wait on a couple and just jumped in with the lighter paint to give depth. Almost there.
