It has been a long time since, I dropped an update here.  Though, there have been more regular updates on my Instagram.  Let me get you up to speed.

We just came off our Home Leave in the US, and now we are settling into our new home in Zimbabwe.  It was really nice to spend time with some of our family and friends.  This was also an opportunity to get some art projects done.  Like always I bit off more than I can chew.  So things such as updating my site and rephotographing art fell to the way side.  However, I did manage to paint a triptych for my sister's front room and etch, ink, then sell the last two Armenian bottle lamps.  

The most important art piece for me was The Road Home.  This is the second in a series of etched windows from my Grandfather's barn.  After my grandfather died, I found these windows in a shed on the old Bick Barn property.  The land was being sold, so I took the windows with a plan to make something of them one day.  Living overseas, my art revolves around the places we call home.  I decided that the windows needed  as part of a series for reconnecting with my home.  With my second return to the U.S. I etched and inked the second window.  This project is where the entire etching and inking thing started and it is a more personal one.  

My sister made an immediate claim to From Grandfather's Barn but The Road Home is still unclaimed.
