I've been collecting old book spines from libraries and the transfer station. What would a 'toolkit' be without books? Some titles are serendipitously appropriate; others may have to be painted over.
This is an invitational show to be held at the Hotchkiss School, in Lakeville, CT. Deadline for completion of the work is January 5, 2018, which seems like a long time away, but I'm sure it will rush by. The idea behind the show is that each artist will chose an item in the Hotchkiss School collection and respond to it in some way. I have chosen an art student's 'tool kit', with paints and brushes and mediums.
I've decided to build a personal toolbox, which displays as a tryptich when open but is modeled after a wall-hung tool cabinet.

I have now switched my domain registration to SquareSpace, though this may take up to seven days to take effect. My old website was more complicated to work with, and while it had a lot of bells and whistles, it was more than I needed or wanted to deal with. This 'drag and drop' site will be easier for me to update and I hope to be adding new work on a regular basis. I will be including some of my favorite work from the past that has already found a new home, but will try to make it clear which of the portfolio falls under this heading.
