We are all affected by this Covid-19 mess. This has been
a great time for me to put some art lessons for kids on-line. You can see some at the Nelson-Atkins blog.
Also, check out the website for 3DHQ on the Plaza in KC. They are making reusable plastic masks and I have hand painted 25, so you can be safe and still make your own unique statement. Go to www.3Dheadquarter.com
Come visit with me in my studio to hear about my latest activism projects - working with Mothers In Charge to help stop local violence. This work has inspired the Balloon Series/works on paper about the emotional side of losing a loved one to violence, inspired by the tradition of letting balloons go in remembrance of a lost relative. The "Anger" piece was recently chosen to be in the permanent collection at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
