The summer went by quickly!  I started graduate school this summer with a leadership class and an organizational behavior class.  Both we a lot of fun and very interesting; both were a lot of work.

This summer, I was also in Bigfork, MN to be part of the Edge Center for the Arts' annual juried show.  It's a tiny town in northern Minnesota and my name was in the newspaper up there.  The judge gave me an honorable mention and my artwork was sold within two days of the opening!

I recommend the checking out Bigfork.  It's small and very welcoming; the art gallery is huge!  The drive is very peaceful and scenic.

Here is the artwork that sold!  It is a color field painting of the North Shore.  I'm hoping to make more.  There was a lot of buzz going around in the gallery about this piece and my interpretation of the North Shore.

I was approached to create a painting that went with the theme "You are the branches and I am the vine."

This painting is about bringing people together from different cultures and backgrounds. United, we become stronger. 

This piece is going to a church in Muhunga, Tanzania as a gift from St. John's Lutheran Church.  Today, it left for Tanzania where it will be presented later this week.

New Wine Glasses!  I didn't make the glasses themselves, but I did the etching.  
And, just for fun, my avocado tree!

It was a day full of printmaking and drawing, yesterday!  Some students experienced printmaking for the first time and had a blast getting messy.

My students wanted to have an art show at the end of our term.  They were so proud of their work.  Congratulations, kiddos, on a successful show!
